12-03-1953 – 05-13-1992 Patrick Angus – Born in North Hollywood, California. He was an American gay artist. He is known for his paintings depicting the young male erotic dancers at the
Gaiety Theater (gay burlesque theatre) in New York City. Because he chose to paint the gay strip clubs and the bathhouses, his work was disapproved by the gay establishment that thought his work as “politically incorrect” and therefore his work was closed off to the commercial art market. In the 1980s, his work was introduced by Robert Patrick through the gay magazine Christopher Street. As a result, his work began to sell. The openly gay artist David Hockney bought five of his paintings. Angus’ work is unique in the history of art for their compassionate depiction of the longing and loneliness of some gay men. In the early 1990s, Angus was diagnosed with AIDS. In the last months of his life, three one-man shows were organized. On his death bed in 1992, when he saw the proofs for a book of his paintings, he said, “This is the happiest day of my life.”

In 2011, Musto was named one of the most influential LGBT personalities in the Out 100.
