Born on August 24, 1945, in Elizabeth, New Jersey, Marsha was named Malcolm Michaels Jr. After graduating high school in 1963, she moved to New York Citys Greenwich Village, a burgeoning cultural hub for LGBTQ+ people, where she legally changed her name to Marsha P. Johnson. Her middle initialP.allegedly stood for her response to those who questioned her gender: Pay It No Mind.
Marsha, who is a beloved and charismatic fixture in the LGBTQ+ community, is credited as one of the key leaders of the 1969 Stonewall uprising widely regarded as a critical turning point for the international LGBTQ+ rights movement. The following year, she founded the Street Transvestite (now Transgender) Action Revolutionaries (STAR) with fellow transgender activist Sylvia Rivera. STAR was the first organization in the US to be led by a trans woman of color and was the first to open North Americas first shelter for LGBTQ+ youth.
In 2019, New York City announced plans to erect statues of Johnson and Rivera in Greenwich Village, which will be one of the worlds first monuments in honor of transgender people.

Psychotic street walker. Even Wikipedia doesnt airbrush this one much https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marsha_P._Johnson
I particularly have always liked the purple people.
But I do believe that they should try to curb their cannibalistic tendencies.
Honor is the active word here. Exploit, utilize, hype, sure. Honor? Nah.
Hooray for the weirdos.
The more perverted, phony, and depraved, the better.
If it was Muslim and crippled it would at the apex of victim pyramid.
Honor them for what? Being perverts that you wouldn’t want around your kids? Disgusting.
Put her on the three dollar bill.
If anything needs to be honored, it’s ACTIONS, not states of being.
I dated a black Trans woman once. But then she traded it in for a yellow Pontiac Firebird.
Isn’t that sweet.
Google “celebrates” a sad soul who was raped as a child (the usual Sodomite male recruitment schtick), wore dresses, suffered from serious mental illness, and crusaded for perversion and sick behaviors, and he’s being canonized by our sick and depraved culture and evil politicians.
This country needs a God-sized enema.
Children are next. Or, actually they are the end goal.
There is no honor in homosexuality, a mental illness.
