To honor Transgender Day of Remembrance, the Center for Gender and Sexuality Law will host a screening of the documentary, “Pay It No Mind – The Life and Times of Marsha P. Johnson”, directed by Michael Kasino and Richard Morrison.
Marsha “Pay It No Mind” Johnson was a radical activist who fought for more than 3 decades for LGBT liberation. Ms. Johnson was one of the transgender activists on the ground fighting for LGBT rights during the Stonewall Riots, and in the 1970s she co-founded S.T.A.R., the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (later re-named the Street Transgender Action Revolutionaries) with legendary transgender activist Sylvia Rivera.
Following the screening of the film, the Center will host a panel discussion with Che Gossett, Tyler Ford and Suneela Mubayi moderated by Benjamin I.J. Mintzer.
The event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required.
