“In 1991 was on the cover of the Argus Leader, causing a huge ruckus that lead to many people canceling their subscriptions and numerous hateful letters to the editor. Going public, he gave a pretty face and introduced the public to what had been a controversial and underground activity and often hidden gay community.”

“Having a staple like this in our community is truly undervalued. I’m so lucky to have gotten to know him over the years.”
