Babs Casbar Siperstein: Jersey activist takes care of business


personal profile

She’s a 68-year-old woman who loves senior discounts and spoiling her grandchildren. But you probably won’t find her playing canasta or mahjong with her cronies. Barbara “Babs” Casbar Siperstein is one of the Garden State’s most dedicated, high-profile LGBT activists.

You might wonder why in her golden years Babs is such a fierce advocate for equal rights. Perhaps she’s making up for lost time, after living a very different existence for the first 40 years of her life.
