Supreme Court brought joy to LGBT people across the nation when it legalized same-sex marriage.
Although they moved in together and had lived in domestic bliss since 1953, it wasn’t until 2004 that they were able to marry in California — a marriage that was later voided by the California Supreme Court.
Happily, Del and Phyllis did eventually say vows that stuck on June 16, 2008, just a few months before Dorothy died at the age of 87.
Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon were a cute lesbian couple before it was cool.
Back in 1950, the women met in San Francisco and found they had a lot in common: both were Berkeley grads, bother majored in journalism, and both were interested in political activism.
Then in 2009 when she became a mom with her wife Alex Sykes, she found her place.
Wanda met Alex Niedbalski on Fire Island, New York.
“Orange is the the New Black” has more than few cute lesbian couples on screen, but the show actually spawned a real-life, honest-to-God, leaving-my-husband-for-you lesbian relationship between Lauren Morelli (a writer for the show) and Samira Wiley (the actress who plays Poussey Washington).
Lauren’s journey to discover her sexuality, she said, is tied closely to her work writing for the show.
Though their schedules are tight, this cute lesbian couple always carves out time to spend together.
