Del was a founding member of the Alice B. Toklas Democratic Club and the Lyon-Martin Health Services, a primary healthcare program specifically designed for very low-income and uninsured women with HIV.

Some of the reaction on the feministblogosphere:
Feministe (“She also co-authored several books, one of which, Lesbian/Woman, was read outloud to me by my best friend in her bedroom when I was 13 and was trying to figure out what being queer was all about.”)
Shakesville (“Sigh… At least she got to marry her love before she passed.”)
