Phyllis and Del, 54 years and finally married

After spending a lifetime together, Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin were married last night by the sexiest mayor on the planet, Gavin Newsom.

It is unthinkable that anyone could say these two women who still, after all this time, obviously love each other, do not deserve the benefit of any other loving couple: to stand in front of family and friends and be married.

I think one of the tragedies of this amazing age is that because we are able to access nearly everything through our computers, we sometimes forget that there are human beings on the other end of the concepts we fight against. We apply tags and labels and disregard the fact that those tags and labels are being assigned to 3 dimensional human beings, all of whom have lives and worries and triumphs and joys….just like every other human being.

It’s easy to dismiss a concept. People do it all the time. But watching history taking place, and seeing the love between Phyllis and Del…I could only sit with tears in my eyes and celebrate the fact that these two very human women lived to see the day they could be married and have the love between them vindicated.
