New Website raydar.com.au lauches from Australia with some exclusive prison correspondence from Michael Alig, Drano killer. The interview, conducted through the mail by Danny Corvini, is not new–the Party Monster movie hadn’t even been shot yet–but it’s exhaustive, covering the gamut of usual Alig topics: club kids, New York parties, family, boyfriends, drugs, and sex in prison.
As unbelievable as this may sound, being openly gay in prison can actually be a positive thing – there’s no stigma attached to being gay whatsoever. In fact, openly gay men are a commodity in here. The straightest, most macho types all want to “befriend” the openly gay inmates – of which there are very few – in order to reaffirm their own masculinity . In other words, the butch types all want an openly gay type as a sex partner. It seems they (the butch types) don’t want to meet another one of their own. They don’t crave company with other macho men. They crave the company of feminine, sensitive types. It’s almost.. no, it actually is .. romantic.
