Marsha P. Johnson and Randy Wicker discussing the Stonewall Inn and the beginning of the raid
Marsha P. Johnson and Randy Wicker discuss the clientele of the Stonewall Inn, and how the riots began. At one point during the Stonewall rebellion, the rioters began a kickline in the middle of Christopher Street, facing off with the police while singing. Marsha P. Johnson was a trans pioneer and activist, a founding member of S.T.A.R. (Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries), and a fixture of life in Greenwich Village. Marsha P.
