We want to share another BIG thank you to everyone who helped us exceed our fundraising target on Indiegogo! Thank you to everyone who donated, everyone who shared the campaign, and everyone who helped us out in other ways during that time!
If you still have some money on you that you would like to donate to a good cause then, following on from our earlier post today, why don’t you consider donating money to Happy Birthday Marsha – a film about legendary transgender artist and activist, Marsha “Pay it No Mind” Johnson and her life in the hours before the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City. All donations will help the film get out of post production.
Here is a statement from the filmmakers:
“We truly believe how we tell the stories of our heroes matters, so we are drawing upon our community to make this film because we have an opportunity to make a movie written, directed and produced by people living Sylvia & Marsha’s legacy through our own work. It’s been 45 years since the Stonewall rebellion yet the leading role that street queens, trans women of color and gender non-conforming people had during the riots hasn’t received the recognition it deserves. By making Happy Birthday, Marsha!, we are seeking to change that.”
