David Remembers Sister Alexis Arquette Via Twitter
It was just a month earlier that David Arquette remembered his late sister, Alexis Arquette, who passed away from A.I.D.S. on September 11 of this year, as reported by International Business Times. Ms. Arquette was a transgender activist and an actor, known for roles in Pulp Fiction (1994) and The Wedding Singer (1998), and was remembered upon her passing by siblings David, Rosanna, Richmond, and Patricia Arquette.
David shared a picture of Alexis Arquette with his Twitter followers, captioning the image with lines from a Rolling Stones song, expressing the idea that the song reminded David of his late sibling.
“She’s a Rainbow. She’s like a rainbow,” Arquette tweeted, followed by the lyrics. “She comes in colors. Everywhere she combs her hair. She’s like a rainbow.”
In a statement released by the Arquette family, Alexis was remembered and her life celebrated, as the news of her passing was shared with friends and fans.
“She fiercely lived her reality in a world where it is dangerous to be a trans person — a world largely unready to accept differences among human beings, and where there is still the ugliness of violence and hostility towards people that we may not understand.”
Now, just two months later, David Arquette is finding new hope with his family, as he prepares to celebrate the arrival of another Arquette. There’s no word on what David and Christina have in mind, as far as names for their son, but it doesn’t seem unlikely that the new boy might be named Alex Arquette.
