Del & Phyllis: A six-decade love story

Del & Phyllis interview on Out in the Bay

The most famous lesbian couple in LGBT history got married the first time around on Feb. 12, 2004, in San Francisco City Hall after being together for 51 years.  They had moved in together on Castro Street in 1953, on Valentine’s Day, which they considered their anniversary. This Valentine’s Day weekend, we honor pioneering activists Phyllis Lyon and the late Del Martin in this encore broadcast of Eric Jansen’s intimate 2006 interview with them at their kitchen table, when they shared their tales of San Francisco life and love for lesbians and gay men in the 1950s, ’60s and since. We also hear perspectives on love collected by queer youth training program outLoud Radio.
