Two Things Worth Reading Re: Sally Ride's Posthumous Coming Out

Posted By on Tue, Jul 24, 2012 at 1:00 PM

In case you missed it, Sally Ride's obituary mentioned that she was survived by "Tam O’Shaughnessy, her partner of 27 years," declaring publicly for the first time that the incredibly private Ride was gay. Here are two items from the internet regarding that declaration.

From Buzzfeed:

Asked about those who would have opposed legal recognition of her sister's relationship, Bear Ride bluntly replied, "Who cares about them, really? There are those who are stubbornly ignorant, and if they want to continue in that, God bless them, but probably best not to talk to my family."
