  • Was part of the chorus (including Tom Smothers, Timothy Leary, Norman Mailer, and the local Hare Krishna chapter) who sang on 1969's "Give Peace A Chance" with John Lennon and Yoko Ono during their "bed-in" in Montreal. Spent time later with Lennon and Ono when they moved to New York, and were involved with radicals Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin; they tended to side with Ginsberg when he opposed Hoffman and Rubin's wilder suggestions.
  • Frequently worked with William S. Burroughs.
  • Friend of the Zen Roshi, Philip Whalen.
  • Appears as "Carlo Marx", "Alvah Goldbook", "Irwin Garden" and other names, in friend Jack Kerouac's novels. Kerouac also gave Ginsberg's poem "Howl" its title, after writing a critique of the unfinished work, in a letter that began "I received your howl."
  • Public readings of Ginsberg's classic "Howl" became an event, before and after the First Amendment controversies surrounding the work. When one heckler doubted Ginsberg's commitment to "going naked in the world", Ginsberg answered him by disrobing onstage.
  • Was admired by Bob Dylan and Donovan; socialized with Dylan occasionally in New York.

  • In 1965, Ginsberg was deported from Cuba for publicly protesting against Cuba's anti-marijuana stance and its homophobic social polices that results in many homosexuals being jailed. He also outraged Fidel Castro and his cadre of "Fidelistas" by allegedly making the remark that 'Ernesto Che Guevara' was "cute." The Cubans deported him to Czechoslovakia, where one week after being named the King of May Day parade, the Czech communist government labeled Ginsberg an "immoral menace" and deported him. Playright and future Czech President Václav Havel credits Ginsberg with being an important figure inspiring their desire for freedom.
  • In 1954, Ginsberg met his life partner Peter Orlovsky in San Francisco. Orlovsky, who was then 21, remained with Ginsberg until his death 43 years later. They both shared an interest in Tibetan Buddhism, and Orlovsky later himself developed into a published poet.
