Remembering Fred Diener

The XXY community mourns the passing of Fred Diener an XXY trailblazer of San Diego, California, who died on the 23rd of October, aged sixty-five years. Long before KS&A (AXYS) Fred was a pioneer for the XXY community running a support group for Southern California and featured in several news articles of that era about living with XXY. With the emergence of KS&A and its strong Morman roots, Fred being an outwardly gay man found his support group was overlooked by KS&A as they set about promoting XXY as heteronormative, a practise they continue today even in the presence of mounting evidence that confirms otherwise.

The XXY Project salutes Fred for raising our flag of diversity.

May he rest in peace.
