On June 28, 1969 the Stonewall Rebellion was started by Trans women of color who were tired of harassment by police. As Marsha P. Johnson, one of the leaders of the Stonewall Rebellion, said, “No Pride for some of us without liberation for all of us”. We stand with the communities of color and say when your arms are tired, we will help lift them up!
