Famed Transgender Performer Stands Up for Israel

Former Andy Warhol protégé Jayne County frequently posts pro-Israel messages, as commentary on anti-Semitism and criticism of Israeli policy, on social media.

Jayne County has never been afraid to express an opinion. She was the first transgender performer to get up on a rock stage and declare: “I am what I am, and I don’t give a damn.” These days, the former Andy Warhol protégé is standing up for the right of Israel to defend itself, posting her support a dozen times a day on Facebook.
