According to the above linked article, Marsha was instrumental in the Stonewall Riots which eventually brought us the Pride movement, bringing rights to LGBT people in the United States. The article is interesting and tells a lot about Marsha’s life, even though much of it was difficult. She was a black, trans sex worker whose death was by questionable circumstances.
The Marsha P. Johnson Institute was formed, helping defend the rights of black trans people.
I have several of the books on the list in the above linked article. It is a wonderful, inclusive list, put out by Kundiman publishing. I recommend taking a look at it. Below is a list of the books mentioned in the article.
The above linked article talks about a photo shoot from 2017 that Barbie did with Aimee Song’s doll. According the the article, Mattel says that Barbie is queer when it authorized the photo shoot. I don’t disagree that Barbie might not be only into Ken, but, really, it seems that Twitter and memes are the ones who declared her sexuality, and not Mattel.
The photos are fun, and so are the comments, but I am not sure that it was authorized by Mattel.
