Edie Windsor Reacts to the DOMA Ruling: 'I Wanna Go To Stonewall Right Now' - PHOTO


The New Yorker reports on the moment Edie Windsor learned of the DOMA ruling:

Everyone at the apartment of Roberta Kaplan, the lawyer who argued Edith Windsor’s successful challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act, exploded in screams and sobs when the ruling came down. Kaplan called her mother and said, “Total victory, Mom: it couldn’t be better.” Windsor said, “I wanna go to Stonewall right now!” Then she called a friend and said, “Please get married right away!”

  7. She is a treasure. She's the embodiment of grace, tenacity, and cool, and as a movement, we couldn't ask for a better icon.
