#28daysofblacklove #whatafreedomfighter Marsha “Pay It No Mind” Johnson with Sylvia Rae Rivera || Marsha was a trans LGBTQ activist from Elizabeth, NJ who was well known in the drag scene. She, alongside Sylvia, founded STAR: Street Transvestite* Action Revolutionaries in 1970. (*= this is now an antiquated term that we will no longer use— language shifts) STAR was a trans rights organization and fought for the inclusion of trans folk under the umbrella of gay Rights. Marsha was also involved with the Gay Liberation Front, an organization that fought for protection and advocacy for gay and trans folk. On top of already being an amazing individual, she was involved in the Stonewall Riots in 1969. Marsha was one of the first to clash with the police because she was dope and fearless as fuck. Marsha P. Johnson was definitely a freedom fight. Although her life ended tragically, her legacy will definitely live on.
