Marge Nelson

As we were going to press we heard that our dear friend, Marge Nelson, had died. Marge was a wonderful activist and educator. After marrying young and having three kids, she went back to college and became one of the first women’s
studies professors in the country. In the 1970s, she went to North Carolina to work on the campaign to free political prisoner Joan Little. She was an active member of Old Lesbians Organizing for Change, and helped to establish a lesbian and gay community in a senior residence in San Francisco (most of the lesbians who lived there were her ex-lovers).

We will have more about Marge next issue. We loved you, Marge.
