Did Marsha P. Johnson Start the 1969 Stonewall Riots?

On a hot June night in 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn, a well-known gay bar in New York City, as they had many times before. This time, customers fought back. The uprising launched a national movement for LGBTQ rights. Many believe the powder keg exploded when a trans woman named Marsha P. Johnson threw a shot glass that shattered the mirror behind the bar. It wouldn't have been her first feat of activism. Decades later, when she was found dead, others had to advocate for her justice.

No one knows for sure who threw the first rock and started the riot. What's important is that they fought back against their oppressors. When Injustice Becomes Law, Resistance Becomes a Duty. ✊

I'm going to Boystown, Chicago the 30th for my first pride parade ever after coming out as lesbian and I'm trying to educate myself before then. I've never felt more pride being part of such a beautiful community. ❤

Marsha P. Johnson is not trans, he literally stated that he is gay and does drag. I don't know where the trans part came from.

nice activist though

LIES!! Stop transing the dead & rewriting LGB history! This is despicable how you float the false trans narrative that (a) Marsha was a trans woman & (b) he started the riots. In interviews, he & Sylvia admit to being across town trying to score when Butch LESBIAN of color, Stormé Delerverie (sp?) started fighting w/cops & asked the crowd if they were going to help HER. THAT'S what started the riots! NOT this dude. 🤬🤬🤬

And in her honor and memory bite into something besides the "big apple". The "L.G.B.T. & Q." Hoagie sandwich. That's "Lettace, Guacamole(avocado), Bacon, Tomato(tomatoe), & Queso(cheese)". Served in any type bread or bun that you like, because it's a free country.

In the official Bio for her Marsha said before she died that she was a 'Drag Queen' and a Gay Man. Back in the day the word Trans also meant a Transvestite, a guy that likes to dress up as a woman . She said she was a Gay Drag Queen.
