Netflix: Marsha P. Johnson

Our partners at Netflix asked us to create a series of gifs to promote the documentary The Death and Life of Marsha P Johnson. As fans and admirers of the legendary trans icon, we were humbled to take on the task. Inspired by zine culture within the 70's punk, activist, and LGBT movement, as well as the flowers and colorful decor worn by Marsha herself, we created each gif out of collage paper and mixed materials.
