Marsha P. Johnson was a gay rights activist famously involved in the 1969 Stonewall riots. She co-founded STAR (Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries) with close friend Sylvia Rivera, and became an AIDS activist in the late ‘80s/early 90s. Marsha was popular in the New York City arts and entertainment scene, working with Andy Warhol and performing drag shows with The Hot Peaches.
In 1992 Marsha’s body was discovered floating in the Hudson River. The death was initially ruled as suicide but has since been re-opened as a possible homicide.
