    Biographical / Historical

    Nancy Tucker joined the Mattachine Society of Washington in 1967 while still in college, as part of her coming-out process. In 1969 she became one of the founding editors of what is now the Washington Blade, became prominent in gay/lesbian alcoholism recovery organizing, and finished out her gay-rights career as president of the Gay Women's Alternative of Washington, D.C. She moved from the Washington, D.C., area to live in San Francisco for 11 years, where she engaged in property-rights activism. She and her partner Lynne Menefee now reside in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where Nancy plays with her antique postcard collection and researches a book about the early postcard publishers of Albuquerque.
