Ferd died this morning (at 7 minutes before 7am on the 7th day of the 7th month of 07). He was with his dearest friends and comrades and he went without any pain whatsoever, and very quickly.
There is going to be an impromptu vigil on the corner of Santa Monica Blvd. and San Vicente (in West Hollywood) tomorrow (Sunday the 8th) around 7:30pm. Please come to show your respect for Ferd, and to remind folks that people still do die of AIDS. I don’t have too many details, as there really aren’t any yet. I think it’s going to be a very “whatever happens, happens” sort of thing. So please circulate this today and tomorrow.
