UPDATE: Other news outlets have confirmed that E. Lynn Harris has died. Word from some sources is that he died of cardiac arrest.

A news report posted about 10:30 this morning on Arkansas Sports 360.com says that black gay author E. Lynn Harris has died.

I have not yet seen the report confirmed elsewhere.

The report describes Harris, 54, as a “cheerleading sponsor/coach for Arkansas and a passionate Razorbacks fan.” It says he was on a book tour of the West Coast.

Harris authored 11 books, mostly about the experience of being black and gay. His most recent book, “Basketball Jones,” was about a closeted gay NBA player and his lover.
