WE DID IT! Together, we have raised over $25,500 to lift up the rich legacies of Marsha P Johnson and Sylvia Rivera! Over 400 people have donated and countless others helped us spread the word by sending out emails, posting on Facebook, and tweeting calls for support, we couldn’t have done this without you! THANK YOU!
In a moment when violence against trans women of color continues to take more and more lives the collective lifting up Sylvia and Marsha’s legacies not only resists the exclusion of trans women of color from the very movements we helped create, but is a powerful assertion that our lives are valuable beyond measure! This film, written, co-produced and co-directed by a trans woman of color, will be the first of its kind to reach a wide audience and could not have happened without all of you who understand the importance of story and representation in claiming a lineage and practicing self-determination.
On a celebratory note today Happy Birthday, Marsha! is featured on Indiewire’s Bent Blog, you can check out the great interview done by Rodrigo Brandão here: http://blogs.indiewire.com/bent/crowdfunders-forum-a-new-film-celebrates-and-honors-the-legacy-of-marsha-p-johnson-and-sylvia-rivera-20140814
LETS CELEBRATE! There are still 21 hours to donate and any additional funds will go towards our total budget (which is on our Kickstarter page) so would definitely benefit from your continued support. Please keep sharing this major victory!
We couldn’t have done this without you and we can’t thank you enough!
