Marsha P Johnson

Marsha P. Johnson was an activist, a sex worker, a drag performer who was at the forefront of several pivotal moments in modern history. She established Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (STAR), one of the country’s first safe-spaces for transgender and homeless youth, and tirelessly advocated on behalf of sex workers, prisoners, and people with HIV/AIDS. She was a major player in the Stonewall uprising and was heavily involved in New York’s art scene, modelling for Andy Warhol. She remains a woman who is impossible to forget.
