The Fiddlehead mourns the loss of Richard (RM) Vaughan and are grateful for his words, which we’ve been privileged to publish over the years. We’re thinking of the way in which both his words and his person helped pave the way for other queer writers. In tribute, we share this excerpt from “Mr. Love Ruined My Life,” from our 2020 summer issue. We hope this brings some light to his friends and family.
