Thank you, David Bowie

Posted: January 11, 2016 in Uncategorized

On the very first page of my very first diary in big round I’m-still-learning-to-write printing was one sentence. I love David Bowie. I was probably six or seven at the time. Labyrinth was my life and David Bowie and the Goblin King were my first loves.

Over the years I fell in love with David Bowie again and again. As Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke. As Thomas Jerome Newton in The Man Who Fell To Earth and as an Earthling. So I would like to thank him for being my first love and my tenth, for showing me that it was okay to be yourself no matter which self that might be, and for making me realize I was not alone. I belonged.

Thank you, David Bowie, for giving me the courage to be who I am. Not just once but over and over again. I would never have been able to do it without you. Thank you. You will always be my king.
