Em­bat­tled At­lanta YouthPride di­rec­tor dead at 52

GA Voice - - News Briefs -

Ter­ence McPhaul, the em­bat­tled ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of YouthPride, once the only or­ga­ni­za­tion serv­ing LGBT youth in At­lanta, is dead at 52, ac­cord­ing to a re­port by the In­di­anapo­lis Star news­pa­per.

McPhaul passed away at St. Vin­cent Hos­pi­tal in In­di­anapo­lis on Nov. 16 and was laid to rest on Nov. 25, ac­cord­ing to re­ports. No cause of death was listed in the obit­u­ary and due to the Health In­sur­ance Porta­bil­ity and Ac­count­abil­ity Act (HIPAA) law, the hos­pi­tal could not release any in­for­ma­tion. The Mar­ion County, Ind. coroner’s of­fice had no record of McPhaul’s death, which is com­mon in cases where the death is not sus­pi­cious. When reached on Dec. 2, the Robert D. Loose Fu­neral Homes & Cre­ma­tory did con­firm that it han­dled his ser­vice and that he was buried on Nov. 25.

McPhaul joined YouthPride as co-ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor in 2009 be­fore be­com­ing the sole ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor in Jan­uary 2010. A se­ries of con­tro­ver­sial episodes fol­lowed and were cov­ered by Ge­or­gia Voice. Archived sto­ries of McPhaul’s le­gal trou­bles can be read on our web­site.
