Prominent South Florida Writer Passes Away

Written by Richard Gary

'I remember when I told my mom I was gay, she said, 'You can't be, you're not even good looking!'

- Paul Harris, 2002

Paul Harris, a South Florida gay freelance journalist who had written for more than one hundred publications worldwide, has passed away.

The one-time publisher of the South Florida weekly newspaper, the Independent, and the editor of the world's largest LGBT publications guide, Harris was 53 years old. Once known as the 'Queer Press Guide,' the creative genesis for the project evolved out of his own process of saving addresses for him to be able to sell his articles. When he learned that the guide, which sold on Amazon.com, as well as in local stores, had been nominated for a Lambda Literary Award, he joked that it is as hilarious as nominating the phone book.

A playwright and actor, who dressed impeccably, Harris was often called upon locally to serve as the Master of Ceremonies for community events. Writing was his passion, however, and his articles were picked up by LGBT and mainstream publications across the nation for decades, covering topics from alcoholism to depression to racism within the gay and lesbian community.
