🌈✨ Sylvia Rivera: The Unyielding Spirit of Stonewall | Queer History 101 – Week 1 🌟
Hey, beautiful souls! 🌈🎓
Dive into the first episode of “Queer History 101” with Tiffany as we spotlight the legendary Sylvia Rivera! Born in 1951, Sylvia was a beacon of resistance during the Stonewall Riots and an advocate for LGBTQ+ people of color, trans individuals, and the economically disadvantaged. 🌟✊
From her passionate speech at the Christopher Street Liberation Day Rally in 1973 🎙️ to co-founding STAR 🌠, a sanctuary for trans youth in NYC, Sylvia’s legacy is a testament to the power of resilience and inclusivity.
Join us as we celebrate her indomitable spirit and challenge ourselves to be true allies in the fight for equality. Remember, our history shapes our future. Let’s make it count! 🏳️🌈
