When you ask someone if you can hug them, it’s always important to remember to wait for their answer. Sometimes even a “hugger” might not be feeling up to a hug that day! A hi-five, wave, or thumbs up would work great!

Our LGBTQ2S History
Sylvia Rivera Activist, Trailblazer - (1951–2002)Sylvia Rivera was a Latina-American drag queen who was a gay and transgender activist in the 1960s and 70s. She's known for participating in the Stonewall Riots of 1969.
Sylvia Rivera is also known for the "Ya'll Better Quiet Down" speech in New York City at the Christopher Street
Liberation Day Rally in Washington Square Park in 1973 amid boos from the crowd.
Rivera organized the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (STAR) with her friend Marsha P. Johnson. Rivera and Johnson started STAR House in order to assist the homeless in the gay community, with a focus on LGBT people of color. We fed people and clothed people. We kept the building going. We went out and hustled the streets. We paid the rent.” Though Rivera was only nineteen herself, she became like a mother to many of the residents at STAR House, and she and Johnson helped to form a home and family for those who needed it most.
