  • Gryphon was an extraordinary person, not just a drag queen, though he elevated that title to new levels. The clothing he made, which was his source of income, is still around and holding up marvelously. For me, Gryphon was a loving companion and friend, He and I danced together in many venues, but never finished the dance. Whenever we met, it was always as if the music was still playing and we needed to continue to dance. His voice was at times big and unmistakable and it was also soft and tender.
