Goin' to the chapel...

Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin, women who are honest-to-god living legends, got married (again) today. Legally.

They were two of the first names I came across when I first started reading about gay history in the 20th century. They founded the "Daughters of Billitis," who, along with the Mattachine Society, are a big part of why you can have a pride parade today.

If it mentions the 50s and 60s, and it mentions lesbians, Del and Phyllis were there... and they're still side by side. (What do you get the women who have everything?)

This makes me smile. Congratulations.

(a tip 'o the nib to QueerCincinnati for posting that the hitchin' finally happened!)
