'1 Girl 5 Gays' Star Matthew Santos Dead At 28-Years-Old
It is with profound sadness that we share in the sudden passing of Matthew Santos. As a colleague and friend to MTV, Matthew was a generous, kind, and spirited individual of whom we will always hold wonderful memories. As part of the cast of 1 girl 5 gays, Matthew embodied a bold originality and fearless individuality so rarely seen, but so greatly appreciated. Through his honesty and candour, he bravely demonstrated the importance of living life on your own terms. Matthew shunned the ordinary, and because of that, became extraordinary. How very lucky we all are to have known him. Our deepest condolences go out to his family, friends and boyfriend Taurel.
Santos passed away on Feb. 8. A funeral mass was held on Valentine's Day in Toronto. His cause of death has not been announced.
So sad and so sudden. We're sending our condolences to his friends and family.
