"Giving y'all what I don't ever posture myself as an expert. But I'm just saying specifically here, this is not my field of study even though my work has been by these practices. But I'm saying that, you know, I just wanted us to talk about this here as we think about international women's day. We ought to be thinking about the ways in which we can amplify the complexity in the full humanity of black women who have been historically excluded from that conversation. And I'm excited to share this black feminism resource list that I've put together. It's going to be available on the game grown Facebook page. Can I add to your list? Absolutely. And because I was going to say that this is not an exhaustive list. This is just a start. And I'm sure that I want to put things. I want to put disclosure documentary on Netflix on that. Absolutely. And our mother's gardens, which was actually which was actually inspired by Alice Walker's essay in our mother's garden and then later the book. But there are tons of tons of resources here. And like I said, I was very intentional on including, you know, black feminism as it relates to Latina women, Afro Latina women. Trans women, all of these, you know, I try to develop a range of resources because that's really what that's really what black women is, it's all about fully embracing all that we are and really being the purple in the sea of lavender in the sea of love. I love that. I've been doing a C purple. No, 'cause it says women is to feminist as purple is to lavender. So women is the purple. And I think that's so true, right? Because you're right, because that's the larger, that's the larger. There is no lavender without purple. Yeah. And so it's about fully, it's about having a much deeper outlook and perspective as it relates to the interests of women, all women, and acknowledging that black women are a part of that. Central to that. I'm about to make a new flag. I'm about to make a new flight. It's going to be all these hues of purple nigga. Okay. It's going to be everybody, all the different intersections. We're going to have some maroons. We're going to have some royal purples in this. I love it. There's so much on here. I put crystal jeans video on when she did the Marsha P Marsha P Johnson story for a drunk history that actually wait, I have to tell you your knees, I told XD, your niece had to do a black history project, not a woman's history, a black history project. One, an activist, everybody had to choose an activist to do a presentation. And I asked her, I said, who you want to do your presentation on? And when I tell you what that would be, she was like, Marsha P Johnson. Yes. And honestly. All right. We love it. It was all because of our visit to the park where we went to the Marsha P Johnson park. And we were reading over the different little conversations and she that was so ingrained in her. When they came to and she was, she did her the project on Marsha P Johnson. I thought that was really dope. I loved that. I wanted her slides was in the P stands for paid, no mind..

"Over the past month we've been remembering the lives of some of the people who have died from COVID-19 Jack Dowling was one of them He was 89 years old Jeffrey Solomon a playwright and a director based in Los Angeles was a longtime friend of dowlings There was no wasted life or wasted time with Jack Dowling was a painter writer and supporter of the LGBTQ community He had a summer home on fire island in New York When I was 22 in the summer of 1989 I really wanted to live out on fire island Jeffrey Solomon says fire island looked like a safe place for the gay community somewhere he could write his first play So he posted signs offering to clean and cook in exchange for somewhere to stay I would say it was false advertising I just really wanted to be out there And I only got one call and it was from Jack And his partner Wally Or they gave Solomon a room to stay in but quickly discovered that his cleaning and cooking left a lot to be desired I think Wally wanted be gone Because you know I was just taking off space But Jack was profoundly moved by the fact that every day I went to the beach and I wrote all day long this play and he persuaded Wiley to let me stay And that was the beginning of a 32 year long friendship To be able to have a friend like Jack who was many decades older who came out in the 1950s Was just extraordinary Jack Dowling also supported his communities outside his home He became involved in sage and organization dedicated to helping LGBTQ elders and left a big gift in his will Here's Michael Adams their CEO He was very thoughtful and left his home to sage He hoped that would honor the memory of his friend the trans activist Marsha P Johnson Adam says the two met at the Chelsea piers in the 1970s That was a spot in New York City where queer people hung out Marsha P Johnson was.

"Probably don't see it as a priority. Even though like i said marsha p johnson is one of the core group of people who is responsible for queer liberation in this country. It's an it's a such an easy way that a city can say to their artists like value. What you're making and to the people we value your identity. It's so easy. And they don't fucking do it and they could do it. I mean commissioner one hundred hundred fucking statues from local artists about people who are underrepresented. It's not fucking hard. So the sculptor jesse pelota is his name Said that this statute designed to be temporary and they are still breathing. Down the next of the city to complete the planned monument for both marcia johnson and sylvia rivera It would be nice if we could add pressure to that. It took so much campaigning to get statues of two real women in central park. It was like years of being pleased. Put two women in there And finally that happened after. The only women in there were mother. Goose and allison wonderland who are not real. so really phenomenal job to jesse pelada to erlich and to every person who pitched in to do this and put this in there because it should be in there there are. There is a monument in there. Now that i think his name was george. Segal was the artist of two women in two minutes of that Sort of an abstract sculpture of two women and holding hands the two men holding hands and stuff which is really nice at the went up a long time ago but it would be nice to actually honor a real person who led deaths. Because this.

