Netflix has finally shared the trailer for The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson — and it looks absolutely stunning.
Marsha P. Johnson was one of the pioneers of the LGBTQ movement. She was heavily involved in the 1969 Stonewall Riots, co-created STAR (Street Transvestites Action Revolutionaries), the world’s first transgender rights group with Sylvia Rivera. She also worked with the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP). The film explores her death in 1992, when Johnson was found dead in the Hudson River. While it was ruled out by police as a suicide, people who knew her, such as fellow trans activist Victoria Cruz, try to uncover the truth to figure out what happened to her.
“There’s a massive number of trans women who have been murdered and they’re yelling out from their graves for justice,” Cruz said in the new trailer.
The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson will be premiere on Netflix on October 6. You can check out the trailer down below.
