may his glamour shine above

Matthew Santos from 1g5g has passed away.

"It is with profound sadness that we share in the sudden passing of Matthew Santos. As a colleague and friend to MTV, Matthew was a generous, kind, and spirited individual of whom we will always hold wonderful memories. As part of the cast of 1 girl 5 gays, Matthew embodied a bold originality and fearless individuality so rarely seen, but so greatly appreciated. Through his honesty and candour, he bravely demonstrated the importance of living life on your own terms. Matthew shunned the ordinary, and because of that, became extraordinary. How very lucky we all are to have known him. Our deepest condolences go out to his family, friends and boyfriend Taurel."

no cause of death has been announced but i can't even imagine what the cast, his family, and his bf are feeling :(

I worked with him at Starbucks. An old coworker of mine who was close with him and his boyfriend said he died of "pneumonia".

why is pneumonia in quotations??!!?
is that supposed to be some sort of hint that he could have been hiv+?
rozzybox 15th-Feb-2014 06:05 pm (UTC)
His death was super sudden. It could have been anything but I have my doubts that it was pneumonia.
nouns 15th-Feb-2014 06:30 pm (UTC)
possibly, bc it's just not common for people to die from that, usually they have something else giving them a really low immune system

Yeah a few friends of mine knew him - but I didn't get the vibe that they wanted to tell anyone. Which is understandable - but yeah...I just got a bad feeling about it.

Someone on Twitter said it was suicide...

What the fuck?!!! I cant take this.... Not Santos. Sad day. Smh :(

OMG! WHAT?! I loved Santos...and his disgusting sheets!

Seriously, he was one of my 1g5g favs. RIP I hope they find a cause of death soon because this is really shocking.

i feel like his bf/close ones know but aren't prepared to reveal it...

ugh, i hate this. i loved santos!

spanishsaharaa 15th-Feb-2014 06:10 pm (UTC)
I didn't know him - but I saw him around T.O. more times than I can remember. And he was always quite nice when I was around him. A few friends on my FB went to the wake. I didn't ask how he died though. RIP :(
invisible_cunt 15th-Feb-2014 06:18 pm (UTC)
yeah it seems a bit odd that they're keeping mum on the cause of death which i understand in some way, but in another way it makes it all the more suspicious...
nouns 15th-Feb-2014 06:30 pm (UTC)
suspicious? wrong word, boo
runtothesun 15th-Feb-2014 06:11 pm (UTC)
Well he was addicted to glamour.

Super sad though, for real. He seemed like a nice dude.
ekrelly 15th-Feb-2014 06:11 pm (UTC)
A girl I went to HS with mentioned this on fb a few days ago (apparently she used to party with him? idk) but I didn't think it was THIS santos. :( RIP. He was one of my faves on 1g5g. Always so glamorous. <3
