The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson

Alchetron

This documentary, directed by David France, is about a legendary New York drag queen named Marsha P. Johnson. Johnson, who described herself as a "street queen," died in mysterious circumstances.

Her body was found in the Hudson River in 1992 and the police claimed she died of suicide. The notion was roundly rejected by Johnson's friends.

The documentary is both an investigation of her possible murder and a celebration of her life as an activist. Johnson co-founded Street Transvestites Action Revolutionaries (S.T.A.R.) with Sylvia Rivera.
