In Honor of Sally Ride and Her Longtime Partner

You might have heard that astronaut (and lesbian heroine) Sally Ride died on Monday. Sally Ride was the first woman in space for those of you who weren't alive in the 80s.

What you might not know is that her partner for over 25 years, Dr. Tam E. O'Shaughnessy, was a fascinating woman in her own right. 

You can read all about Dr. O'Shaughnessy in a new article from the International Business Times. 

A we mourn the loss of this American hero, let us take a second to honor her partner as well… and all those partners out there who stand by their loved ones with undying support.

As anyone who has been in a long term relationship can tell you, that ongoing support and unconditional love is a huge part of being successful.

  1. Does not matter, young, old, man or woman, child...Sally made us dream, plan, work and become more than we thought we could. Not only a genuine teacher and role model, but a gifted woman we will sorely miss. R.I.P. Sally.
