Remembering Gary Floyd

Failing health or not, this is still a massive shock.
Out Queerpunk from the very beginning. Flamboyant, fierce; and a deeply spiritual being who did so much to lift so many hearts and spirits.
A singer's singer, truly. Punk, Southern Rock grunge, and especially the Blues. It all came from the blues, and he could touch and penetrate like no other.
He and Ricky Williams (Sleepers) were the best and most gifted voices the Bay Area punk scene ever produced. No one else comes close.
And yeh, he was the sassiest queen I ever met in my life.
Fly high and free wherever you are,
