New Mural in New York!! @iamsamkirk and @quirklyn painted a tribute to #VictoriaCruz, a Puerto Rican transgender woman who’s lived in New York since age four and devoted much of her life to activism dating back to the Stonewall era. Now 72, she remains involved with the Anti-Violence Project. If you haven’t seen it, check out David France’s @netflix documentary “The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson,” which chronicles Johnson’s LGBTQ activism along with that of Cruz and Rivera. NYC Pride's WorldPride Mural Project initiative, is an exciting new initiative in collaboration with production and curation partner, The @thelisaprojectnyc , founding partner, @hsbc Bank, and major supporter, @macys . Both local and international artists, 50 in total, were selected to create murals within the five boroughs of New York that reflect and honor the beauty, struggle, and strides of the LGBTQIA+ community. Over the course of May and mid-June, the complete set of murals will be unveiled, culminating before the WorldPride 2019 | ‪Stonewall 50‬ season commences. #WorldPrideMuralProject #WorldPrideMurals #stonewall50

jlindsecho. In today’s celebration of LGBTQ heroes and icons, I’d like to talk abo

In today’s celebration of LGBTQ heroes and icons, I’d like to talk about Victoria Cruz. Victoria Cruz is a transgender American LGBT rights activist and retired domestic violence counselor. A contemporary of trans activists Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera, all three were reportedly present during the Stonewall Riots, which marked a new direction for Cruz personally. She quickly became one of the city’s brightest queer and trans public figures during the following decades. Cruz began working with the Anti-Violence Project in 1997. She dedicated her life to helping LGBT victims of violence and rape. In 2017, Cruz was featured in the David France documentary The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson. In the film, Cruz conducts an investigation into how Johnson, whose 1992 death was initially ruled a suicide, really died. Cruz has referred to Johnson as the "Rosa Parks of our community." The documentary premiered at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival, and was subsequently acquired by Netflix for worldwide distribution. Her legacy cemented long ago, Cruz knows the future is bigger than she can ever envision. “I’m optimistic and I’m hopeful that it will change for the better,” she says. “There’s power in numbers. If we unite and keep united, we can make the future different, and what we want it to be. By galvanizing one another, we galvanize each other. And with the same frame of mind, the same frame of thought, we can change what’s happening.” ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🏳️‍🌈 #VictoriaCruz #pridemonth #pride2019 #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lgbtqpride #lgbtqhistory #loveislove

#victoriacruz painted by #samkirk and #jennyq LGBTQ rights activist. She was at the Stonewall Inn at the time of the riots. In 1970, Cruz was in the first Gay Pride march. She began working with the Anti-Violence Project in 1997, and has dedicated her life to helping LGBT victims of violence. “Almost nobody who was a trans person of color survived—and she survived. . . . She’s a witness to a time that most of us can’t even imagine.” #nycpride #stonewall50 #worldpridenyc #worldmuralproject #worldpridemuralproject #lisaprojectnyc #streetart

Latest artwork addition in the LES. This piece is a tribute to Victoria Cruz, a transgender woman who dedicated her life to helping LGBT victims of violence and rape. If it wasn’t for this mural I would’ve never known who she was, shows how art can spread positivity around the world. People like Victoria are who we should be talking about, not the racist prick in the White House. Credit to @iamsamkirk @quirklyn @miishab for the beautiful artwork. #VictoriaCruz #PeopleHaveThePower #SocialActivism #Positivity #LES #GraffitiMural #NYC

The beautiful tribute to Puerto Rican, transgender activist Victoria Cruz by @iamsamkirk with support from @quirklyn and @miishab. One of 11 children, Cruz was a contemporary of Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera and part of the Stonewall Riots 50 years ago. Despite decades of progress as a result of the activism following, she acknowledges that LGBTQ youth are still struggling with the same issues as she did back then, feeling safe with a roof over their heads and finding jobs. There are more groups offering support, but it still isn’t easy. Painted for World Pride and the 50th anniversary of Stonewall in conjunction with @nycpride and @thelisaprojectnyc. Located at the corner of Avenue A and East 2nd Street.

I was blessed with the opportunity to interview legendary activist #VictoriaCruz about her life, activism, and legacy. I spoke to her about the Stonewall rebellion and she had this to say: "The atmosphere in the Village was uncharacteristically gloomy. Then, when the police showed up and started attacking us—attacking, particularly, lesbian and transgender women of color—we said: ‘No, honey. Not today!’” I appreciate her for re-inscribing Black and Brown lesbians and transgender woman back into the narrative that has been whitewashed, cisgenderized, and maleified. #LGBTQ #transgenderrights #Pride Image description: Victoria Cruz seen seated on a sofa, next to her on the sofa's top end, a painting of Marsha P.
