I cried, in a good way though. It's so beautiful to know that they found each other and hung on against the odds. So sorry to hear of Connie Kurtz' passing, my heart goes out to her widow. I'm so grateful to them for everything (and thank you to the crew also of course).

Connie Kurtz passed away on May 27th. This world famous lesbian acivist would be honored by your watching this film of her life with Ruthie and their world changing activism everywhere they went. She was one of my closest pals on the planet. Lucky me.
