Gay Atlanta author tweets his brush with cancer

OK, we can breathe again. Prominent black gay Atlanta blogger Darian Aaron took his Twitter fans on a roller coaster of a ride Monday with an emotional telling of his flirtation with thyroid cancer.

Spoiler alert: He’s fine.

Honey, you scared us. Please don’t do that again.
