Chloe Dzubilo on
the August 2004 POZ cover

Transgender artist, HIV activist and three-time POZ cover model Chloe Dzubilo died in 2011, just five days after an art show she co-curated called TransEuphoria closed. But her art and advocacy continue to inspire—just ask Justin Vivian Bond, Buzz Slutzky, Jeffery Green, Jeanne Vaccaro and T De Long. They participated in a panel discussion on Dzubilo held in New York City at Cooper Union along with Visual AIDS as part of the Bring Your Own Body exhibition on transgender artists and archives. As Visual AIDS writes in its online bio accompanying a gallery of Dzubilo’s artwork: “Since her diagnosis, Chloe advocated for civil rights, adequate health care and dignity for people living with HIV/AIDS, transgender people and drug users.”
