ROBERT PATRICK 1937 - 2023
PQ mourns the loss of the darling of our scene Robert Patrick. For the last 10 years Robert has been a major part of our community. From inflating alien decor, to his brilliant songs, to coffee chats, to screenings and productions of his theatrical work, Robert has been a wonderful friend and collaborator. His pioneering work in theater at the Caffe Cino and beyond laid the foundation upon which we stand as queer artists. We miss him dearly and there will be a PQ memorial for him at Akbar in the coming months.
