One of the first things I advocated for is that there are a number of people in the Latino community who don't dress as women but are women. You know?

I was bringing these issues to the forefront and people were realizing what was truly happening in the community. Because Proyecto ContraSIDA, you know, we were in a fantastic location: 16th and Mission was truly the Mecca of transsexualism and faggotry.

The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
