Quentin Crisp (born Denis Charles Pratt; 25 December 1908 – 21 November 1999) was an English writer, raconteur and actor. He changed his name to Quentin Crisp in his twenties after leaving home and cultivating his effeminate appearance to a standard that both shocked contemporary Londoners and provoked homophobic attacks.

THE BLACK CAT: After leaving school Crisp began visiting the cafés of Soho – his favorite being The Black Cat in Old Compton Street – meeting other young homosexual men and rent-boys, and experimenting with make-up and women's clothes.

"YES, LORD?": For the first twenty or so years of owning his own telephone he habitually answered calls with the phrase: "Yes, Lord?" ("Just in case," he once said.) Later on he changed it to: "Oh yes?" in a querulous tone of voice. 

THE NAKED CIVIL SERVANT: The Naked Civil Servant is his 1968 autobiography. The book contains many anecdotes about Crisp's life, including troubles he faced by refusing to hide his homosexuality and flamboyant lifestyle during a time when such behavior was criminalized in the United Kingdom.
