Brooke Candy's 10 Queer Music & Visual Inspirations: Mykki Blanco, Morrissey & More - Billboard
Basically Morrissey is the coolest human. But I had a friend who went on tour with him, and one of his favorite things to do after a show, Morrissey would go to a dive bar and he would sit at the bar, and he would get really drunk, and he would wait for some macho, meathead f—er to come in and sit down next to him and then he would start a conversation. He would throw a little bait on by hitting on whoever was sitting next to him, and he would wait to see, "Is this person going to be homophobic? If this person is going to call me a ‘f----t’ or they do anything homophobic, I’m going to take them outside and beat them up," and it was like every night. He would like to bar fight homophobic bros, which I think is so fun. I think more people after their shows should beat up some homophobes.
