American transgender activist (the term transgender was not in wide use in Johnson’s lifetime; she usually used female pronouns for herself, but also referred to herself as gay, as a transvestite or simply as a queen), drag performer and, for nearly three decades, a fixture of street life in Greenwich Village. She was a central figure in a gay liberation movement energized by the 1969 police raid on the Stonewall Inn. She was a model for Andy Warhol, battled severe mental illness, was usually destitute and, for much of her life, effectively homeless.
These matte, museum-quality posters are printed on durable, archival paper. Behind the portrait of Marsha P. Johnson, you will find in the background roses, which are the USA’s national flowers.
