Del Martin

I previously blogged about how famous lesbian activists Del Martin and her partner of 55 years Phyllis Lyon were amongst the first to get married following the legalisation of marriage in California following the California Supreme Court decision. This wasn’t the first time, though- they got married in the first spurt in San Francisco, but that batch of weddings was outlawed.

Well now I am sad to say that Del Martin, 87, has died, last Wednesday in San Francisco. She will be sorely missed for the inspiration, courage, but above all humanity that she and Phyllis have shown over the years.
