Frances Goldin is 95 years old, and for the last 35 years, she’s been bringing the same sign to New York Pride.

“I Adore my Lesbian Daughters KEEP THEM SAFE,” the sign reads.

Goldin is a longtime housing activist after whom an affordable housing development for seniors in New York is named. Today, she’s here with her daughter, Reeni Goldin, and Reeni’s wife, Marge Burns.

“It’s been 50 years (since Stonewall) and in this climate of hate we need to have a force of solidarity,” Reeni Goldin says.

“And happiness,” her wife adds. “Happiness that we can be here.”
