Edie Windsor Comes in Third for Time’s Person of the Year

Edie Windsor, plaintiff in the U.S. Supreme Court case that overturned DOMA, came in third this year for Time’s “person of the year,” following Pope Francis and Edward Snowden. She was also a finalist in the public online poll. Windsor said:

“I am honored that Time chose me as one of the number 3 individuals in the top 5 nominees for  ‘Person of the Year,’ but I am just one person who was part of the extraordinary and on-going fight for marriage equality for all our families. There are thousands of people who helped us come this far and we still have a lot more work to do. The gay community is my ‘person of the year’ and I look forward to continuing to fight for equal rights and educate the public about our lives alongside my gay brothers and sisters and our allies.”
