RIP Del Martin

Dorothy L. (Del) Martin, has passed away at the age of 87. Del, along with her partner of 55 years, Phyllis Lyon, was one of the founders of the modern lesbian movement and a lifelong advocate for personal dignity and civil liberties (go read about her achievements).  She leaves behind a legacy of a stronger, prouder lesbian nation that will never go back into the closet.

We’ve lost a hero.

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
