**on their younger days


“I remember sharing a bedroom with you when we were growing up. You moved your bed into the closet, and when you came out of the closet, literally and figuratively, it was like a butterfly transformation.”

**On how Alexis inspires him


“You were so ahead of your time in everything you did, and you’ve inspired me in so many ways – in fashion, and also creatively and artistically. You had this weird way of getting along with everyone — gangsters and runaways and club kids and punk rockers. They all loved you and accepted you.”

**on his never-ending love for Alexis


“I just hope you know that I’m proud of you, and that I miss you I love you. I wish you had stayed around longer but I’m so grateful that I had you in my life.”



David ends the letter by telling Alexis, “We’re connected forever, and I know I’ll see you in my dreams.” The Alexis Project at the Violence Intervention Program supports programs for the LGBTQ+ community.
