“Pioneering lesbian rights activist Del Martin, who married her lifelong partner in June on the first day that same-sex couples [in California] gained that right, has died. She was 87….. Martin died at a San Francisco hospital Wednesday morning, two weeks after a broken arm exacerbated her existing health problems.” She will be greatly missed. [AP]
