Wait, this is only the third week but I think we’ve found our champion insane Gay Outlaw. Emile Griffith is insane. He was one of the best boxers in the world in oldentimes, but wait here’s what’s so crazy. In 1962 he fought Benny Paret at Madison Square Garden and Griffith beat him so hard that Paret lost conciousness and died 10 days later. That is insane. But what is MOST insane about the whole thing is that it turns out Paret had called Griffith a “faggot” at the weigh-in. Wait, is this an early 60’s case of Bashing Back? Dude I don’t know because homicide is just crazy. Also the media at the time wouldn’t even report that Paret called him a faggot because they didn’t want to even publish anything gay, even a gay word. Griffith didn’t kill him intentionally, he maintains, but he’s been freaking out about it ever since. He came out later in life and told Sports Illustrated this: “I keep thinking how strange it is … I kill a man and most people understand and forgive me. However, I love a man, and to so many people this is an unforgivable sin; this makes me an evil person. So, even though I never went to jail, I have been in prison almost all my life.” Wait, that is insane and beautiful. Emile Griffith is one of my favorite gay outlaws ever even though the fact that he killed someone is insane.

Bill Miner is sort of insane, and just like our last outlaw Roger Casement, was well-moustached. Just like Jean Genet, he’s one of those dudes who will just not stop robbing people. Like on the way to the courthouse to answer charges he’ll rob you. Dude is crazy. And he liked boys, according to the Pinkerton Guards who spent like a million dollars investigating him. And like any good gay, he had a way with words, inventing the now-necessary robbery phrase “Hands Up!” when shoving a gun in peoples faces. I like Miner because he knew how to make that money. He had a few really gay nicknames, too. “The Grey Fox” was one, and “The Gentleman Robber” is another. Supposedly he was really polite when robbing people of their shit.
