'I went on to a house in Aubrey Walk W8 to be photographed for Queen magazine. It was all very bright. A lot of clever and attractive young people. A young man said, "We're doing the 'goodies' today". "What do you mean?" I said. He showed me a photograph to be included in the same issue as ours. It was of a group of about eight people - including Nicholas Tomalin and Kathy McGowan. "They're the baddies," he said. "That'll be on the opposite page to yours." They're going to contrast various sets of people. The rest of my group were soon assembled, Tom Courtenay, Lucy Fleming, Susannah York and a Chinese girl, and a young man wearing a gold coat and a male mini-skirt. "Do you go around in that all the time?" I said. "No," he said,
"I changed upstairs." After the photographs were taken we sat in a rather nice room. I drank lemonade. And then I went home.'
