    Hmmm. Interesting. Just this past Sunday I watched Trash with Joe Dallesandro from 1970. Nice period piece, gritty and atmospheric. An interesting time in history to have been alive, and to have seen and done the things Mead did.

    You must be tired, Taylor Mead. R.I.P.

    I wonder what Mr Mead thought (if he knew) of those who don’t believe there’s any connection between Gay folks and Transgender folk. He talks about Jackie Curtis with such fondness.

    I think Jackie was the most talented of all the Warhol crew. But being Gay and Transgender in the 1960s put limitations on how far he could go career wise.

    Well, Holly Woodlawn is still here, and her video interviews on Youtube are a joy to watch.

    Interesting that violence in the Village wasn’t acknowledged even then. He speaks of Holly Woodlawn and Warhol. It reminds me of my friend Lance Loud. That group were his idols. It was a moment in gay history. The only time I did drag straight guys flirted with me. Too convincing. It was fun.

    I actually met Taylor Meade about 8 years ago at a small club in Manhattan where he was doing a poetry reading. I went up to him after the performance and asked him to sign a book I had about the Warhol era – he autographed next to a picture of himself. He was very sweet. Before I exited the club I gave the bartender some money and told him that the next time Mr. Meade ordered a drink it was on me.
