About Marsha

You found your happiness in being yourself

You smiled when you wore lipstick

Your eyes shined when you found heels that fit you

You felt hopeful when you walked through the streets of New York and nobody insulted you

You fought for your happiness

You fought for your sisters' happiness

You were life

but they said you killed yourself

and now

nothing makes sense.

By Alessia D’Onofrio

Dedicated to:

Marsha P. Johnson (1945 – 1992)

American gay liberation activist and drag queen.
