A tribute to
Marsha P. Johnson
Marsha P. Johnson was one of the most prominent American gay liberation activists and self-identified drag queen. Renowned for her strong advocacy for gay rights, Johnson played a notable role in the Stonewall uprising of 1969.
Johnson was among the founding members of the Gay Liberation Front and co-established the radical activist group Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (S.T.A.R.) alongside her close friend Sylvia Rivera. She also held a prominent position in the gay and artistic circles of New York City, collaborating with Andy Warhol for modeling and participating in stage performances with the drag ensemble Hot Peaches. Often referred to as the "mayor of Christopher Street", Johnson gained this title due to her welcoming presence on the streets of Greenwich Village. Between 1987 and 1992, Johnson took on the role of an AIDS activist with ACT UP.
Marsha P. Johnson remains one of the most distinguished and admired advocates within the LGBTQ+ community.
