Late in life he was active in Dying with Canadian Right to die activist group. Although in poor health, he was not terminally ill, but advocated that he should have right to die on grounds that his life was complete and he no longer had anything new he wanted to accomplish or achieve. During this era, he also published his autobiography, Love's Gay Fool, as free document on his own website.
