Thank You Marsha P. Johnson

Those of us celebrating Pride owe it largely to political activist, organizer, performer and transgender woman Marsha P. Johnson, one of the first drag queens to frequent the Stonewall Inn. During the uprising on June 28, 1969, she was among the first to fight back against the police. Hosted by InCahoots, Stonewall Fest is an art and music celebration that remembers even as it sashays forward—after all, there will be two stages.
