      After Hujar's image was used by the Gay Liberation Front, it was co-opted and repurposed by Su Negrin. She combined the photograph with a mandala bearing the words "Let Go," (designed by Suzanne Bevier). The resulting poster in "red-orange and purple on soft gold" was offered for sale through the pages of Come Out! for one dollar (volume 1, issue 7 Dec-Jan 1970, p. 2). rare
