HERMAPHRODITE by CLIVE BARKER.

Clive Barker was born in Liverpool, England, a painter and school welfare officer, and Leonard Barker, a personnel director for an industrial relations firm. Educated at Dovedale Primary School and Quarry Bank High School, he studied English and Philosophy at Liverpool University and his picture now hangs in the entrance hallway to the Philosophy Department. It was in Liverpool in 1975 that he met his first partner, John Gregson, with whom he lived until 1986. Gregson was a major influence in Barker's early artistic life and provided the support mechanisms that enabled Barker to indulge in his love of theatre and writing novels. Volume 2 of 'The Books of Blood' and 'The Damnation Game' are dedicated to him. Barker now lives in Los Angeles, California.
In 2003, Clive Barker received The Davidson/Valentini Award at the 15th GLAAD Media Awards. This award is presented "to an openly lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender individual who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights for any of those communities".
