Aw Fuck

John Lyon Burnside III 1916 - 2008

John Burnside, inventor of the teleidoscope, Gay rights activist, and co-founder of the Radical Faeries, passed away on September 14th due to complications from brain cancer. Burnside was the lifelong companion and partner of Harry Hay (1912 - 2002), another co-founder of the Radical Faeries, and a seminal figure within the Gay rights movement.

More at the Wild Hunt.

The simple fact that there were RadFay, esp here in DC, has made my life so much richer.
