Please join us for a screening of The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson. This powerful documentary examines the mysterious 1992 death of the Stonewall veteran and beloved Greenwich Village personality Marsha P. Johnson.
Following the screening, we will hear from a panel of faith leaders and organizers who are working for LGBTQ rights. Moderated by The Very Rev. Kelly Brown Douglas, our panel will reflect on the film, discuss the intersections of black trans storytelling, and the role faith communities can play during this current moment of erasure.

During the planning of this event, we learned that there is a dispute over the concepts, ideas, and archival footage used in this film from the filmmakers of the film Happy Birthday Marsha.
