A very sad story indeed.

The linked article notes that he stopped taking his meds.

Sad story.  RIP.

Goddamned meth.

What a sad story, and what a loss to the community.

To have done so very much to insure medication was available to us, and to then stop taking it. I will never pretend to know the man's demons and his struggles. But we couldn't afford to lose him. Our nest generation of activists is missing.

tednlou2:
Very sad, indeed.  I had just read about his work not that long ago.  We've seen deaths of fairly young, high profile, poz people recently.  The causes of some of their deaths were not discussed, leading many to speculate whether they died, even being on meds and having their virus suppressed. 

An awful situation, especially here at the holidays.  My condolences to his family and everyone who knew him. 

LiveWithIt:
That's sad I recently read about a gay porn star that died around 40 also.

It's very sad and tragic. Throughout my 27 years of living with HIV, those that were dealing with issues of drug abuse ( and HIV)- ( primarily meth) or alcoholism, never made it.  They all died too young, and senselessly.
 


RIP Spencer Cox
