Edie Windsor on "Her Love Affair With the Gay Community"
Today, in honor of the three-year anniversary of marriage equality in her home state of New York, Marriage Equality USA is proud to release the final part of Edie Windsor: In Her Own Words, a multi-part series of interviews with LGBTQ icon and longtime MEUSA member Edie Windsor.

Today also celebrates the three-year anniversary of marriage equality in Edie's home state of New York

"When Stonewall happened, I was really this ignorant middle class lady who said 'I don't see why I have to be identified with those queens.' -- I mean those queens changed my life. And I saw them and I loved what I saw. " ~ Edie Windsor

In this last segment Edie talks about trying to protect her family through Thea's declining health, how she first met with attorney Robbie Kaplan, and how she continued to break the rules (not surprisingly) even on the eve of her Supreme Court victory.

"I was moved by Edie's final thoughts on her perspective of her journey and I'm in awe of her legacy to the LGBTQ community!" commented MEUSA Executive Director Brian Silva.

Each of these videos, the final being released today, explores Edie's life through her own words as she relates her story to her friend and MEUSA colleague, Cathy Marino-Thomas. From how she met Thea and got to know the LGBTQ world during their early days together, through their struggle to get married, and eventually to the DOMA case and the Supreme Court of the United States.
