    Re: Mad Dog – Such a strange and ignorant comment from you Mad Dog. Everyone deserves to be cared for regardless of who they are.

    Mad Dod, did you Parents ever teach you - if you can't say anything NICE then don't say anything at all - ….

    Re: Mad Dog – Yet, you're on this website… Reading about what you supposedly don't care for. Idiot.

    You ignorant close minded inbred redneck mad dog. Let me guess you slept with a tranny a few times and she told you not to reach around to the front. When you did once you realized it was a man you were on the back of?

    i just wonder what caused a heart attack in such a young person. not that it is any of our business but when a person has others that look up to them it important to know if it was due to something that could have been avoided. RIP

    he died of AIDS. heart failure is the technical cause. its annoying how theyre all trying to sweep the AIDS reason under the carpet. its important that people are aware that AIDS is still killing millions around the world. hiding it like this does not help deter unsafe sex in the gay community which is still out of control.

    Re: PHWOARR – According to reports it happened from a reaction to an epilepsy/panic attic medication that caused a heart failure. Yes AIDS is a killer but why does her death automatically mean it was involved? Because she's a gay man/drag queen? Her death should be mourned, not blamed.

    Im one of Saharas close friends, she helped me be comfortable in my skin, when i was first coming out as a gay man, how dare you insult a beautiful human being who has touched the lives of many, always remember karma is a bitch and you get what you put out into this world, one day when your loved one passes away i pray that you never have to read the things that i have read. May she rest in peace, <3

    Oh my God, I'm getting so sick of hearing this crap. For the last time, Sahara did not have AIDS. Let's use common sense here. Do you know what AIDS patients look like? They're emaciated, gaunt, almost skeleton like. They're bed-ridden and exhausted. My uncle died from AIDS in 1998 and I currently work in a hospital. I've seen many AIDS victims, and none of them look good. Sahara was performing in nightclubs just days before she passed, and she looked fantastic.
    I knew Sahara and I know for a fact that she did not have AIDS. Her heart failure was caused by something, but AIDS was not it.
