Lyon-Martin House

United States of America
Project Resources

Located in the Noe Valley neighborhood of San Francisco, The Lyon-Martin House is the former home of pioneering lesbian activists Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon. Beginning in the 1950s, the home served as a community and meeting space for the first lesbian civil rights organization, Daughters of Bilitis, and was central to the couple's lifelong activism and partnership. For decades, their home transcended both their private and public lives, serving as both a safe space for queer communities and a meeting place for political action. Today, the home remains a touchstone for celebrating LGBTQ+ history and igniting ongoing activism in the fight for equality.
