MARK MORRISROE
SAINT OF ANTINOUS


WE celebrate the life of punk performance artist and photographer Mark Morrisroe, Saint and martyr of Antinous.

Antinous is the god of "lost boys," and Saint Mark stands as a beacon of admonition but also of hope for future generations. A former teenage prostitute, drug addict, self-mutilation "cutter," cross-dresser, photographer and performance artist, he died from AIDS at age 30 in 1989.

Mark was an outlaw on every front -- sexually, socially and artistically. He was marked by his dramatic and violent adolescence as a teenage prostitute with a deep distrust and a fierce sense of his uniqueness.

When Nan Goldin met him in Art School in 1977, he left fesces in her mailbox as a gesture of friendship. Limping wildly down the halls in his torn T-shirts, calling himself Mark Dirt, he was Boston's first punk.

He developed into a photographer with a completely distinctive artistic vision and signature. Both his pictures of his lovers, close friends, and objects of desire, and his touching still-lifes of rooms, dead flowers, and dream images stand as timeless fragments of his life, resonating with sexual longing, loneliness, and loss.

Mark later said, "It kills me to look at my old photographs of myself and my friends. We were such beautiful, sexy kids but we always felt bad because we thought we were ugly at the time. It was because we were such outcasts in high school and so unpopular. We believed what other people said. If any one of us could have seen how attractive we really were we might have made something better of our lives. I'm the only guy that I know who wanted to run away to be a prostitute."

Flamen Antinoalis Antonyus Subia says: "What a genius…We love him… and we consecrate him as a Saint of Antinous…may his name live forever and ever, may he take his eternal place with Antinous on the Sacred Boat of Millions of Years."

  1. Do you know that there is a great herbal doctor who can cure any deadly disease like herpes, hiv/aids, cancer, syphilis, madness, hepatitis b, STD e.t.c. well my main purpose of wACriting this to the whole world is about the great deeds DR ODOMA  did for me. I was diagnosed of a deadly disease called HIV/AIDS since the year 2000, ever since then i have been taking medications on till i met a great herbal doctor. though i never believed in Herb medicine, i saw many testimonies on how he cured so many people and i decided to contact him. so i contacted him through his email, he gave me a form to fill, i filled it and send it back to him and then he told me that he would require some items to prepare a herbal medicine for me. i did'nt know were to find the items, and he told me that the only alternative is to help me get the items and he helped me purchase the items from the items seller. i promised my self to do anything to get cured, so i sent him the money and he prepared a medicine for me and he told me how i will be taking it. he asked me to have faith and believed in him which i did, 7 days latter he asked me to go for a check-up, when i did the check-up i was tested HIV Negative.
