Marsha P. Johnson:
Marsha “Pay it no Mind” Johnson was always smiling, rocking her flower crown, and fighting tirelessly for LGBTQ+ rights. She imagined the world she wanted for Black queer people and created it to the best of her ability.
She co-founded the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries, which provided shelter to young transgender individuals in need.
Our revolutions and forms of resistance all originated from leaders with clear understandings that Black liberation is possible, but only if WE shape it.
Our imaginations are the blueprint but our action steps will determine which direction towards liberation we’ll move.
