Time Marches On

The Times catches up with drag king and Stonewall legend Storme DeLarverie, 89, whose absence from this year's Gay Pride Parade was perhaps not felt as much as it should have been.

“The young gays and lesbians today have never heard of her,” said Lisa Cannistraci, a longtime friend of Ms. DeLarverie’s who is the owner of the lesbian bar Henrietta Hudson, where Ms. DeLarverie worked as a bouncer. “And most of our activists are young. They’re in their 20s and early 30s. The community that’s familiar with her is dwindling.”
