    Evelyn Hooker was a long-term friend and colleague at UCLA. We met frequently at her home and appeared on national television together.

    She was delighted when in 1972 I published a paper challenging psychiatry to delist homosexuality as a mental disorder.

    I was grateful to Evelyn when she praised my 1987 book, “The ‘Sissy Boy Syndrome’ and the Development of Homosexuality”, published by Yale,
    with a dust jacket endorsement: “Dr Green makes a very important and unique contribution…the study is a heroic and pioneering undertaking and students of human behavior are greatly in Dr Green’s debt.”

    To me, the only disappointment in her otherwise monumental career was that she never wrapped up her extensive clinical research collected over so many years into a final package. She demurred: “I am still collecting data.”

    Evelyn was a giant heroine.
