She's a Riot, Party With a Purpose

Digital Rally, March and Dance fundraiser benefitting the Marsha P. Johnson Institute featuring Mj Rodriguez, Billy Porter, Bob the Drag Queen, Nina West, Detox, DJ Lina and more. Tickets begin at $10 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. #Ticketed #National #Communities of Color #Transgender #Performance #rally #fundraiser #blacktranslivesmatter
