-The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson-
This documentary uses never-before-seen footage and rediscovered interviews in a search for the truth behind the mysterious 1992 death of black transgender activist and Stonewall veteran Marsha P. Johnson.
Filmmakers re-examine the 1992 death of transgender legend Marsha P. Johnson, who was found floating in the Hudson River. Originally ruled a suicide, many in the community believe she was murdered.
Afterwards, we welcome transgender leaders and allies for a conversation on gender identity and expression and the efforts to increase visibility, build power in the transgender community, shift public opinion, and change public policy. We hope to discuss different types of transgender leadership, the impact of transgender erasure in historical narratives, and the range of transgender identities including gender fluid, genderqueer, agender and other non-binary identities.
The panel will be moderated by Jenn Emmerich, a specialist in gender identity and LGBTQA issues.
