Leonard Cohen, hugely prolific singer and songwriter whose work spanned close to 50 years, has passed away at the age of 82. Cohen’s label, Sony Music Canada, confirmed his death on the singer’s Facebook page, and his family, son and manager released statements regarding the icon’s death saying:

“It is with profound sorrow we report that legendary poet, songwriter and artist, Leonard Cohen has passed away,” the statement read.

“We have lost one of music’s most revered and prolific visionaries. A memorial will take place in Los Angeles at a later date. The family requests privacy during their time of grief. My father passed away peacefully at his home in Los Angeles with the knowledge that he had completed what he felt was one of his greatest records,” Cohen’s son Adam wrote in a statement to Rolling Stone. “He was writing up until his last moments with his unique brand of humour.”

“Unmatched in his creativity, insight and crippling candor, Leonard Cohen was a true visionary whose voice will be sorely missed,” his manager Robert Kory wrote in a statement. “I was blessed to call him a friend, and for me to serve that bold artistic spirit firsthand, was a privilege and great gift. He leaves behind a legacy of work that will bring insight, inspiration and healing for generations to come.”

A cause of death has not yet been released, but he was 82!

RIP, Leonard! Seeing you perform was one of the most-memorable and beautiful evenings we can recall!

Another gay icon has left us! Kim McGuire, the distinct actress that played HATCHET-FACE in John WatersCry-Baby alongside Johnny Depp, has passed away!

McGuire apparently found Waters and nabbed her role by responding to a personal ad in the newspaper only saying: “Wanted: Girl with a good body and an alarming face who is proud of it”.

John Waters once stated: “that face that she wears in the movie is certainly make-up; Kim has a very blank face in real life”. McGuire herself once quipped “When people see me after seeing that, they think I look really good.”

RIP, Kim! Thanks for making us laugh and for giving folks around the world the confidence to own their shit whether it’s hatchet, ratchet, both, or somewhere in between!

Transgender actress and LGBT activist Alexis Arquette passed away Sunday morning at age 47, surrounded by family. Alexis was born Robert Arquette and started acting at age 12. She went on to earn roles in the Bride of Chucky, Of Mice and Men, and played a Boy George impersonator in The Wedding Singer. Patricia Arquette, David Arquette and Rosanna Arquette were all at Alexis’ side when she passed. They posted these beautiful words about her passing yesterday:

“Our brother Robert, who became our brother Alexis, who became our sister Alexis, who became our brother Alexis, passed this morning September 11, at 12:32 am,” Richmond posted on Facebook. “He was surrounded by all of his brothers and sisters, one of his nieces and several other loved ones. We were playing music for him and he passed during David Bowie‘s Starman. As per his wishes, we cheered at the moment that he transitioned to another dimension.”

RIP Alexis! You’ll be missed! And we can’t think of a better way to enter the afterlife than knowing you’re about to meet Bowie there too!
