Thỉnh thoảng, ta lại được bảo ban tìm về những điều cũ xưa. Để được trẻ lại. Để được già đi. Để được hân hoan những nỗi vui từ quá khứ. Để được thâm trầm khi một thoáng buồn vương.
Khu cư xá lặng yên. Nhữmg đứa trẻ lớn lên. Người già không trẻ lại.
Ta lại muốn sống sao cho thỏa phần người.

Thirty years ago today, San Francisco lost its greatest disco diva, Sylvester (1947–1988).
Born in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Watts and christened Sylvester James Jr., the future star grew up singing gospel. In 1972, at the age of 22, he moved to San Francisco to fully live his life as a gay man; he soon joined the genderfuck drag troupe The Cockettes, then went on to launch his recording career in 1973.
Sylvester finally hit it big with his 1978 disco album Step II, which included "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" and "Dance (Disco Heat)," both of which made the charts in the United States and Europe. He went on to record four albums in other styles with Fantasy Records, then another four with Megatone Records that became dance-floor classics.
Sylvester was a beloved and colorful personality who called the Castro neighborhood his home, leading many to dub him not only the "Queen of Disco" but also the "Queen of the Castro." He performed at the Castro Street Fair, took part in the Castro Dog Show and was often seen enjoying time with his friends in neighborhood establishments.
Sylvester died of AIDS in his home in the Castro on December 16, 1988. He was 41 years old.
