Michael Triplett, President of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA), died on January 17, 2013 after a courageous battle with cancer. An attorney as well as journalist, Triplett was assistant managing editor at Bloomberg-BNA, where he used his legal background to report on tax and labor policy.

A post at the NLGJA blog reports that Triplett had been a member of the organization's leadership team for several years, first as a Washington, D.C. chapter board member and president and then as a national board member and vice president for print before assuming the presidency in 2012.

The post also says that Triplett's "quiet demeanor masked a steely resolve and an uncanny ability to push our organization forward. Michael quickly became someone who could be relied on both to provide sage advice as well as the time and energy to help us accomplish our goals."

Triplett is survived by his partner Jack Squier, as well as his mother and sister and her family and other relatives.

The video below, from 2008, tells the truth about the NLGJA
