Robin Tyler: Long Beach Pride Edition Cover

This is RLn's Long Beach Pride edition, with civil rights activist Robin Tyler. She and her wife Diane Olsen were the first gay couple to marry in California while it was briefly legal, prior to the passage of Prop 8, and also helped to organize the 1993 LGBT March on Washington. A couple years ago, when I was volunteering at L.A. Pride, I had the privilege of driving Robin and Diane through the parade and talking with them. It was fun doing this cover as a tribute.

(**Disclaimer** If you click on the image and read the full edition of Random Lengths News, you may notice the official paper position endorses Trutanich. I do not agree with that endorsement. I do not support Trutanich. Mike Feuer is the best choice for L.A. City Attorney.)
