She attended San Fernando Valley State College (now California State University, Northridge) and was also an active member of the Daughters of Bilitis. The original purpose of the Daughters of Bilitis (founded in 1955) was to counteract the isolation experienced by lesbians, although the organization later focused on educating lesbians about their rights and on lobbying efforts. Prosin died in 2002.
