People of Power: Sylvia Rivera

Happy Pride Month! 🏳️‍🌈

What better way to celebrate than with best friends?!

Last week we met Marsha P. Johnson. Today we meet her best friend and fellow LGBTQIA+ activist Sylvia Rivera.

An unapologetic fighter on the front lines of the Gay Rights movement, she was also one of the revolutionaries at the Stonewall Riots in 1969.

Our “People of Power” series highlights the accomplishments of POC heroes from all disciplines.

Let us know if there is a POC hero that you want to know more about!
