A watercolour illustration of Marsha P. Johnson (1945-1992) a transgender activist who participated in the Stonewall Uprising of 1969 and fought for the equal rights of those less heard by mainstream gay rights movement alongside Sylvia Rivera.
Marsha P. Johnson was noted by Sylvia to "be like a mother" to her. A notable drag queen and trans woman, she adopted the full name "Marsha P. Johnson" and the P stood for "Pay It No Mind" after she graduated highschool.
During the time Marsha was alive, the term transgender was not commonly in use yet. Historians and former friends often refer to her as a trans woman, when speaking about her past.
Marsha was a part of a growing community of LGBTQ+ youth who sought acceptance in the 1950's and 1960's. She was a sex worker to get by and the work was incredibly dangerous. Marsha was often without a permanent home, too.
She loved to express herself through her appearance with lavish outfits and thrift store finds, or gifts from friends.
Her and Sylvia Rivera started STAR; Street Transvestite Activist Revolutionaries. This group united together in a safe place, the STAR House, to discuss the fight for their rights. The House also sheltered transgender youth who would otherwise be homeless and living on the street. STAR was an incredibly important part of their New York City community.
