As a fan of Greers, and someone just trying to find out more about her, I was glad to have found this site and group. But I was getting kind of depressed with some of the negative vibe. I also was wondering why all the personal letters would be posted publicly. I could see maybe a few quotes or lines, maybe a section or two, but whole letters with personal feelings etc. ? Just my opinion. I didn't know Greer, and I don't know anyone posting, family or friends, and I don't know who is right or wrong about facts and information. I just like to hear things about Greer, hopefully things that are true.
I have enjoyed JoJo's posts with pictures and stories. The picture of your Greer in the wedding dress, thats so cool. I love the doll, and the dress too. Thanks JoJo. Also, the photo you got on Ebay, I have one too, but mine is signed by the photographer Chikiris, but not Greer . I know she was ill when it was taken, but I cherish it, because it is Greer. I always tell people about her and her art.
I'm also so glad Paul Monroe posted......thanks Paul. Hearing all the little things about Greer is just too cool.
I would like to add just a few personal thoughts. Like Greer, I'm a post op transsexual female. Big deal but...the fact is for most people like me, you end up being a lot closer with friends and lovers than you ever are with your family. Most families struggle with tg family members, and some end up not accepting you at all. Like you did something wrong by being yourself. So you end up creating your own damn family of friends that just love you and accept you for who you are. My friends know me one hell of a lot better than anyone in my family. Maybe Greer was the same?
I was bummed out to hear that so many of Greer's things were tossed out in the trash after she died. I don't understand that. Guess all that is in the past. And one final thing, JoJo, I laughed out loud when I read the story about when you gave Greer Big Bird, and her tossing it and saying what she did.
