These emblematic transgender activists founded the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries to help homeless LGBTQ young people in 1970.
Some witness accounts even identified them as leaders of the Stonewall uprising that helped liberate the LGBTQ movement.

Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson were two remarkable transgender women.
They have brought more than we can imagine to our community and they will be honored with a monument in Greenwich Village.
