Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day         Leslie Monk

27 June 2015

When Arnold Schwarzenegger showed his solidarity with "gay marriage" celebrated timely with this Gay Pride day, I realised Arnold and I had something in common, and not only the muscle tone.

 

I have never seen a Terminator Movie but I have seen "Pumping Iron" which came out of New York and somehow resonated with those Homo-erotic Andy Warhol movies, Heat , Flesh, etc. .

I saw Flesh in a pub with the late great George Melly. When I say "with George", he happened to be in the same pub in Shepherds Bush. Melly was the Observer film critic at the time and he championed the Warhol movies, that were opposed and indeed banned by the film censor.

I have only glanced sidewise at Arnold since Pumping Iron, and yes, with some astonishment and disbelief of his various guises and political disguises ever since.

I did however make these two "gay" miniature water-colours in '94, as so recorded in my own hand. I apologise to gay readers for stealing muscle man gay iconography. I don't know what came over me in 94. I think it was Mrs Monk's new water colour kit.

Both water colours have remained unseen in a cupboard ever since, and then just yesterday Mrs Monk surprised me with them and demanded that I publish them so that she would have something to tweet about on Gay Pride day.

Soon thereafter I was then told about Arnold's tweet that terminated a homophobic macho terminator-fan, who disapproved of Arnold's stand on gay marriage.

Hasta la vista.
