IN MEMORY OF
September 6, 1947 – December 16, 1988
Sylvester, a flamboyant, cross-dressing, multi-genre recording artist, reigned disco in the 1970s before reverting to his gospel and soul roots in the 1980s. Yet, he always lived out loud, even when the world sought to silence and disregard him. Now, thirty-three years after his death, we remember him, his legacy, and what a star he would have been today had he lived.
