Queerty is better as a member
Peeled Paint, Rochester, New York, 1959
I studied under Minor at MIT in the 70’s. Class time with him was like going to church: it was as much a spiritual experience as a technical craft education (at which he was a master.) Several fellow students treated him like an authentic guru, but I always felt there was a lot more going on with him than he was able or allowed to express. Academic Cambridge wasn’t as homophobic as most places then, but it wasn’t particularly welcoming either. And for someone of Minor’s generation, the gay witch hunts of the 50’s would not be a distant memory. I’m glad to see his full dimensions and that he is getting belated recognition after unearthing these hidden images.
