Outdoor Film – The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson
June 26 @ 9:30 pm - 11:30 pm
In honor of Pride Month and its history, the documentary The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson will be screened on the lawn of the Marshall-Lyon County Library. This event is a joint venture of The MORE Network, the SMSU LGBTQ Plus Center, and the Marshall-Lyon County Library.
The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson follows the life and suspicious death of the Stonewall veteran and beloved rights activist. Decades after Marsha’s death is dismissed as a suicide, fellow activist Victoria Cruz documents the history they fought to make and works to reopen Marsha’s case. The film is one hour and 45 minutes long. It is rated TV-MA.
The event begins at 9:30 pm. Please note that it may already be very dark when you arrive. We plan to hold this event on the library lawn at the back of the building between the library and the Marshall Middle School. Park in the library parking lot. Signs and librarians will direct you. Bring what you need to be comfortable outdoors.
To ensure sightlines to the screen, space may be limited. Prime spots are first come, first served!
Because equipment must run outdoors, this event is subject to cancellation due to weather.

Rain during the event may cause the event to end early. Temperatures below 30 degrees may also cause the event to be cancelled. Check the forecast here. Announcements for cancellations will be made on social media, this website, and on Marshall Radio.
