Why does the law view women as little less than human? 
Why are their lives worth less than the property of the state? 
You know your country is sick when you get more for robbery than you do for rape 
Yet it happened before our very eyes we allow these laws to exist 
There is a greater value put on money than on human life 
And still we sit passively? 
We let these laws classify us into men, women, and black and white

Women in GLF [the Gay Liberation Front, an organization Rivera co-founded] were uncomfortable referring to [Sylvia] Rivera – who insisted on using women’s bathrooms, even in City Hall – as “she.” The pressure mounted. The year 1973 witnessed a clash that would take Rivera out of the movement for the next two decades. As her lifelong friend and fellow Stonewall veteran Bob Kohler recalled, “Sylvia left the movement because after the first three or four years, she was denied a right to speak.”

The breaking point came during the Pride rally in Washington Square Park after the 1973 Christopher Street Liberation Day march. To the dismay of Lesbian Feminist Front (LFL), drag queens were scheduled to perform. As LFL passed out flyers outlining their opposition to the “female impersonators,” Rivera wrestled for the microphone held by emcee Vito Russo, before getting hit with it herself. Rivera later explained, “I had to battle my way up on stage, and literally get beaten up and punched around by people I thought were my comrades, to get to that microphone. I got to the microphone and said my piece.” Rivera complained that the middle-class crowd cared little to nothing about the continued harassment and arrest of street drag queens. Bleeding, Rivera screamed, “Revolution Now!” and lend the crowd in a chant of “Give me a G, Give me an A, Give me a Y … What does that spell?” Barely audible, her voice breaking, she groaned, “GAY POWER.” Russo later recalled that only the sudden appearance of Bette Midler averted outright violence, as trans opponents and supporters battled over the mike. Midler, having listened to what was happening on the radio in her Greenwich Village apartment, rushed to the scene, wrested control of the mike, and started singing “Friends.” Rivera would not return to formal queer organizing for some two decades.
