I really hope it wasn't suicide, only because I wouldn't want to think he was unhappy with himself.

A guy can be a fiance, not a fiancee.

I am still so sad about Sahara dying! My heart is broken for her family and for Manila especially! Sahara was just too young to go :( Thanks for covering this Enty, as the drag community is heartbroken with this news, so it is nice to see non-drag media covering it. RIP Sahara!

Would you any of you still calling her beautiful had Sahara been born a woman?

So sad. On Towleroad it just said the cause was heart failure...Maybe she had a congenital heart problem. Rest in Peace, Sahara...
