On the final day of Pride Month, Google is paying tribute to a key figure in the LGBTQ+ rights movement.
On Tuesday, Google unveiled its latest Doodle, in honor of LGBTQ+ rights activist Marsha P. Johnson. On June 30, 2019, Johnson was posthumously honored as a Grand Marshal of the New York City Pride March, says Google.
Cause of Death.
We have no information at the moment on of caused death .
The following are some tributes posted on social media to honor the life and the legacy of the deceased.
From Crispus Attucks to Marsha P. Johnson, there’s a history of those most disenfranchised standing there, in the front, screaming the loudest, ready to fight, and willing to sacrifice. let us remember as we get ready to celebrate American freedom that it all started with a riot.
PirateKittyAhoy wroteIf you’re wondering why Google’s Marsha P Johnson drawing does not include the lesbian flag despite it being in all the drafts, it’s because the creator of the lesbian flag spoke in support of bi/nb lesbians and so the creator of the drawing purposefully decided to exclude it.

I wrote this short bio about Marsha P. Johnson for work and it made me sad that Pride is ending. I hope our entire community can one day be as bright and giving and radical as her spirit was.
I’m glad that @AMorbidPodcast & other true crime podcast are covering the same cases BECAUSE THESE CASES NEED ALL THE ATTENTION THEY CAN GET. So I don’t care if they all sync up and have the same schedule. KEEP SAYING THEIR NAMES #TamalaHorsford #MarshaPJohnson #KendrickJohnson

All hail the queen, (& today’s google doodle) one of the mothers of the trans & queer liberation movement. Her words are a rallying cry still, “No pride for some of us without liberation for all of us.” #MarshaPJohnson pic.twitter.com/zrlFXeooKr
