As gay people in the USA prepare to celebrate Pride this summer, they are also taking time to remember Storme DeLarverie, an LGBT rights pioneer whose life is an inspiration to us all.

According to the New York Times:

Storme DeLarverie, a singer, cross-dresser and bouncer who may or may not have thrown the first punch at the 1969 uprising at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, but who was indisputably one of the first and most assertive members of the modern gay rights movement, died on Saturday in Brooklyn. She was 93.