"So queer activists decided to put up a bust of marsha p johnson in the christopher park after waiting for a few years for it to be officially put in By win the city said that that was a okay so we talk about marshall johnson a lot we have given and so have you listeners to the people who participated in that we gave twenty five thousand dollars for the marsha p johnson institute which is run by black trans women and also supports black trans women and it's an organization that i still give to monthly so those of you don't know marsha johnson and you probably do know at this point if you're listening to this. She was incredibly. Instrumental was in the core group of people at the nine hundred sixty nine stonewall uprising and beyond that thought her entire life for the rights of the lgbt plus community she also founded star. Which was the or co-founded star. Which was the street transgender action revolutionaries which was dedicated to helping homeless youth. She founded that with co founder. Sylvia rivera who we've also profiled on this show but anyway it was announced in twenty nineteen that marcia johnson and her co founder would be honored with the monument and new york. Are you okay and then what happened. Well she's fucking date hispanic happens. But also i don't know i know means i like the. Pms should have delayed it for a few months but also it's like how is that stopping anyone for making a bomb used. You fucking take your business account your business. Banking whatever new york city uses you. Transfer the money to the artis account and then they sit in there fucking warehouse and they make the bust and then he put it outside just private district private distant ceremony to erect it. And you're done and you're done. I just think. I think people make excuses for covert. It's like i just know there's things you can still. So the project was announced by. She built nyc which we've also discussed because they're the ones who are really trying to erect more historical statues of women in new york city mother. Goose yes right. There's mother goose and allison wonderland and that's it but truly even after the progress they've made which i think was like a susan b anthony and elizabeth katie stand. I think are now in central park. There is still hundred fifty male historical statues and only six female historical statues. Some marsha p johnson was going to be added to that list along by the way with the other one that was supposed to be built. That still hasn't been built is one of shirley chisholm that was supposed to be in brooklyn the first black female. Us house first representative black female representative and To the us congress and also was the first african american candidate to run for president. United states in a major party she was ran as a democrat for the president united states and was the first woman to run for the democratic. Party's presidential position so her statue has been erected yet either and that was supposed to go up last year so so far. Ucf dame it's two black women who were supposed to have statues erected of them in the last few years. That haven't been which is truly ashamed. But on monday last monday. I should say it was marsha. Johnson's birthday would have been her seventy fifth and so a group of activists did it themselves and put up a someone. I designed a bus for her on. I'll get to the artist name in a second and i. It's her face. it's a bunch of her face with a flower crown. Because you know she loved flowers all these pictures bring flowers that are live so the flowers are some of the words that people can come and change out the flowers that they want. They can add flowers to her crown of this and taking pictures with her and stuff which is really nice. So it's like a living statue a little bit and something that you can always add to so writer activist and speaker. Eli erlich shared photos of the bust on twitter and wrote happy birthday marsha early this morning a group of friends and i put this bust-up marsha p johnson and christopher park. It's the city's burst statue of a trans person and only the six statute a historical woman. Out of eight hundred monuments. In new york city parks. You can put flowers in the crown openings. Take pictures with her celebrate her activism and i hope this bus can bring a smile to every passer-by so that there's a plaque on the bust. That says her name up. Is marsha pay it. No mind johnson pay. No mind isn't quotes. Because she would say that. Which is sort of. Like how rupaul always says what other people think about me is none of my business That's sort of the same sentiment. Had no mind which i think is fabulous and the quote says history. Which was the quote from marcia. History isn't something you look back at and say it was inevitable. It happens because people make decisions that are sometimes very impulsive and of the moment but those moments are cumulative realities and then under that it says lover of poetry flowers space and the color purple the color not the novel although who it's brilliant novel to shout walker but what attached to show exactly what if it has to quote for something that was done of the moment. Do you know what i mean of something. That was just sort of varies. A wrong that needs to be righted. Retired of waiting for the city to give us the go-ahead for this after two years with or without the fucking pandemic. We're doing it ourselves. It's and she deserves. That did this. City come down with like did they. They dick's about it. Apparently so early told gotha missed said. The statute didn't receive a permit. The new york city parks permanent system is a very long subjective process. Committees have historically used permitting to deny statues of people of color women and queer people leaving the trans community without any representation. So i have to imagine that the new york city parks committee is not a very diverse group of people and.

