This image is photoshopped. One of the most famous facts about Frida Kahlo is that she was in a severe accident as a youth that left her with brutal spinal injuries and no doubt a heavy amount of scarring as her most notable injury was a handrail that pierced her abdomen and uterus. As a queer woman of color living with an incredibly painful nerve disorder that effects my everyday life and mobility, this pisses me the fuck off. It erases what is likely the most influential event in her life and a huge part of her identity in order to sexualize and objectify her. This is bullshit colonialism at its best.

Marsha “Pay it No Mind” Johnson was a Greenwich Village artists from the 1960s to 1990s. Her legacy is grounded in her compassion for the trans community and her dedication to LGBT visibility and equality. Marsha worked alongside Sylvia Rivera, co-founding the organization Street Transgender Action Revolutionaries (STAR) and the STAR House to provide resources to and advocate for disadvantaged young trans women and drag queens. Marsha was one of numerous trans advocates involved in the Stonewall riots of 1969. Despite such contribution to the historic events, many gay groups of the era excluded the trans community from their efforts, which left Marsha both frustrated with the state of the movement and further determined to work on behalf of her trans peers.
