Gay Activist is sad to record the passing of Mark Thompson, the author and former senior editor of The Advocate, who died on Friday evening from natural causes.
Thompson, 63, was raised in Northern California and lived in San Francisco.
Thompson’s husband, Malcolm Boyd, an Episcopal priest and author, was one of the Freedom Riders during the African-American Civil Rights Movement. Mr Boyd died 18 months ago.
Gay Activist sends condolences to friends, family and colleagues.
