Jill Johnston with Dick Cavett in 1973
   1  2  

by Charlie Finch

Jill Johnston, who died yesteday at 81, was the very first writer in our era to write as an open lesbian. She was part of a cohort of writers at the Village Voice, beginning in the 1960s, that made that paper the only real read in town and still influences writers (at least middle-aged writers like me) today.
