My piece made Narratively’s end of year top 10!

My piece on the first same-sex marriage in Colorado more than a hundred years ago made it to number 7 on Narratively’s list of the 10 most-read pieces of 2017 on their site! The story of Helen Hilsher and Anna Slifka is very close to my heart, and it’s great to know that so many people have learned about these two brave and boundary-crossing women. It’s so easy to think of the women of the past as having little to do with the desires that women today experience – to explore, to learn, to love whoever they want, and see and do everything they possibly can. We rarely hear those stories; they’re too often written out of history. It was a pleasure to write just one of them back in.
