Hello loves, now is the time to beat the drum around all of Chloe's accomplishments, her struggles, her life. This is a once in a lifetime revolutionary who did so much good in hiv and trans advocacy in the face of constant physical pain. She was and is a very important political figure and this is the time to make a joyful noise around this fact. We have created a page for her community here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/...Page/200249273319709 We invite people to post memories, photos...

Thank you so much. This is so appreciated by so many to have your strong voices heard. This was a hard one.

Thank you, Empress and thank you, my sister Viva. This happened the day I left for an extended road trip; shocking and still devastating. I happened to bring a drive that contains photos from Chloe's life, including her wedding that I will share once at my destination. I truly appreciate any and all updates, as I will be away from my NYC circle for a while. Echoing the celebration of Chloe's fierce, courageous and art-filled life rather than details over her transition beyond. Much love and...

I knew Chloe though I haven't talked to her in a few years. I was very sad to hear the news. Part of her strength was the integration of the tragic -- that her departure from the Earth plane had a bit of chaos isn't shocking. Death is kinda messy anyway. Glad I get to learn more about her from folks' positive recollections of her considerable impact. I am glad I got to spend some time with her. See you in a bit, Chloe! Blessings to you and your close ones.....

And under that most classic portrait, had to add this photo from the last time Todd worked with us - as the "general" of our huge production for the opening of Barneys San Francisco in September 2007. Had the great great pleasure of spending almost a week with Todd on the fittings, costuming and everything else - just had no idea it would be our last..

I am quite stunned by the sudden passing of my Blacklips confrere, Todd, AKA Lulu. She was a true original-- drop-dead gorgeous in drag, with an impeccable comedic timing which she really honed during her Blacklips tenure-- not to mention her wig-styling & makeup skills... Really one of the best-- if not THE best. I can still recall, with a smile, her portrayal of the dissipated and jovial Queen Louise XI in both "The Red Shoes" and "Hunch" (Blacklips version of The Hunchback Of Notra...

In our Nightworld, there are two kinds of artists - those who labor over their own creations, and then those who add their talents to the creation of something larger than themselves. Todd was as brilliant as they come, but his art was in service to the collective, to the creation of club/art/style movements. That is why so many of you won't know his name, but you know his work. I'd like to point out his enormous contributions to the following over two decades - BoyBar (three of his Miss...

Thank you for starting this topic Hatches.. Tom Murrin / The Alien Comic was our own Lipstick Traces from the Dadaists, a direct line from the Cabaret Voltaire to the stages of 8 BC, LaMama, Jackie 60, PS 122 and everywhere that really mattered in between. If you knew Tom or had ever seen one of his performances, you will know what a loss this is. From the entire Jackie Factory family, deepest condolences to all of his many fans, family and friends.

Before ever knowing of Tom's contribution to performance art, I first met him as my neighbor when I lived on Ridge street with Faux Pas yeargo ago. Always smiling, always encouraging, always making the effort to support our fledgling careers. A wonderful man. Thru the years I learned of his performances and had a great conversation with Penny Arcade about him and what he gave to the downtown performance scene that soon travelled all across university campuses and was soon called "performance...

Alien Comic was a brand name decades before art marketeers and every aspiring stage denizen wanted to be one.For a long period of time it seemd you could not pick up a local publication with event listings and not find Tom there. That is the mark of a true creative resource, just his ubiquitessness, and it reflected the tremendous output of the fellow, the widespread respect he had built and the eagerness of the audience to want more and more. Also, now, it is like we have to remind...

I was hearing conflicting stories about Chloe's cause of death, including that she had jumped in front of a subway. I did find this statement posted to Linda Simpson's Facebook acct, from "her friends and family", unsigned. But posted by Viva Ruiz, so i would tend to believe it:

Hi Empress, thank you for reposting, yes that is the truth of it although I still don't know who specifically wrote it, it was forwarded to me too. There really aren't words to say how much I and the world will miss her in this plane, but I know we have won the most powerful ally in the world of spirit. In mourning, along w everyone else in our community and beyond. She touched and affected so many lives. xo

I just read what you and viva wrote. Thank you Empress for reposting this for all. Most were worried that she had committed suicide. It was a terrible accident, but accident. I have to believe for myself and all others that she will be shining from another place, writing, being a girl, riding horses and loving us all. Am so proud to have known her.
