Last year during Chloe Dzubilo’s memorial Antony Hegarty of Antony & the Johnsons (named after Marsha P Johnson) performed Rapture and then broke into an impromptu political speech about the diminishing circles of healthcare for trans people & long term survivors of HIV/AIDS, which contributed to Chloe’s death.  Really powerful.  This is the audio from Out-FM, I originally made this video I made for my old Lent blog.

NYCers: please come to Thursday’s celebration of Chloe Dzubilo’s, Marsha P Johnson & Sylvia Rivera’s lives at Judson Memorial Church (55 Washington Sq S, Manhattan)!  Antony is performing again, Rosario Dawson Mcs, I may do some minor speechifying in honor of trans OWS activists.  Elizabeth Rivera, long term trans activism currently at Make the Road will be honored along with the creators of the documentary “Pay it No Mind: Marsha P. Johnson”
