RIP Edith Windsor, who passed away on Tuesday, September 12th. Edith was a LGBT activist and plaintiff in the historic United States vs. Windsor case, which overturned a section of the Defense of Marriage Act in 2013. This ruling directly paved the way for the legalization of same-sex marriage two years later.
