Camp

#1

About a fortnight late with this thread after the Met Gala’ s theme of camp. Nobody was actually able to define camp very well beforehand as it is quite a slippery concept. Do you anything you would perceive to be camp in your life?

I would say drinking a tin of M&S vodka soda on a train can be Camp -depending on the destination - , as would Celia Imrie walking a saluki, which admittedly I have never seen.

I have the feeling this thread could go very bad very quickly

I did think that initially, but there’s no reason why it needs to. Camp is supposed to be fun!

I love Kenneth Williams. He seems to be the epitome of camp for me.

I like John Waters definition in the Simpsons when he calls it the ludicrously tragic or the tragically ludicrous

Went camping one night with cubs, it was about 2 miles from my house and it was raining and I cried a lot and my mum had to come and collect me and take me home before the night was through.

Got to go potholing though
