Phyllis + Del: Six Decades of Love

Long-time lesbian activists Phyllis Lyon and the late Del Martin were together 55 years before they could legally wed.

On this Valentine's weekend, Out in the Bay honors one of San Francisco's favorite couples - pioneering civil rights activists Phyllis Lyon and the late Del Martin. Valentine's Day was their anniversary. They co-founded the nation's first lesbian political organization, the Daughters of Bilitis, in 1955. They were together more than 55 years before they could legally wed, as the first same-sex couple to marry in San Francisco City Hall in 2008. They had also been the first same-sex couple to wed in February 2004 when Mayor Gavin Newsom challenged state law. (He lost the first round, but eventually won). On this special edition of Out in the Bay, hear Del & Phyllis' love story, shared with producer Eric Jansen over their kitchen table in 2006, along with some of their favorite music and tales of life in San Francisco from 1950 to now. Also on this encore broadcast, outLoud Radio brings us perspectives on love from young, old and in-between.

San Francisco’s Proposition B takes its role in affordable housing debate

A model of the proposed 8 Washington Parks, Public Access and Housing District.
Liz Pfeffer

Once blighted and clogged with cars, the Embarcadero is now a promenade of upscale restaurants, farmers markets, and a walkable Bay Trail. As development all over San Francisco barrels forward, residents are being asked to decide what they envision for the future of the city’s frontage.

Tomorrow, San Francisco voters will cast ballots for or against a controversial luxury condo development across from Pier 3. The long-disputed 8 Washington project would bring multimillion-dollar housing to a 3.2-acre lot on the city’s waterfront.
