Rest in Power: Amber Hollibaugh 


Amber Hollibaugh, 77, activist, organizer, author (“My Dangerous Desires: A Queer Girl Dreaming Her Way Home”), self-educated leading public intellectual in the LGBTQ, feminist, sexual liberation, and economic justice movements, died suddenly of complications of diabetes in her home in Brooklyn, New York on October 20, 2023. She is survived by her life partner, award-winning novelist Jenifer Levin and stepsons Mak Levin and Van De Laurier.

Amber’s legacy is an integral part of the history of the modern LGBTQ+ and feminist movements. Her contributions were always visionary, as she worked at the intersections of sexual and economic inequality, LGBTQ and women’s health disparities. Her legacy and long-term impact in progressive movements is inestimable, and her loss will be widely and deeply mourned throughout queer communities, and beyond.

Her funeral was held in NYC on Sunday, October 29.  A memorial service, open to the friends, family and community is being planning in coming weeks.
