The Passing of a Civil Rights Hero

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008 | Giggles

One of my personal heros, Del Martin, passed away today at age 87… Del Martin along with her wife Phyllis Lyon are two of the longest heros of the GLTB Civil rights movement. If anyone doubts the longevity of Gay and Lesbian marriages they only need look at these two – they have been together for 55 years and were FINALLY allowed to marry in California on June 16th…

If you would like to read more about her here are a few good links:

I owe much of the freedom and happiness I enjoy today in no small part to these ladies!

Safe Travels! 🙂
