“History isn’t something you look back at and say it was inevitable” : Life and Times of Marsha P Johnson

Marsha P Johnson

Marsha P. Johnson 1944-1992

…it happens because people make decisions that are sometimes very impulsive and of the moment, but those moments are cumulative realities…

The quote is from the documentary “Pay it No Mind: The Life and Times of Marsha P. Johnson” who was a revolutionary trans-activist, Stonewall-instigator, and in many ways a co-creator of many of the freedoms that people who are lesbian, gay, and bisexual enjoy today.

In our time, history is still being made for people who are transgender. I’ll post on that in my review of 2014 Capital Transpride.

In the meantime, enjoy. And say thanks.
