Marsha P. Johnson

“The Mayor of Christopher Street” & LGBT Activist at Stonewall

This week, Sara brings us the story of Marsha P. Johnson! Marsha self identified as a gay queen, but she’s a Broad in our book! Marsha was allegedly at the forefront of the Stonewall riot that started the LGBT revolution, helped organize the first Pride Parade, and founded STAR house, a home for abandoned or homeless LGBT children and young adults to keep them off the streets (which helped inspire the FX show “Pose”!).
