In a sad turn of events, recently married and longtime civil rights advocate, Del Martin, died yesterday.  On June 16th of this year, after 55 years together, Del and her partner, Phyllis Lyon, were finally, legally wed.  I’m thrilled they got the chance to do so after so many decades of discrimination and bigotry, and that their nuptials were celebrated before Ms. Martin passed away.  I only hope the rest of the country soon follows the lead of California and Massachusettes and allows all of its people to marry.

Rest in peace, Del.
