Help us celebrate Trans Awareness Week 2017 by learning about and reflecting on the life of Marsha P Johnson. Marsha was a transgender woman of color who made an undeniable impact on LGBTQ and American history.
A pivotal actress in the events at Stonewall, she was a founding member of the Gay Liberation Front, S.T.A.R., and a key voice in ACT UP. Hailed as the “Saint of Christopher Street”, Marsha was one of the “gay family” mothers who took care of LGTBQ street kids and homeless trans adults. She spent her life raising her voice on the issues that affected her and her family the most: trans and gay rights, trans rights within the LGBTQ movement, HIV/AIDS, and homelessness.
In partnership with the National Civil Rights Museum, join us for a screening of the documentary The Death and Life of Marsha P Johnson and a panel discussion and audience Q & A after the film.
