Today I visited his Now Voyager travel agency storefront in the Castro, wrote him a note of affection and love, slipped it into his mailbox slot then asked neighbors where he was.
Peter apparently passed away yesterday from internal bleeding brought on by a tumor that couldn't be stanched. I was told he didn't live long after getting to the hospital.
The news hit me hard, losing another queer poz brother. Been thinking about the good times when my life-path crossed Peter's, his battles with his various demons, losing his friend and business partner Jonathan Klein to suicide, and saluting him for keeping the travel agency going.
