Marsha P. Johnson was on the front lines of New York City’s gay liberation movement for over two decades. We honor her legacy for 2SLGBTQIA+ History Month. She’s remembered as a prominent activist for transgender rights and oppressive policing, as well as her tireless advocacy on behalf of sex workers, prisoners, and people with HIV/AIDS.
As part of 2SLGBTQIA+ History Month, we're celebrating people who have fought for more inclusive and equitable treatment. Today we feature Gilbert Baker — founder of the pride flag and a pivotal voice in defining the modern LGBT rights movement. Read their words, feel their message, and hold the feeling close.
