GPG News Link – A Sad Post

Del Martin died today in San Francisco. She was 87 years old.

The work and life of this remarkable woman, along with her wife, Phyllis Lyon, made it possible for many of us to be who we are and where we are.

Please, take a moment and read about her life here.

Martin and Lyon were plaintiffs in the case that lead to this year’s California State Supreme Court decision that allows same-sex marriage in California. On June 16, they were the first same-sex couple to marry in California under the new law.

Tonight, Phyllis Lyon may be California’s first legal same-sex widow, and my thoughts are with her.