I did not this list. Written down. typed out submitted to congress part of an initiative within the fbi. A list of women men children most of them black all deaths from decades ago crimes where justice went cold each name on the list a story with an open question dine vietnam. They've been in eastern your. They died right here in the united states. The blood or hundreds of innocent men and women of calling out to. I've spent more than a year china. Understand how why this list came about there. Were questions as to whether or not this was about the people or the politics. I spoke with some of the officials behind the effort as i communicate to the president. Look i'm not sure that our success rates can be very very high but nonetheless we have an obligation to the families. Try to understand what came with the promise that this list of names represents i will always think that we could have done more that there was just that one last interview that we should have gotten one more door we should have knocked on. I've spoken to the people who were trying to fulfill a promise to those on that list before the us government ever became involved. It was really one of those situations where you realize. The clock was ticking. We need to look at all these other cases in help. All these other people and i've talked to the families of those killed you've never given up on finding the truth. What would it be like if he had been conducted and beat their and nobody has ever been drive when i got the call house on top of the world. Oh my goodness my brother's not forgotten.

"Much of that is important when we think about how black chance women in particular face violence and have much higher mortality rates when we think about their longevity so many of them don't get to live to old people because of the violence that's endemic to their identity. Yeah which is why these later. Projects are so important that as both the gay rights movement but as the trans rights movement gains more visibility and more acceptance. They're able to leverage some of that new political power to try to write An injustice that had been done you know in the early ninety s right and so there have been over the years efforts to really get to the bottom of what happened here. You mentioned the two thousand and two investigation which reclassified it in twenty twelve. There was some activism that sort of reopened the investigation than again in two thousand sixteen Some activists went back and re interviewed folks I don't know if we will ever know exactly what happened. But i think the efforts to keep this open and keep keep digging are really important again. Not that long ago still living still living history so we'll see A couple of other sort of more recent notes in Twenty nine thousand. Nine johnson was on the inaugural fifty american pioneers trailblazers and heroes included on the national. Lgbtq wall of honor and unfortunately this got announced in february twenty. Twenty where i think. Maybe the news got buried a little bit by the events of what happened soon thereafter but there will soon be park in new york. City named in honor of marsha p johnson. I think that's wonderful. I think it's a wonderful to be able to have spaces like these. I know people like to poo poo symbolic change. But i do think that it matters to be able to play an park named after a black trans woman activists. And i don't think that's something again. She could have imagined for herself as well that she would be celebrated in this way But these symbolic things do have substance to them as well and they do matter and they make a difference in terms of how we normalize these identities so that we don't have to face the same battles and troubles that she did here here especially given who parks are typically after. Yes yes. This is the right direction. It is again a lot of johnson's community you know is still around. And so it's it's not just the gestures meaningful act for people who are still living in new york city. Who still part of this community are still fighting this fight. The park is on the east river. it's in brooklyn in williamsburg beautiful park. I've been there But next time you go there. I think i don't know when the plaque is going to go up but someday you will walk in park and you'll see the plaque the plaque and maybe someone will discover the story of marsha p johnson okay.

