I don’t often make appeals like this here but for some reason, this story kind of hit me hard. Perhaps I can relate in some small way to the pressures and feelings that one in the adult entertainment profession can have put upon them, especially as a TS/TG entertainer. Jezebel Yum, whom I have never met personally, but admired from a fairly large body of work she has done on numerous Shemale porn sites, took her own life on Monday, October 18, 2010. I find it particularly tragic that at 24 years old, Jezebel felt that life on this planet had become unbearable enough to take that leap into the next…
The one thing that I find touching about this tragedy is the way some girls are choosing to help out Jezebel’s family during this trying time. Blue Moon Nights has hosted a regular ‘T-Party’ on Thursdays for some time now, and this Thursday was scheduled to be a big one, with Halloween happening over the weekend. Many of the featured Transsexual dancers have pledged to donate their tips and earnings from the night to help with the costs of Jezebel’s funeral. I think that’s just awesome as I think some of them have never even met this vivacious Shemale Starlet.
So, if you’re in the Los Angeles area, I’d really like to encourage you to drop by Blue Moon Nights, have a drink or two, tip the dancing girls, and know that your dollars are going to a good cause. Although I didn’t know Jezebel personally, the choice she made to take her life is one that I can relate to personally in those dark moments of thought. I wish Jezebel all the best wherever she is and peace and comfort to her family. To all the girls and organizers helping with this Thursday’s T-Party, I say, ‘BRAVO’. I wish the TS/TG Community had more selfless acts of kindness and perhaps tragedies like this could be avoided in the future.
