RIP Trans Activist Chloe Dzubilo

Chloe Dzubilo.jpg
Writes my friend Viva Ruiz:

"Chloe Dzubilo passed a few days ago. Transwoman, punk rock star, radical activist.

"She had government appointments to all kinds of HIV and Trans councils in NY state.

"She was on the front lines of everything, meanwhile a 23-plus-year HIV survivor.

"She was overmedicated and fell in subway tracks last Friday.

"No press about anything, but I think the New York Times just reached out to write the obit.

"We will not let her die without making much of her passing, she deserves to be recognized for everything she lived for."

She was lovely. What kind of medications was she overmedicated on? I thought she'd been clean for a long time. I know she helped many people get clean too.

well, i guess i turned out to be wrong about the NYT obit, that was the word within the circle a few days ago but didn't manifest, or hasn't yet. xo

She had a profound effect on me and so many others: so brave, wise, and strong -- accepting and defiant in all the right ways. A role model. And she always made me laugh! Rest in peace Chloe. Your spirit will stay in our hearts and minds always.

Thanks. I have been very upset by the lack of coverage of this remarkable person. She touched so many, in her activism, performances, recovery, battle with HIV and the accompanying pain, her humor. Glad to know someone is memoralizing Chloe in the press.
