    New York Remembers Chloe Dzubilo, Trans Rebel with a Cause

    Read the post: http://www.housingworks.org/blogs/detail/chloe-dzubilo-memorial/

    On Saturday a packed church said goodbye to Chloe Dzubilo, the fierce, iconic transgender activist, punk rocker, and former Housing Works client who died in February.

    It was a ceremony fit for an individual known widely for kicking convention and embracing glamour. Men dressed as greek gods tended the entrance to the sanctuary at Judson Memorial Church in New York City; a sea of glitter covered the altar; and a pair of winged gold horses flanked the stage.

    “Chloe, we are here today to raise you up, so that future generations will learn what you did on their behalf,” said long-time friend Viva Ruiz, dressed in flowing white. “It is fitting that we elevate one who refused to be quiet, and who in the darkest places kept all her torches blazing.”

    Trans Lives Matter! Justice for Islan Nettles
    - a multimedia photography piece by Seyi Adebanjo

    A powerful and intensely moving document of a community vigil for Islan Nettles a transgender Womyn of Color and victim of hate crime.

    Because the personal is political.
    Because the brutal and increasing attacks on Trans Womyn of Color are outrageous their victimization causes outrage.
    Because healing and action tighten our fists and boom our voices.

    Islan’s murder was a hate crime, she was beaten to death in front of an
    NYPD precinct in Harlem. She was only 21.
    August 27th, 2013 Vigil at Jackie Robinson Park in Harlem steps away from where she was murdered.

    This endeavor captured the love and support community brought to sustain each other and her family; along with the continued oppression that occurs in the Queer community noting the increasingly particular targets of transgender and gender non conforming people.
