Pay It No Mind: Marsha P. Johnson, documentary queer film
Marsha P. Johnson was a revolutionary trans activist, Stonewall instigator, Andy Warhol model, drag queen, prostitute, starving actress, and Saint, as well as a downtown NYC fixture from the 1960’s through her too-soon demise in 1992. Johnson persevered through a life embodied by her middle initial P, which stood for “Pay It No Mind.”

Glimpses of the 3rd Christopher Street Liberation Day March

This footage is from a great film, A Very Natural Thing released in 1974. The march footage is authentic and was filmed documentary-style to capture the spirit of the 70s gay rights movement and to bookend the story of the protagonist.

Pride has definitely changed since, and been skewed a great deal by the co-opting nature of capitalism and commercial mainstreaming of some elements of queer culture.

ACT UP! FIGHT BACK!

Equality is our agenda.
