Tribute to Del Martin
The GLBT community lost a pioneer on Wednesday with the death of lesbian activist Del Martin. I'm sure my politics are quite different than hers; nonetheless, the fact that Del & wife Phyllis Lyon, were together for nearly 60 years is an accomplishment worthy of respect. The top pic is a rainbow flag flying in the Castro district - note it is flying at half mast. The bottom pic is a makeshift memorial set up for her in the heart of the Castro.
