First openly gay person elected to Congress dies
Former Mass. Rep. Gerry Studds had a blood clot in his lung, husband says
BOSTON - Former U.S. Rep. Gerry Studds, the first openly gay person elected to Congress, died early Saturday at Boston Medical Center, several days after he collapsed while walking his dog, his husband said.

Studds fell unconscious Oct. 3 because of what doctors later determined was a blood clot in his lung, Dean Hara said.

Studds regained consciousness, remained in the hospital, and seemed to be improving. He was scheduled to be transferred to a rehabilitation center, but his condition deteriorated Friday and he died at about 1:30 a.m. Saturday, Hara said.

Very Sad.

My thoughts go out to his family and those whose lives he touched.

I love how they actually printed "husband" for his partner, I think that is what validated his achievements tremendously.

Keep your head up honey, I know it's rough and REALLY bad right now, but all you can do is the best you can with what you've got. That's really all any of us can do. What is happening to you is not right and not fair by any stretch, and I certainly cannot understand it and would fix it all if I could, but I have to believe that somewhere things are going to turn around eventually. As the saying goes, it can't rain all the time.
