Come, I will make the continent indissoluble,
I will make the most splendid race the sun ever shone upon,
I will make divine magnetic lands,
With the love of comrades,
With the life-long love of comrades.
I will plant companionship thick as trees along all the rivers of America,
and along the shores of the great lakes, and all over the prairies,
I will make inseparable cities with their arms about each other's necks,
By the love of comrades,
By the manly love of comrades.
For you these from me, O Democracy, to serve you ma femme!
For you, for you I am trilling these songs.
To accompany the article, “Miss Tony Stands Alone” on the life of the legendary club vocalist Miss Tony featured in this week’s “Queer Issue,” the Baltimore City Paper reached out to experimental club producer and Miss Tony fan Schwarz to create a mix of his favorite Tony tracks and Tony tributes. Along with Tony’s classics and a few rarities (including the nearly forgotten “Bitch Track II - Yes!”) there are Schwarz-produced tracks from rappers Abdu Ali and DDm.

Comments like “Non-notable local (Baltimore) drag queen and non-notable local radio personality” and “You’d need to make a really good argument that a local drag queen is notable” infuriate me. Read that City Paper article and tell me Miss Tony wasn’t notable. Newspapers don’t write articles about non-notable people more than a decade after their death.
Wikipedia needs to stop erasing queer people of color.
