ON April 15th the Religion of Antinous remembers Jean Genet as a Saint of Antinous.
Saint Jean Genet was one of the first and most modern gay poets, whose elegance and sordid love for the street life was unprecedented, and has never been matched.
Among his most fervent desires, expressed from the very beginning was that he should one day be elevated to Sainthood.
We of the Religion of Antinous, fully and faithfully, take faith in the spirit of Saint Jean Genet, through whom the eternal voice of Antinous spoke with the most voluptuousness and vain-glory.
Saint Jean Genet died on this day in Paris in1986.
