Carole Morton

Carole Morton was born in Brooklyn, NY. She moved around a lot as a kid and attended High School in Long Island, graduating in 1963. After graduation, Morton got married and had a child. During the early years of her marriage, she began exploring her sexuality, which led to her discovery of the New York branch of the DOB around 1970. In her interview, Morton credits DOB as her support system, giving her confidence as a lesbian woman. Morton moved on from DOB to become an activist for lesbian mothers rights. She was an active speaker and helped found “Dykes and Tykes.”
