I lost many friends during the #AIDS crisis.
I still miss them.
I wrote this about #AssottoSaint, who I am thinking of with love on this #WorldAIDSDay
He'd only be 61, were he still alive today.

Remembering Assotto Saint: A Fierce and Fatal Vision shar.es/aa5OB1
"At some point I stopped going to funerals. I had become that woman, the one who keens and wails in the back of the church or synagogue or memorial hall, the one who everyone thinks might throw herself into the open pit of grave or onto the coffin or urn."

"That fight was our gay Normandy and it consumed all our time, all our conversations. Like whispered messages from a foxhole, staccato shots over the bow of life, we spoke to each other like it might be our last time."

My friend #AssottoSaint was a beautiful magnificent talented writer & gorgeous queen.
I miss him to this day.
If you watched #PoseFX
tonight, you might want to read this.
He wanted to raise the voices of the suppressed till his last breath.
And did.

This is one of those pieces that I am so grateful to have written. It tells a story of a time, a place, an urgency.

#AIDS was with us 24/7. It was a war. It was a terror. It pulsed through our lives.
Watching #PoseFX brought it all back in a rush--the memories, hospital rooms, losses, funerals.

The last gay funeral I went to--for the husband of a co-worker--I couldn't stop crying. I cried for days.Curled in a fetal position.

Those lives & stories remain with us. Always. 💜
