It's with a heavy heart that Frontiers reports on the loss of one of our cover models, Quentin Elias. Elias was discovered to have passed away in his New York home earlier this week from a severe heart attack.
Elias was a Renaissance man, having worked as a model, actor, adult film star and singer in his short 33 years. At one point he was the lead singer of French boy band Alliage.
Elias—who was French and of Algerian descent—worked with many photographers (and fashion designers: Armani, Gaultier) through the years, including famed LGBT photog Michael Stokes, whose image graced the cover of our Jan. 23, 2013, "Escape from L.A." issue.
