I'm new to this site, but have been reading the dialogue about Greer. I'm an artist, post op trans, and quite a few years back I came across Greer's name when I was searching the net for info about trans artists. Not that it really matters what the heck a person is....art is art. Still, just wanted to see what other artists were out there that had experienced some similar things in life as myself. Anyways, though I have only seen photographs of Greer's dolls and Greer herself, I have become a fan of her work. I can't wait to go to the Mattress Factory to see the G.L. display. I feel sad that she died so young, and that there seems to have been quite a bit of tragedy in her life. I can relate to a lot of it...maybe thats why seeing even just photographs of her dolls has moved me so. I'm very glad that you have had this running topic about her, and that those that knew her (like JoJo) have been kind enough to relay some information about the artist and human that she was. Thanks. I put a little information about her on my website in the hopes that people will search out more info on her and her dolls. I hope people keep posting stuff about her and her life!!
