17. Brad Davis (1949-1991)
Querelle star Brad Davis was everything you’re not supposed to be: a hustler, a drug addict, a bisexual. Though he was widely recognized for his role in Midnight Express—a movie whose soundtrack I listen to a lot, oddly—his career never really went very far beyond the one Fassbinder movie and the imaginations of many, many gay men.
Incidentally the above photo was taken by Helen Mirren of all people.
