Blogger, Writer and Activist Taylor Siluwe has Passed Away

We lost a warrior in LGBT world. Taylor Siluwe passed away from lung cancer this past weekend.

Taylor was a talented author with many literary works from magazines to his own ventures like Dancing With the Devil and Cheesy Porn… and other Fairy Tales.

His blog, SGL Cafe was/is a staple in the Black LGBT community. He was one of the first bloggers to reach out to me and encourage many of us to write and tell the stories that needed to be told.

Taylor is an inspiration to many of us and he will be greatly missed.

I miss him a lot. We spoke on several occasions through IM. He was like my big cyber brother.
He always showed love to me. Rest In Peace.

I'm not familiar with him or his work, but I hate to see such a young person die. I'm sorry that's terrible news. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

We are related biologically and related to the earth chemically. We are made of Sun stuff. Rest in peace.
