Letter to
c/o District 6 Supervisor Jane Kim San Francisco Board of Supervisors
Dear San Francisco Board of Supervisors,
We, the undersigned, petition you to commemorate the history and current struggles of the San Francisco transgender community with a memorial to Vicki Marlane, transgender performer and artist. She died on July 5, 2011 after performing for over 60 years at venues such as the Frolic Room, 181 Club, and most recently, with the Hot Boxxx Girls at Aunt Charlie's Lounge. She is remembered as "the girl with the liquid spine.” Vicki Marlane represented the trans community in a vibrant and visible way. That is how we want her to be remembered.

We ask you to add Vicki Marlane's name to the street signs on the 100 block of Turk St., between Taylor and Jones. This block contains Aunt Charlie's Lounge and the former site of Compton's Cafeteria, where trans women and men resisted a police raid and stood firm for their human rights in August 1966. We support a visible testament to Vicki Marlane and to the contributions of the trans community to San Francisco. Please add Vicki Marlane's name to the street signs in that historic block. We support a visible testament to Vicki Marlane and to the contributions of the trans community to San Francisco.
