long live nan
after watching nan's video, my friend mary poppins asked how would i compare 70s NY with contemporary BA? i answered her in spanish, so here goes my translation:
as far as drag queens and the gay/lesbian/bi/TG community many human rights battles were won since the 70s, both here & up north...though sadly there's still much injustice to defeat (gobama!)
after the 70s came AIDS, so now we live in a different world: that of the survivors; and this is true across borders
as far as the spirit of nan, cookie mueller & friends, they're our pathfinders but as far as i can see many of us still dance to the beat of the same drum: love of art...of freedom...of each other; here, there, everywhere; hopefully for a long time to come.