"Of people were arrested and beaten just for existing within these spaces, since activities associated with clearness. Were criminalised in the 19 thirties in what is now Miami Dade County, a venue not unlike the spaces. We have the freedom to create an occupied today existed. La Paloma nightclub was a space for burlesque like performances by both women and female impersonators. As well as a space for effeminate male performers. Most of the staff and patrons were clear and or gender nonconforming folks, one of the clubs, visitors described it as a scene for homosexuals and evening gowns and trouser DH lesbians as well. A sex workers on a November night in 1937 a group of nearly 200 men and women associated with the cake stormed the nightclub. Violently attacking the people inside, while Justin there long white hooded robes and burning their fiery cross. Later, local law enforcement conducted their own rate of lap Aloma. Given the time period, it's likely that the same authorities who raided as police had already attacked while their identities were concealed with the cake. Okay, Despite the violent vigilante and police raids lap, Aloma reopened with new programming that the manager described as spicier entertainment than ever. And that's just One example of the dozens, maybe hundreds of violent incidents that targeted the LGBTQ community for decades, leading up to 1969. So what made the stonewall riots of 1969 such an iconic turning point for gay liberation? Well, in the 19 sixties, the West Village in New York City became somewhat of a gathering place for gay people. And home to many underground gay venues. The Stonewall Inn was particularly known for being a place where trans people drag queens and homeless queer youth could gather safely. It was considered a safe space not only by the nature of being four queer people, but also because it gave young homeless queer individuals a place off the streets to be in the days leading up to the riots. Tension between the NYPD in the community was building a few days prior, police raided Stonewall harassing the patrons. Goal was to shut the end down. The LGBTQ community was growing tired of the brutality and impression they were facing for simply existing. In the early hours of June 28th 1969 police raided the Stonewall Inn again. Leading to the arrest of 13 patrons. As the patrons were being removed from the venue, a crowd gathered questioning the polices authority resulting in violent conflict. Many note a lesbian is one of the first people to fight back against the police that night, but some believing her to be stormy de la via de la via a bi racial Butch lesbian became known to be something of a guardian to lesbians in the city. Other prominent figures in the uprising where Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera Rivera was a Latina trans activist who was just 17 at the time. Marsha P. Johnson was an iconic figure, and then I see trans community and the Stonewall riots that night in 1969 was followed by six days of conflict and protest. Against the NYPD D. By the following night, the news of the right spread quickly across the city and a group of about 2000 protesters began to gather. What occurred was a direct confrontation between the police and protesters. The cops used fire hoses and threatened gun violence. While the crowd chanted and sang for liberation. Further acts of defiance involved the crowds, holding hands and engaging in other displays of affection, boldly as these could have been considered criminal activities at the time. Overall 21 People were arrested during the riot. Within several weeks. The New York Mata Jean society, one of the earliest LGBT organizations in the United States, let a gay power march throughout the city, drawing a crowd of hundreds. Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera went on to found Starr Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries, an organization that served eight homeless and runaway trans use, as well as other LGBTQ individuals. They also rallied against racism, sexual violence and transphobia. A year after the Stonewall riots on June 28 1970 The first Pride parade was held The 1st March gave the community a chance to memorialize the uprisings that had occurred on Christopher Street the year before. It's reported that the march started with just a few 100 people in downtown New York but swelled in size as it made its way up town towards Central Park. Displaying gay pride at this time was still a bold act, and it said that at the beginning of the march, many were worried about their safety. So they moved swiftly through the streets. Today, Pride celebrates the strides the community. Has made since that first public display of gay pride in 1970. We march in June to honor those who came before us and took to the streets, demonstrating against centuries of abuse, government hostility and discriminatory laws. Johnson. Like Mark because I like to be surrounded with winning. Marching, marching, marching, marching ladies marching naked ladies. Stand stand. Child. The.

What's on my mind so much, But I have been listening to you all morning, and I just want to address to people who called in earlier. First I wanted to address I think rooming with Cristina, who was calling in regards to someone else who had called in about the LGBT community and how those two move and how someone said those two movements should be kept separate. They shouldn't be kept separate because it's in a lot of Max. Trans activist who have you know worked so hard before to bring rights to people that are part of that community, But not only their, like everybody has a hole into benefitting from those From those you know, from those activists from all these people who are on the frontlines who are getting tear gassed who are taking a stand so you can no longer keep this movie except everybody does have to come together. And also she was talking about how it's beautiful to see other people come together again is beautiful, but You know, it's not beautiful. The reason why they're coming together because black and Brown people are being killed by police at alarming rates, and that brings me to my next point. Yes, the killing of George Floyd was racist, because if he was a white man, he would have been alive. And if a white man would have been treated the way he was treated on video by the cops. Oh, my God. People would have been outraged. That cop would have been in jail a long time ago. That cop would have probably been on death row or something because he was a black man. It took full on pleading arrest cops, and you know what? After these convictions, these cops are still going to be able to clean their little pension trying a little for one case, and that's that's the issue. Yes, races like people need to realize that Police brutality and issues of systemic and systematic racism affect people of color and black people so much more than they ever will. For a white person. You know, it is racist because you know what I see way more cops every day in my neighborhood in south central, then I every one that really helps. You know, I had people getting cold over and they police different to me like state police different You don't say it like it happened. And I've been pulled over everywhere and it depends on where you get pulled over. How the how the aggression is on you as well. You know what I'm saying? Like fact, Lee. Yeah. And you know what? I just want to say another point, Like, Yes, it is beautiful to see. Are these people coming together? But to me, it's not beautiful that people People in the LGBT Q. Plus community get killed every single day, people we don't have coverage on that, you know, And we're just lucky that in 2020 we have you know, everybody has a phone. People are putting their phones out. But with also with that, Also, I want to say that if you don't know who Marsha P. Johnson was a bunch of these other activists like You should also use that cell phone to educate yourself on so many things that were not part of the Black Panther Party. The black liberation are all these things that people every tell us about in school,.

