Stonewall Uprising warrior, Andy Warhol model, and the Mayor of Christopher Street – pioneering gay rights activist, AIDS activist and drag mother Marsha P. Johnson was both enigmatic and unforgettable. Multiple documentaries have been made about Johnson, featuring interviews with family and friends, along with what archival footage of Johnson exists – at protests for gay rights, memorials for friends who’ve died from AIDS and gaybashing, along with Johnson’s stage performances with drag troupe Hot Peaches. The best way to know Marsha is through the documentaries where Marsha can be listened to on Marsha’s own terms. Many have tried to use Marsha to various ends in fictitious works. But thankfully, Marsha sat for several interviews. Seek these documentaries out and learn the truth for yourself.
