The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson

In honor of pride month and with respect to the current landscape, we’ve dedicated all of today’s episode to the documentary The Death and Life of Marsha P Johnson. Marsha was a queer woman of color, a staple of queer New York, and a famed veteran of the Stonewall Riots, the demonstrations that birthed the modern gay rights movement. Marsha was also the victim of an unsolved homicide, in a justice system that routinely devalues the lives of queer women of color. The documentary looks into the circumstances of her death, and the legacy of her life.
