This one-of-a-kind record is being auctioned to support Trans Justice Funding Project @transjusticefp
- a Black, community-led funding initiative to support grassroots trans justice groups run by and for trans folx. Let me explain...
The record above was Adonis' own inscribed copy of @frankieknucklesofficial
"It's A Cold World" / "Bad Boy" #traxrecords
TX151 1987. Please note the correct white paper-sleeve with cut-out as #larrysherman
recycled them for #trax
12"s. Included is the 2014 @nytimes
obituary for Frankie. The record was bought from Adonis on 08.27.2011 for $175. It plays like a new Trax record from '87. In other words, lovely. 🙂
In 2017, @transjusticefp
granted $2500 to a trans-led 501(c)(3) organization I was co-director and treasurer of. In 2018, Jacksonville, Florida, was the transgender murder capital of the United States. All the victims were Black. That grant helped fund vital program services in my former city, but Black trans folx nationwide need our help now more than ever.
Bids start @ $175 (DM) and end 07:59 EDT (7:59 A.M.), 12:59 GMT on Monday, 8 June. Shipping is $5 USPS Media Mail within the US. DM me for international. The record is a unique piece that's new to the market; plus, "Bad Boy" on wax is deadly. ❤️
