As an organization that centers the voices of transgender, gender non-conforming, and intersex (TGNCI) people of color in the fight for liberation, the Sylvia Rivera Law Project holds a deep commitment to the legacies of revolutionaries like Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera. For over four years, Reina Gossett served as SRLP’s Director of Membership. She was also one of the inaugural members of SRLP’s Movement Building Team, formed to organize trans people of color to make transformative change. Her impact and leadership at SRLP extend beyond our organization, into the broader movement for racial, gender, and economic justice. The legacy of her work as an artist, writer, and movement leader is evident in her commitment to tirelessly working to continue lifting up the legacies of TGNCI people, both those who are currently living and our ancestors who we look to for guidance and strength. SRLP is firmly in solidarity with Reina Gossett. We must continue to support art and media that is created and led by our community for our community.
