Thank you so much for this.
Mother Marsha P Johnson RIP
This is conclusive proof, that Marsha considered herself trans in the early 1970s, not just a gay male drag queen. Here she is in her own words:
"[Interviewer:] What about the term 'drag queen.' People in STAR prefer to use the term 'transvestite.' Can you explain the difference?
[Marsha:] A drag queen is one that usually goes to a ball, and that's the only time she gets dressed up. Transvestites live in drag. A transsexual spends most of her life in drag. I never come out of drag to go anywhere. Everywhere I go, I get all dressed up. A transvestite is still like a boy, very manly looking, a feminine boy. You wear drag here and there. When you're a transsexual, you have hormone treatments and you're on your way to a sex change, and you never come out of female clothes.
[Interviewer:] You'd be considered a pre-operative transsexual then? You don't know when you'd be able to go through the sex change?
[Marsha:] Oh, most likely this year. I'm planning to go to Sweden. I'm working very hard to go.
[Interviewer:] It's cheaper there than it is at Johns Hopkins?
[Marsha:] It's $300 for a change, but you've got to stay there a year."

It feels completely true that 'we' all killed Marsha P. Johnson.

We all are responsible and negligent of the killings of our human brothers and sisters. Not knowing or taking an active role is complaintency.

I just find the whole "People of Colour" no different to saying coloured folk. I'm sure that most races come in all sorts of colours.

Marsha p. Johnson by hearing or reading articles about her. It is proud to say that long live "LGBTQ+". She is the mother of each person. She deserve drag queen.

You mean. . .who killed Malcolm Michaels Jr.? Marsha "Pay it no mind" Johnson was his Drag Queen character.
This is interesting but idc
Probably no one. He was a schizophrenic that thought Neptune was his father and lives in the Hudson River. He was found dead in the place he was fixated on. More than likely he fell in throwing in his offerings to his father which he was well known to do.