"What's the word verbally? Yes since I've been in your which is fine. I knew the first two weeks. We're going to be a little rough because I had so many projects to get done before I left and paying people like Black woman empowerment project. That took a lot of money out of me right before I left to come the rub you know. A the audiences are different a little bit in Europe too because they're not necessarily from what I understand a tipping audience like you would find in New York. You get a base pay. You're going to get some money every night from from from you tips whereas the U. K. Audiences are a little bit different right. I forgot about that until I was on the plane on my way here and I was like could I mean literally temps can make a hundred dollar difference. Know what you're bringing it in from the night you know how are Ya. It's been a little bit of hit. Big Not getting tips but you also your out thankfully God. I'm a pimp in New York so I'm making money in New York while I'm here. Not like a real pimp. But you know like I work hard for my money and so I have a few parties happening where there's a door and I'll beginning money to help me along the way and so the doors yours whether you're there to collect it at the door or not. My name is on the flyer that's just like. Aj and the Queen where Rupaul the shot for the game but still got paid and everybody was like thou never happen in real life. She was hired to be there and that would never happen in real life. But it's my party and I'm just I'm still organizing it and hiring people that need a higher. I just am paid if I want to. I'm near pigeons. Sound so beautiful. Feeds toppin surpass that number once you did as the bird lady from. Mary poppins started throwing aggressively. Gresley throwing bread at people. That's hysterical and the managers are like dude. We have a right problem in this Barton. Well my problem always comes first exactly next up on your list was Michelle Obama and see. You did her in a lovely. I would guess Violet or few shirtdress. It's pretty an hank. What made you decide to go for that kind of look? Do you already have this dress or this is the photo you wanted so you found something to go along with it. A lot of outfits were made for the project I think total of sixteen of the looks were made for the project and then other ones had already. I would've actually had more made by got to the point where there just wasn't enough time and money to get every look made but twenty of the way were done by Chris Perez and he restyled some like I think I had maybe eleven weeks and he restyled them over and over again to look like the photos that I recall breed. Now I think the one that's really successful. The following one is just seen Baker. Who was the? She moved to France to Europe. Just like Earth. A kit did because she was just banned discrimination. Yeah she what she was facing so much adversity in the United States that she continue her career in Europe and you perfectly capture her rhinestone covered. Bananas Skirt I love that. Look it's out. I had made a year of I had it made a year ago. Knowing that I was GONNA use it for that. Soto to be honest. Like they're just some people didn't follow through our. The money situation wasn't correct time but for whatever reason I wasn't doing that kept twenty one to do it had to be in February. You know that's just like the first time I thought about it was like I knew that that that was going to be the time I would release the photos. I just kept missing opportunity but finally found Chris Perez and Caleb pre to be part of my team to make this happen. It was a lot and towards the end. We were all ready to kill one. Another but We we so we're working with the waves. You got on his nerves. Because you're like okay. I WANNA look like MMA Campbell next. And he's like I don't have that WIG. It was so much I had another product. I need to work on. So everything Kinda got curse aside until the last three weeks and we had three weeks to do I would say fifteen works. I think when fifty did her was the three hundred sixty five days of drags she had planned out at least a couple of years before and and Oh she had been secretly taking these photos and then when she posted them it made. It gave the illusion that she was dressing up in these costumes every day. But if you look at some of those. She was recycling some of her stuff later on. Definitely the face to change it a little bit like you were able to do like on the same day and you're like this is the day. I can get these because I just have to touch orbit once in a while but like for me. It was really important to really focus on their faces and try to make my face look much like their faces possible. Yeah there were two people. I did. Who at one person like did not have any makeup on whatever so and it is around the same era. The eyebrows style was similar but So I did that on the first person and then when I was after I was done with the photograph I added a little more of a wing to the eyebrow at like low smokey eye at the lip to our for the second person so the one that had the most makeup was you know. Harriet Tubman. Yes she's not. She's not wearing any makeup. Obviously there are a lot of women who were not wearing any makeup and at one point. My a guy was like you know aren't gonNA wear lashes and it was like for some of these women. I feel like it would be like a kind of not honoring the this image of them if I was to wear lashes authors yeah like Kathleen Neal cleaver who is