Just a little blog about me and mine.

Thanks, Del Martin August 28, 2008

Filed under: the gays — Katie @ 4:07 pm

Del Martin, 87, died Wednesday.  She and her partner of 55 years, Phyllis Lyon, were the first couple to be legally married in California this year.  In 1955 she and Lyon were among the founders of The Daughers of Bilitis, a pioneering lesbian-rights organization. 

I’ve made an attempt to learn about gay and lesbian history, and about the amazing men and women who made the world a better place to live.  I’m not a brave person, and certainly wouldn’t have been in 1955, so thanks Del Martin.
