"What Could We Have Been If We Hadn't Put All That Energy Into Being Hidden?"

Edith Windsor, the 84-year-old plaintiff who paved the way for the Supreme Court's DOMA ruling this past summer, was on the shortlist for TIME's annual Human We Put On The December Cover Issue (the Pope won). She talked quite a bit on tape about her 40-plus years with her spouse, Thea Spyer, who died in 2009, and it's really nice. (She also shared a lot of old photos of the two of them. KNOCKOUTS.)

Oh my god the weeping.


@noReally It is just so moving. Tears are streaming. Thank you Emma for reminding me how lucky I am to be married to the person I love.

This was beautiful, thank you.

I am in a long-lasting (27 years!) same-sex relationship and every year it gets easier, thanks to people like Edith and Thea. At Thanksgiving I gave thanks for my husband and the fact that I can finally have one, at least in New York. My New Year's resolution is to spend the rest of my life with him. It's strange to feel so grateful to two women whom I've never met, one of whom I never will, at least in this life.


They're the adorablest. I watched their documentary and cried so hard.


Entirely wonderful. Thank you.


I have really strong feelings about Edith being the face of the same sex marriage fight (they are not necessarily positive). This seems nice though.


I make $82h while I'm traveling the world. Last week I worked by my laptop in Rome, Monti Carlo and finally Paris…This week I'm back in the USA. All I do are easy tasks from this one cool site. check it out, www.Best96.com
