Another reason to grieve (and to read Hopkins): Paula Ettelbrick is dead. She was a fierce and important LGBT advocate, working in the movement for her entire adulthood, in just about every capacity, including Lambda Legal, the Empire State Pride Agenda, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission, and the Stonewall Community Foundation. I didn't know her personally, although I debated her in print -- we disagreed -- but I deeply admired her dedication and feel the loss keenly. More here.
