RIP: E. Lynn Harris

I'm very saddened to report that one of my favorite authors, E. Lynn Harris, passed away on Thursday night while on a business trip to LA. He was truly an inspiration to the Black Gay community and I've read almost every book he's written.

I remember back in 1999, I was fresh out the closet and I read "Invisible Life" for the first time. And I cried like a little baby because it was the first time that I related to something that was being written. I was hooked and was playing catch up and reading the other books he had written as part of the series.

You will be missed, Mr. Harris, but your writing will live on forever.
