July Muñoz Obituary, Death – The death of July Muz was completely unexpected. Although it is challenging to find the appropriate words, I did some writing. You’ll also find below details about a celebration of her life that will take place this coming Thursday night in San Francisco, as well as a link to a great obituary for July that was published in the SF Bay Times. I am aware that she had a profound impact on the lives of a great number of people, and I would like to do everything I can to ensure that this event, her life and the difference she made, as well as the scholarship that was established in her honor, are widely known.
stricken with profound melancholy over the passing of a longtime companion and friend. July! What an amazing experience. Your favorite woman is born in your favorite month. Fire-breathing, intellectually ferocious, and emotionally and physically warm. Leather coats that you would allow me to wear, a grin and a laugh that warmly greeted me into the house, etc. You’d tell them, “You have so much strength! You don’t have to put up with that piece of garbage! This was a message that many of us desperately needed to hear at this time.
You made a move, and the large males moved out of the path simultaneously.
My dear July, You made me feel so cool. You saw how savvy I am in the street. We could have a loud conversation with anybody we wanted to; just ignore their approaches. I remember that you were interested in what I studied, and that we would discuss late into the night in your home, which was filled to the brim with books, altars, photographs, funny gay magnets, pins, shoes, and love letters. It has been a very long time since I have routinely encountered you. The LGBT youth that we were in our early 30s is no longer with us.
