What the struggle is really about

In some very sad news, Del Martin, wife of Phyllis Lyon, passed away this morning. Phyllis and Del were in the vanguard of a burgeoning gays right community in the 1950s when they formed the Daughters of Bilitis, a lesbian rights group. They were finally able to marry, this year in California, and did so in June. Rest in peace Del and many condolences to Phyllis.
