ABOUT As Pride and the Black Lives Matter movement collide in 2020, remember that the LGBTQ+ rights movement owes its very being to RIOTS led by people of color — it’s important to honor and remember that now more than ever. On June 28, 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn, a meeting place for LGBTQ+ New Yorkers. When they demanded sex verification checks on trans women, a spontaneous protest broke out, and at the forefront of those protests were lead by queer BIPOC like Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera. Pride owes its very existence to a RIOT, and it took radical acts of change to just start the conversation about LGBTQ+ issues in America, a conversation that continues to this day. The Marsha P Johnson Institute, the renowned organization that protects and defends black transgendered people through community organization, advocacy work, leadership training and promoting our collective power, is the She’s A Riot primary beneficiary.
