LGBT, HIV/AIDS Advocate Paula Ettelbrick Dies

Paula Ettelbrick, a lawyer and longtime LGBT and HIV/AIDS advocate, died of ovarian cancer in New York City on October 7, according to a statement from the Stonewall Community Foundation, where she was most recently executive director. According to a statement from Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC), Ettelbrick criticized the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) in 2006 for its lack of HIV prevention funding for LGBT people globally. Throughout her career, Ettelbrick held roles at the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, the Empire State Pride Agenda and the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission.
