Marsha P. Johnson, transgender gay rights activist (1944 – 1992).
Marsha “P.” Johnson fought back against the police during the Stonewall Rebellion. She stated the “P” stood for “pay it no mind.” Marsha was photographed by Warhol and was part of the Hot Peaches Review. Marsha co-founded STAR (Street Transvestite/Transgender Action Revolutionaries) with Sylvia Rivera, to help aid, feed and shelter for queer/trans homeless and runaways. STAR advocated trans inclusion in the mainstream gay movement.
Marsha P. Johnson was an American, born in Elizabeth, New Jersey, as Malcolm Michaels, Jr. and was a transgender gay rights activist and popular figure in New York City’s gay and art scene from the 1960s to the 1990s.
**trigger warning violence in the next paragraph**
Marsha was likely murdered — her body was found floating in the Hudson River shortly after the 1992 Pride March — though the police declined to investigate and ruled her death suicide.
Marsha P. Johnson remains a legendary figure in the foundation of the modern fight for queer equality.
