Marsha P Johnson and Sylvia Rivera will have a monument dedicated to them in New York City. Both Johnson and Rivera were prominent figures in the Stonewall uprising in 1969 with Rivera being the first to throw a bottle. The two also co-founded the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (STAR) – a group dedicated to helping homeless young drag queens, LGBTQ youth and trans women. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots which sparked the birth of the modern gay rights movement. The monument will be one of the first of its kind commemorating transgender people #marshapjohnson #sylviarivera #newyorkcity #monument #stonewallriots #stonewall #gay #lgbt #riots #activists #loveislove #transgender #STAR
