CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — A bisexual advocate was killed on March 12 as she rode her bicycle on a street.
The Boston Globe reported that a dump truck struck and killed Marcia Diehl, 65, as she rode her bicycle along Putnam Avenue in Cambridge after leaving a nearby Whole Foods Market.
Diehl co-founded the Boston Bisexual Women’s Network. The Boston Globe reported the well-known singer and songwriter was also a volunteer at a local LGBT theater company to which she donated money.
“The Boston bisexual community is saddened at the news of the loss of one of our long-time members,” said the Boston Bisexual Women’s Network in a statement posted to its Tumblr page. “She will be greatly missed within our community, and we are thankful for the humor, creativity, and compassion she shared with us for many years.”
