Sean was very active here in my community with Cascaide Aids Project before moving to DC with his husband Micheal. I worked with them both at numeroud CAP functions. He was a wonderful, funny, caring man with a heart as big as you can imagine. I forgot he was on Real world and was surprised to see this on TMZ, then I remembered with a bitter sweet smile. RIP Sean, you will be missed.

I have no idea who any of these people are. Again, please create a gay.tmz.com for the fairy stories so that you guys can "go nuts" with all the fairies we've never heard of and don't want to know about.
