Phyllis and Del

"Breaking ground is nothing new in the nearly six-decade relationship of Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon.

The lesbian couple were the first to participate in a 2004 challenge of California laws against same-sex marriage, exchanging wedding vows only to see the ceremony voided later."

55 years they had to wait. Social Justice is important to me, and this is an important step. The story of these two ladies and their struggle to be treated fairly and their victory in the end made me weepy. 1 hankie
