WE honour David Bowie as a SAINT OF ANTINOUS.
He was born 8th January 1947 and died of cancer 10th January 2016 ... having revolutionized Western popular culture.
When homosexuality was still considered a shameful secret to many, Bowie told the world he was gay, and music ... and the lives of many of his fans and followers ... would never be the same.
"I loved how he challenged people about how gender was represented," says Adam Lambert of Bowie's beyond-music contributions.
Married to Iman, a Somali-American, since 1992, Bowie let unconventionally matched and gendered heteros know their nonconformity would be cool too. They could all be heroes, each and every day.
