Episode Seventy-Six: Marsha, Sylvia and Stonewall
In 1992, the body of gay rights pioneer Marsha P Johnson was spotted in the Hudson River. The community took to the streets to protest the ruling of suicide.
But to discuss the unexplained death of Marsha, we had to rewind the clock to discuss Marsha's life, which meant discussing fellow activist Sylvia Rivera. And that meant discussing the events at the Stonewall Inn that kicked off a movement that continues today.
So much has changed since that day at Stonewall. But a lot hasn't. Join us as we unpack this and stay tuned to the end to hear the stories and thoughts of our friends Amanda, Eileen, Elizabeth, and JV.
