Aleshia Brevard, 1937-2017

Saddened to hear of Aleshia Brevard‘s death after a long illness. A true trailblazer in a time when being outed as a trans actor was a career-ender. About ten years ago, she sent me a very nice note that said in part:
As I see it, Andrea, our community is seriously in need of some good, positive PR. Your offer to “put the word out” is greatly appreciated – that’s what we’re seeking. The journey, as all sisters know, begins with the first step. Thanks again, and best wishes for your continued success,
