Meet activist Sylvia Rivera, as portrayed by actor, artist, and educator Summer Minerva. A veteran of the Stonewall uprising in 1969 and an advocate for anyone marginalized by the gay rights movement, Sylvia tirelessly raised her voice in defense of the rights of people of color and low-income queer and transgender people. Listen as Sylvia reflects on Stonewall, witness a retelling of one of her speeches, and then ask your very own questions about her life.
