Today, national freedom-to-marry group Marriage Equality USA released the second installment in a series of intimate interviews with marriage hero and MEUSA volunteer Edie Windsor.

In part two, Edie tells her friend and MEUSA colleague Cathy Marino-Thomas about how difficult gay life was before the Stonewall Riots -- even in New York City! -- and talks about her persistent pursuit of Thea Spyer, the woman who would become her wife.

Watch Edie discuss pre-Stonewall life and the beginning of her now-legendary love story:
