Let's continue with LGBT History month:
Check out my latest article on Vital Voice:
Not long ago the news was filled with the details of a
ridiculous raid in New York City. The Department of
Homeland Security had raided the offices of a website called
One of the most famous “rentboys” in the past was Denny Fouts. His career spanned the 30's and 40's.
He is called the twentieth century's most famous male prostitute. A young good looking boy from Florida whose grasp on how to use his sexuality propelled him to great heights. He befriended and bedded the rich and celebrated: in the process Fouts conquered the world.
His benefactors were a series of wealthy male and females. His friends, included such notables as Christopher Isherwood and Truman Capote. Isherwood described him as an almost mythic figure, "the most expensive male prostitute in the world" and Capote called him the "Best-Kept Boy in the World".
Fouts' occasionally outrageous behavior made some uncomfortable. He once shocked everyone by shooting flaming arrows from his Paris hotel window onto the busy Champs Élysées below"
Michael Shelden remarked that Fouts' "'Deep South' charm masked a volatile, sometimes nasty temper. There were rumors about his past and tales of erratic, dangerous behavior." Perhaps it was precisely that mystic which kept the young man in such demand.
During World War II, Fouts was sent back to the US for his “safety”. He met Isherwood in Hollywood in August 1940. Fouts moved in with him in the summer of 1941 to "lead a life of meditation". This was described in Isherwood's “Down There on a Visit”, where Fouts was represented as the character Paul.
Some time into the war, Fouts, a conscientious objector, was drafted for the Civilian Public Service Camp. He later earned his high school diploma, studied medicine at UCLA and then returned to Europe after the war. While in Paris, he sent Truman Capote a blank check with only the word "come" written on it. Capote accepted his offer to visit, and they would spend hours together in Fouts' dark apartment on the Rue de Bac, talking and listening to Fouts' stories.
Fouts was allegedly sexually involved with numerous notable figures.
"Myth surrounds Denham Fouts", said one of his friends. "He invented himself. If people didn't know his background he would make it up."
Fouts spent much of his later life dissolute. He died at the age of 34 in 1948, of heart problems.
Truman Capote said: "to watch him walk into a room was an
He was beyond being good-looking; he was the
single most charming-looking person I've ever seen.” He
claimed that "had Denham Fouts yielded to Hitler's
advances there would have been no World War Two."
Sounds like a bit of fantasy doesn't it? But then Denny Fouts
lived a life of fantasy rarely to be duplicated.
