“Party Monster” Michael Alig Thinks You Gays Are All Totally Boring Now

Former early ’90s club kid Michael Alig has been on a media tour of sorts following his release from a 17-year prison stay for killing fellow club kid Angel Melendez. We’re not quite sure what it is that he’s promoting, but during an interview with Huffpo Live he took the opportunity to share how dreadfully boring he finds today’s gays.

In the interview, he says:

“Once it’s kind of been accepted all around I wonder if it will even hold any excitement anymore because we’re becoming as boring as straight people.”

While we do realize that fighting for our rights and becoming increasingly accepted doesn’t have the same excitement factor as the sex, drugs, and murder that got Alig locked up in the first place, it’s interesting to see the generational shift in LGBT rights through the eyes of someone who’s been gone for a long time.

We wonder if Melendez and Alig himself would’ve been on the front lines of LGBT rights had things turned out a bit differently for both.

    Michael Alig is a piece of shit.

  • NiceNCool1

    I’m pleased to become boring. The implications are a great thing. However, the people who I wish found us the most boring are the religious fundamentalists. Right now, they still find us far too fascinating. They can’t seem to stop talking about us, and frankly it’s a bit sad and creepy. I wish they would just move on. Can we take out a restraining order? Hmmmmmmmm.

    I hope this is the lone Queerty story on this cracked-out murderer.

    And if having a career, owning a home, hitting up happy hour, and maybe a vacation now and then makes someone boring, then that’s a title I’ll gladly own.

    Go away, you sociopath.

  • Lvng1tor

    No doubt..I worked my butt off to be this boring. I marched, was out, was attacked and sacrificed so gay kids could be “boring” instead of beaten. This man is a jack a&& relic who only cares about himself like all sociopath murderers.


    That Alig, what a cut-up!

  • tdx3fan

    @JennyFromdabloc: He is white, cute and controversial… He will continue to make the news media and QT. Its actually Michael Sams who will probably fade out of the media spot light.

  • Tookietookie123

    So finally getting a say on how we’re treated by out government and having the right to marry is boring? I think we owe it to gay people in the past to take advantage of all the rights we have to lead normal lives and to start families the way they could never even hope for. Well I’d rather be the most boring person on the planet than to be a murdering crystal queen like you.

  • Kenover

    Someone should tell Alig that murdering and dismembering people doesn’t make you interesting… just sociopathic.

  • Cam

    How sad that Alig doesn’t realize he is far more boring than anything anybody else is doing.

    He is a drugged out murderer who has spent close to two decades doing nothing.

  • Blackceo

    Whatever killer!! Why is this brutal murderer being given the time of day? I’d be absolutely livid if I was the friend or loved one of the guy he dismembered!!

  • robirob

    While it may be true, nobody will appreciate the message coming from someone like Alig. It’s the same thing with Gwyneth Paltrow where nobody cares about what some priviledged white woman with lots of money and hired help has to say about raising children and living a healthy lifestyle that costs a ton of money.

  • Billy Budd

    Queerty shouldn’t waste time with this kind of news. the guy is a criminal and has no idea of what hes saying. If gays want to be more mainstream, let them be more mainstream. If a guy prefers to live a life of never ending sex adventures, that is valid also. We should be allowed to choose our lifestyles without raising any eyebrows. If we want to marry, we marry. If we just want to fuck, we should fuck.

  • woodin

    would the interviewers, journalists or publishers line up for this guy if it was their brother, friend or neighbor Alig murdered and dismembered?

  • Billy Budd

    He is not a party monster. He is just a monster.

  • erikwm

    Don’t give this murderer publicity. He’s a sociopath.

  • sejjo

    I personally can’t wait for the day when all gay people are as boring as straight people.

  • Mezaien

    We the HOMOS are Boring! well he spend a lot of time with us the HOMOS. What dose he doing in bed at home? and with how? just asking.

  • Chevelter

    A media tour, eh? How many interviews does Angel Melendez get to give these days?

  • BrokebackBob

    Michael Alig got out just in time to find out he is OVER. He should be glad he managed to avoid HIV/AIDS during his stay in the big house. Oh, I almost forgot, Michael, guess what sweetie, YOU are boring.

  • Vegas Tearoom

    It would not surprise me if he made lots of money off of his ill got notoriety and became a vocal Republican. He’s a user. He will use.

  • TVC 15

    Did you guys actually watch the video? It seems everyone who commented is very quick to pull the trigger at this guy, but haven’t actually seen how and in what context he said that.

    He was actually quite amenable, smart and funny about it. I suggest you all watch the interview.

  • drivendervish

    I really don’t understand why a guy who just got out of prison for murder is on a “media tour”. But I am not particularly surprised that he failed to mature and develop emotionally while in prison.

  • fagburn

    Silly Michael, didn’t he know that if a gay man wants to kill someone he should join the US Army?

    Then all the right-wing gaybores will cream their overpriced underpants over you.

  • Ogre Magi

    He is right

  • Geoff B

    He thinks I’m boring. I think he should have gotten the needle. Whatever.

  • briguy

    Sorry to say this guys but he is absolutely right ! The gay community use to be the innovators , now it is lame and followers ! We have lost the edginess . So sad !!!
