AHP Pride Movie Night – “The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson”

Kick off Pride month at the Alliance Health Project’s LGBTQ and HIV community clinic to view this ground-breaking documentary together. We will have popcorn and sparkling water and a post film discussion. Bring a friend or two or three and let’s start Pride month off together!

“Marsha P. Johnson was a transgender activist who played important roles in the Stonewall Riots and the gay-rights movement. Her body was found in the Hudson River in 1992, and while the police labeled her death a suicide, many of her friends suspected she was murdered.

Victoria Cruz of the New York City Anti-Violence Project has been exploring the case, and to watch her track down retired detectives and follow potential leads is to see a determined soul at work. By itself, the investigation raises red flags about crime, discrimination and police apathy — more than enough material to supply this film. . . ”
