Amber Hollibaugh Career
Amber Hollibaugh, in her capacity as a Senior Activist Fellow, initiated the inception of Queer Survival Economies (QSE). This pioneering project was designed to confront the complex entanglement of issues such as sexuality, poverty, homelessness, labor rights, and the criminalization of survival. Hollibaugh’s dedication to this cause was an extension of her longstanding collaboration with BCRW (Barnard Center for Research on Women). Her involvement was also a testament to her impactful endeavors as an activist, sex worker, writer, and former Executive Director of Queers for Economic Justice.
In 2015, Hollibaugh orchestrated a public conference in partnership with the Murphy Institute (CUNY). The event served as a platform for organizers, activists, scholars, and community members to engage in critical dialogue regarding the often neglected and imperceptible issues of economic justice.
