Today is Marsha P Johnson‘s birthday, and the anniversary of the death of Bayard Rustin. I’m taking inspiration from their work as civil rights activists and LGBTQ+ people who worked, marched and protested for LGBTQ+ rights and for black people’s rights.
Today’s prompt is to write your protest – maybe it’s a speech that you deliver from the podium, maybe it’s a series of placard slogans, maybe it’s the battle cry or manifesto or series of demands. It could also be instructions to the crowd, or it could be the marching song you sing. Or, you could write to or about your fantasy community – describe the world or life that you’d like to see after the protests have been successful.
