This is just so fucking beautiful. It's still hitting me how profound it really is. Shapeshifting, liminality, sexuality...extending acceptance and permission to many through his example...and here he's done it with death, too. There is not one of us who is not going to die, some way, somehow. He didn't have to show us his experience in this way, and could have instead left us with the shallow comfort of only remembering him the way he was. But he did better than that. What an amazing gift.
