Film screening: Happy Birthday, Marsha!
August 22 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
Join us for a free screening of the short documentary Happy Birthday, Marsha! The film chronicles iconic transgender artist and activist, Marsha “Pay it No Mind” Johnson and her life in the hours before she ignited the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City. It will be followed by a panel discussion exploring the ways in which queer and transgender people of color have been erased from history and the challenges that they continue to face today.
Sponsored in part by a Humanities New York Action Grant with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