the she was very involved in the Black Panther Party and and obviously this is a person who wears black turtlenecks. How's your hair in the fro and has a very no nonsense? Look about her. Yeah there's no way I was going to wear lash without. Yeah but you had the the feminist power earrings though report by and I was surprised. On how much of the how much stuff I had. That just went with the photos. Yeah you know like already in stock that was. I didn't have to buy but it was. This project was a huge financial undertaking and timewise. But I'm so glad that I actually have more photo to do And I would be taking maddening now. Marsha p Johnson yes. That's the both popular one and honey. Oh my God. They're eating it up. You know what it is. I think it's just those flowers on her head. Also Marsha P Johnson photograph by Andy Warhol on. I think there's a very similar painting that Andy Warhol did and I think you know she just seems radiating so much joy and happiness and inviting us to look at her that. I think that's a really good choice that you did for recreating that. Wonderful photo of the token activists. Yeah I mean she is the mother of the revolution In my opinion so definitely had to add at her and she translating Roman. It's part of the project is while she may not have thrown the first brick but she threw the first shade. Yes okay I just came up with that right now do you like that. You could use it. No I want but they do. Were you know Marsha p Johnson like? Why do you think that people are still thinking about her all these years later? So many activists we don't remember and I think in Andy Warhol's portrait definitely helped propel her into the Zeitgeist but what is it about like compared to Sylvia Rivera for example wise Marsha p Johnson so remembered? I think both of them are in my opinion. I mean in my circle of people at least but like people don't know what Sylvia Rivera looks like but everybody remembers this people that know. So are you asked me if you show picture purchased? Marsha P Johnson people. No I think that would take a lot of it has to do. With Warhol of its particularly this outfit. I think that this might even be one of Warhol's photos that you seek Eric. Which one.

"The name change on Saturday Marsha P. Johnson was an influential gay rights activist in New York City she fought on behalf of trans people throughout the city she was active in early and very involved at the Stonewall uprising where she confronted the police during the six nights of violence that's historian and journalist Eric Marcus he says Johnson had a central role in the Stonewall uprising which was sparked by police raiding a gay bar in Greenwich Village in June of nineteen sixty nine it was a turning point for gay rights in New York City Johnson gave an interview to Marcus in nineteen eighty nine it aired on his podcast making gay history here she is talking about storm all readers with that I know more please the talent a and we had enough three three rats men of valor denied that places out here with a lot of little chance we do end of day there was a rumor that Johnson was the first to throw a brick or cocktail glass after police at stone walls but Johnson herself said she didn't get there until two AM the first night when I got downtown the places already I'm fine with that rate already got rights had already died and they said the police went in there and that the place on fire in the years after Stonewall Johnson founded star a group that helps homeless trans youth in New York City and Marcus says that at that time Johnson in other trans activists needed to fight for recognition within the movement to it was very challenging to win a place within the organized LGBTQ civil rights movement which was not LGBTQ civil rights movement back then it was more like LNG it was a very different world in nineteen sixty nine people are fearful of people like Marcia she it's leading for trans rights until her death in nineteen ninety two since then her stature in the LGBT Q. movement has only grown it's a moment to celebrate Marcia and it's a moment to celebrate how far we've come in embracing the full range of people who who are in the LGBTQ civil rights movement Marsha P. Johnson's legacy will now.

"I definitely think that there is the best contact I think the deaths connected car because when you have multiple identity is that are are marginalized the groups in the various groups which are part of only once aleve the peace that mouth resonates with them in my opinion and the lives of trans women of color I should have been prioritize all along I I think about the history of the LGBTQ plus movement people like Sylvia her there and Marsha P. Johnson and trans women of color who were for bears to this algae we think you class sergeant political power of the last fifty era and so they were talking about the pitfalls of falling into specifically L. why it wealthy middle class class and so what we've seen over the decades as a math of increasing visibility for the LGBTQ plus community at large but that hasn't actually it's translated into power for those who are most marginalized in our community people of color people living with HIV people who are deaf a ball and then trans people specifically and so what has happened in the wake of marriage equality is you know there hasn't been a mass of restructuring of our community institutions around solving the epidemic of violence will Raquel thank you so much for speaking with us absolutely thank you for having me here.

