With this advertisement on the back panel of the current issue of the beloved indie avant-garde homo sheet BUTT. The rest of the text reads:
An up-and-coming Mexico city-based fashion designer, Quetzal was known as much for his one-of-a-kind sense of style as he was for his mesmerizing persona. Photographed here on Calle Reforma [sic] in Mexico City, doing what he did best -- just being himself. We know that he would have loved to be in BUTT magazine. He will be well-remembered.
With love and respect, American Apparel
Recent coverage of Quetzal's passing in local media: In issue 2 of Revista 192, friends of Quetzal, including Marvin Duran, Ana Karla Escobar, Carlos Temores, and Sheily Jimenez, wrote personal memorials to Quetzi. Also, in December the magazine Chilango published a rather salacious piece detailing Quetzal's death and drinking problems.
He is still so missed.
