A few days ago we lost a trans woman named Jordan. She was a stand up comic from Denver, CO. She apparently was sick, but what seemed like no big deal turned into everything.
She was a real firebrand by all accounts. Nicest girl you'll ever meet but took shit from no one. Her comedy was on point too. She was genuinely funny AND smart and savvy. She has a comedy album out called Estrogentrification that may very well be required listening if we're friends.
I never met Jordan. I was always hoping she would perform in San Francisco and I could meet her and tell her how inspiring she is to me. All I can do now is offer my sincerest condolences to her family and friends.
Cheers to one of the greats. Rest in power Jordan. Thanks for the laughs.
PS Listen to her album. It's really good.
