Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera: The First-Ever Transgender Activists to Receive A Public-Permanent Monument

For the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall rebellion, New York City will be honoring LGBTQ activists Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera with public monuments. They will become the first-ever Transgender activists to receive permanent-public monuments worldwide. The monument’s proposed location is at the Ruth Wittenberg Triangle, just a few blocks away from the scene of the Stonewall riots and emergence of the LGBTQ rights movement.
