"[Gerry] helped Americans understand that they really aren't homophobic, they just thought they were supposed to be." -- Barney Frank at the Gerry Studds memorial service. Here, via Towleroad.

Recall, Dean Hara, Studds's partner, like every other surviving partner in a same-sex long-term relationship, doesn't get survivors benefits from the Federal government, not even Studds's pension. At least some of us have that through our employers! Ugh.
