Self-portrait in blue dress, New York City, 1985

"This is a picture of me in the ’80s at a friend’s after a small house party. The dress was designed for me by my roommate. These were the days of the night life. Proceeds from the sale of this print will benefit VOCAL-NY (Voices Of Community Activists & Leaders), P.A.I.N. (Prescription Addiction Intervention Now), and Aperture. P.A.I.N is my activist group fighting the Sackler family, whose pharmaceutical company, Purdue Pharma, developed and pushed OxyContin, igniting the Opioid Epidemic. We expose the Sacklers’ toxic philanthropy through direct action and court intervention, and we address the overdose crisis by advocating for Harm Reduction. We’re proud to collaborate with VOCAL-NY, a Black-led membership organization and one of the most influential activist groups on the ground. They organize low-income New Yorkers across the state to end the drug war, homelessness, mass incarceration, and HIV/AIDS, while also providing direct serv ices to people who use drugs. Together, we fight to end the drug war and uplift the movement for Black lives. #AllBlackLivesMatter.” https://aperture.org/shop/prints/nan-goldin-benefit-print