"In the stonewall fifty i asked them to read one of the short plays about the stonewall uprising for us let's take a listen this is a play called who threw the first brick it's by current gusts schulenburg who is a trans writer very prominent voice of new york theatre okay you want it to be simple that's not what i want you wanna clean beginning not exactly but i do want to know who threw the first brick or the first shot glass whatever it was you wanted to be handsome white man that's for sure not what i want do you want to be marsha p johnson and sylvia rivera well i don't want them out that's for damn sure you want your heroines i want my history you want your plaques and your monuments more than that i want them it where it happened one stormy to labbe club in the face i don't want any more violence against us you want her punching the cup back closer but you want when they hauled her into the van yeah and she turned to the crowd yelled why don't you guys do something why don't you guys do something Yeah. That's what I want. that's powerful stuff in the reading was equally powerful i'm feeling it literally what stood out to both of you about that piece it's talking about the wants of someone and you have to figure you can figure it out by prospal nation i don't want this i don't want that but you know what i do want i want you guys to do something whether it's transparent being killed or gate kids killing themselves suicide i want you to do something and make this okay i think for me would struck me about this work is it speaks very directly to the continuum in history it names the names it invokes the spirit of those contributions and asks the sort of very present existential question what what now what does this leave us with what do we do with that history and legacy in what do we do to continue that momentum does art and in this case theater specifically does that help normalizing the every day for transgender people in other words is there is the goal to alternately be able to watch a play and it's not this is a transgender play but this is a play that's really good that happens to center around the transgender experience or happens to have trans leads in it is that ultimately the goal is that would that be part of sort of moving this to more of a you know money ndayen conversation to beautiful what if yes it definitely is that where i can go in front of dishes as trans person of color and audition for waitress number two whatever and it's not about me being trans literally just being the waitress so i and you do have a lot more normalize them to do dominic how much of the work that you did with these plays was really meant to sort of correct the record or or the mainstream narrative around stonewall an interesting question i think we thought about it as speaking to the continuum where it was where it is now and where the community is going so a lot of that is simply speaking names and alive place did has patrick sort of mentioned did speak those names but the other thing that's correcting it's locating queer nece in perspectives of communities of color of gender questioning individuals of people who are english learn language or people who are not primarily english speaking and i think when you locate those types of narratives in in the in center them in those kind of perspectives it gives us an opportunity to really look at the bigger picture and maybe correct some of the history but also widen the lens on the narratives of queer nece now and intersection has such a buzzword in our culture but what that means in real time is creating cultural currency and visibility with those around us dominic dunn dre is the artistic director of the one minute play festival and the stonewall fifty plays patrick morgan is an actor and writer who performed.

"And that includes so many different parts of our community. And also, we know that trans people we are not that summa bloc trans limit. My variance is going to be very different from the person who just spoke. And also, we need more non binary representation. So there's so much going on that we need to make inroads for. I will say one of the conversations that continue to come up. Is that, you know, while there is so much visibility, particularly right now in the media, we see like pose and, and all of these amazing shows coming up, we are still building with an epidemic of black translucent being martyr. Right. And so it's almost like every other week during five months have heard of another black cans, man, or ground transcendent being murder, whether it was on the streets weather. Was in, in custody for ice or law. They were incarcerated. And so we really need to tackle that community because if we think about people like Marsha p Johnson. We know that even in their lifetimes. They were fighting for more really trying to keep their sisters alive and keep the people who have been so pushing the margins but our community alive. And I will say the last thing I do think that there's a lot of hope around us that we don't hear and larger media conversation around trans people, particularly trans woman of color, creating faces for healing, and that is something that is happening and pretty much every corner of the country. And even I would imagine around the world as we are creating these prices aren't just waiting for people to come and say that, but it would be great if those larger community got on board. Well, we'll have lots to talk about on that score. I want we, we have tons of calls. So I want to keep moving them through. And I think. Jose in queens wants to talk about thinking about representation for young people as well. Jose. Welcome to WNYC. Hi, glad to be here. Would you wanna tell us about Jose? Yes.
