Join us for the Pittsburgh premiere of Happy Birthday, Marsha! followed by a discussion about visibility, representation, and authorship with filmmakers Tourmaline and Sasha Wortzel, moderated by local advocate Ciora Thomas. Happy Birthday, Marsha! imagines iconic transgender performer and activist, Marsha 'Pay it No Mind' Johnson in the hours before the 1969 anti-policing riots at the Stonewall Inn in New York City. Starring Independent Spirit Award Winner Mya Taylor with cinematography by Arthur Jafa, Happy Birthday, Marsha! blends documentary storytelling with historical fiction to counter the endemic erasure of trans women of color from narratives of political resistance.
