act of love and rebellion

Yesterday, county officials in San Francisco decided to ignore California law and began marrying same sex couples.

The first couple married was Phyllis Lyon, 79, and Del Martin, 83. (Thanks for the tip, Rebecca's pocket).

Long before Stonewall Inn riots, Lyon and Martin organized, published and spoke out on behalf of gay folk. They've been together for 50 years. More power to them.
