I heard at the Jackie party last night very upsetting news which was updated for us this morning by Antony. Page ingested "a large amount of poison" sometime yesterday I believe, and is now in Cabrini hospital. According to reports last night it was believed to be an OD rather than a suicide attempt. Antony tells me that she was moved to the hospice of Cabrini this morning. That is obviously not a good sign - a move to hospice generally means that a patient is terminal. JD was also told last...
I just returned from Cabrini. All you have said above is unfortunately, true. Visitiors are welcome, it seems. I don't know what else to say. Page is the greatest, and always an inspiration. So sad, so very sad.

Uncommon talent, very decent human being, kind, considerate to me always. I would have to call Page a lady in every sense of the word-what a world it would be if we could all be exquisite, inventive, well mannered and generous. [This message was edited by Rose Royalle on 07-22-02 at 07:10 AM.]
This news made me sad. I never knew her on a personal level, but Page was one of the first freaks I saw when I came to New York. I have a picture of her somewhere from my Louis Quatorze days backstage at the Pyramid totally nude with all-blue body paint, white hair, white nipples and white sunglasses. I think it was at Linda Simpson's Channel 69 party. For a kick I sent the picture of Page to my family back home. As liberal as they are, they still blinked when they saw it and cleared their...
yes Chi Chi. - I also knew Page vaguely from working on a Blacklips show with Antony years ago. She sang "River of Sorrow". She was sweet and lived up to her brash reputation (Danielle Willis used to try and shock me with page stories before i moved to New York!) Anyway - I hope I captured her a little. . My honey Mike just met her recently and was also saddened by the news. He was struck by how she was so good natured and would talk to anyone. [This message was edited by Jade on 07-23-02 at...
When I first arrived in the Blade Runner 'esuqe city that New York was in 1990, I remember seeing this tall "Woman" with a bleach blonde flatop, horned rimmed sunglassed, in the dark of night, and glitter red lipstick, while dressed in a retro new wave look about 10 years before anyone thought it was cool to bring that back. She waltzed up to me and said, "Hi, I'm Page...who are you ?" My eyes opened a little wider and what was possible in this life became a little broader and I saw the...
Very well put Lily! Page seems to have that effect on people, it's true...she certainly brightened my horizons with all her insane, crazy antics and outrageous, inventive outfits! I was at Cabrini Monday night, saw her mom, held Page for a while, and walked away in tears.
She's breathing without any assistance, her eyes are partially open and she may just have that fight in her that will work miracles. Let's pray fierce to whoever it is that has more power than us mortals!
Page died this morning. I am glad that we had this week to honor her before her heart finally stopped beating. Page was a really great star for a lot of us in NYC and I am one among many who will miss her. [This message was edited by antony on 08-29-02 at 02:48 AM.]
This is so disturbing, an od? I will miss her alot! Even though I didn't know her personally, she always inspired me. I remember the first time I saw her was at love machine in 1990. I thought she was so New York and she just stuck out in the crowd. I never thought this thread would end in such a sad note. I'm happy I bought the video she had with her performances on it. I will miss you terribly page!
Lily put it aptly in her post- Page always said she defied classification- something it took me awhile to truly understand being the JC New Yorker, when I met her almost 9 years ago. She truly did defy classification and lived her life as she wanted- for the positive, negative, or indifferent- which on various levels really is an inspiration for us all...
Page and I didn't always have the smoothest of relations. She could be very difficult. I'm very glad however, that we straightened everything out these last couple of years and became friends again. I always loved seeing her in the park. I know it may seem wierd but I always thought she looked so great in nature. I still can't believe she's gone.
I'm praying for acceptance of Goddess's will. I guess grieving takes time. There will be a Memorial Service and I hope Linda and/or Antony will keep us informed. I had the good fortune to do a taped interview with Page and her former husband, Peter a couple years back, maybe 1999 or 2000. I interviewed them seperately and then together. In it I asked her how she identified and she gave a very surprising answer. If there's any interest I would be willing to lend out parts of the interview as...
Hey Josef Can I use that pic on Page's NEW YOR CITY GIRL page? Page's NYC GIRL page I did it. I hope it's OK. I love this picture of her. You rule as always JA. [This message was edited by daddy on 08-06-02 at 06:01 PM.]
Of course I went to "Anthology" last Saturday and of course no one was there and of course they all thought I was nuts and of course all of you who know me know that for me this par for the course... of course. Next time I'll look at the date before I go, not after.
From Linda Simpson: Here are details regarding Page's memorial. Saturday, September 7th. Starts promptly at 2:15pm Anthology Film Archive, Second Avenue and 2nd Street, second floor The event will include speakers and video footage of Page. All those who loved, admired, were inspired or intrigued by Page are invited to attend.
That's why we love our Daddy, the absent-minded professor. Anyhoo I'll probably go the Page memorial. Linda sent me that note also. I never knew her personally and was only introduced once, but I've always been intrigued and I'm definately a fan. See everyone there. [This message was edited by Luxury Lex on 09-02-02 at 06:22 PM.]
In February 2002 Flloyd, Ingrid and myself recorded our very first song as 3Puen (the 3 is silent - pronounced PYOON). Flloyd wrote the lyrics to "Page" and we'd like everyone to take a listen. The mp3 and artwork at available at: flloyd.com/page We miss you Page.
Daddy went last week but not this week? There was a suspicoius absents of Jackie people. Where was everyone? It was today and you were missed. It was great to see all the other people who crawled out from under rocks to be there.
Linda and company did an amazing job of celebrateing Page's life and work. I really feel like I just saw a brilliant documentary. We should try to do these tributes to people while they're still alive. t
Truely a celebration of all things Page. The slide show, Josef Astor's words, Page's mother's references to her as "my little girl," and Antony's version of "In My Little Cubicle" moved me enormously. Of course it is always a treat to see Linda Simpson in full drag in the afternoon. She did a great job in organizing the memorial. It struck me that most transsexuals strive for anonymity, and normality (and who can blame them), but Page was cut from a different cloth. She was, in her own...
