Description: Corinne ‘Martie’ Mackey was an African-American lesbian activist and writer. She helped found LAGADU (Lesbians and Gays of African Descent United) in 1989, in response to frustrations that the non-white community was not being adequately represented in LGBT activism. She worked with the San Diego LGBT Center, the Human Dignity Ordinance Task Force, and was a volunteer instructor at the local police academy. This interview about aging was taken in 1991, a year before her death by cancer at age 42.
