Del Martin, co-founder of the Daughters of Bilitis and campaigner for LGBT rights, died yesterday. Her wife, Phyllis Lyon, survives her. They were one of the first same-sex couples to be married in San Francisco in both 2004 and 2008. They became lovers in 1952.
Having struggled for the rights of LGBT people for half a century, may she rest in the arms of the Goddess. Blessed be.
