Sylvia Rivera (1951-2002) was a legendary figure of the gay rights and trans
rights movements in the United States. She was a founding member of the Gay
Liberation Front and of STAR (Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries).

Her activism began in 1970, when she
started advocating not only for gay rights, but for the inclusion of drag queens
such as herself in the LGBT community. The same year, she founded STAR along
with Marsha P. Johnson, in order to help homeless LGBT youth.
