Feminist Icon and American Writer, Jill Johnston, Passed Away Sunday  
Lesbian-feminist icon dies unnoticed. But not by us.

Excerpt:

Feisty, irreverent, difficult, incomprehensible, surreal, as one critic put it, she was "part Gertrude Stein, part E. E. Cummings, with a dash of Jack Kerouac thrown for good measure."

It’s midnight the day after her death, and I still can’t find an obituary anywhere but on her own website, where her lover, Ingrid, writes: “May her liberated spirit guide us on our paths.”
