"In the years after David’s death, Tom Rauffenbart sprinkled David’s ashes in places that had held meaning for him. He took some to the beach in St. John’s where they had their first sexy romantic vacation. He left ashes at the loft, sealed inside a wall. He sprinkled some in Paris, in New Orleans, in the Great Swamp of New Jersey, at Teotihuacan, and at what was left of the Christopher Street pier. Then in October 1996, he joined in ACT UP’s second "Ashes Action" in Washington, D.C. He got up to the fence and threw David onto the White House lawn."
