Pay It No Mind - The Life and Times of Marsha P. Johnson (2012)

Marsha, what a trip. She was something else. I vividly remember seeing her back in the 70's & 80's on Christopher Street. Kids would point at her in awe with bulging bug-eyes saying, "See that crazy drag queen over there?" I would respond, "Well honey, she started the Stonewall riots." The listener's mouth without fail would drop agape, because she was truly a sight to see. Then, after that, all the up and coming queens whenever we saw her would pause & genuflect as she made her way along the cobblestone streets of Greenwich Village. She is an undisputed icon. She's the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, and the Sphinx all rolled up into one divine ball.
