Maya Angelou dies at 86
Poet, author, and activist Maya Angelou has passed away at the age of 86. Among her accomplishments is her renowned autobiography, "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings."
A novel by GLAAD's Monica Trasandes was recently included in the Advocate's "20 Must-Read Books We Missed Last Year," calling it a "tender and languid look at love, loneliness, and transformation. Beautifully done."
