Dazed & Confused

In honour of Transgender Day of Rememberance, Petter Wallenberg's interview with the late Octavia St. Laurent from iconic documentary Paris is Burning is published in Dazed & Confused. It's never been published before. Petter Wallenberg explains: 
I had the pleasure of working with Octavia on our track "Be Somebody" - but sadly she passed away before the release. Just a couple of months before her passing, I spoke to her at her mother's home in upstate New York. I decided to interview her, and she agreed and spoke candidly about life, strength, being transgender and the legendary ball scene of New York. Little did I know it would be the last time I spoke to her. R.I.P Octavia St Laurent. Read it here:
