Miss Major Griffin-Gracy (1940 - present) is an American trans woman, activist for transgender rights, with an emphasis on women of color, veteran of the Stonewall Rebellion. Her efforts as Executive Director for a TGI Justice Project designed to aid transgender persons unfairly incarcerated under the prison-industrial complex, as well as her constant involvement in activist movements have made her an iconic figure in activism today. In addition to her focus on basic human rights, Miss Major built a global legacy of activism and will continue to pave the way for transgender women of color, particularly those who have survived incarceration and police brutality.
