During this 4-minute experience you will be immersed in an abstract world inspired by the elaborate headdresses worn by Marsha. As you explore this colourful world of lights and flowers, you learn of the role Marsha played in progressing LGBT+ rights and the work that still needs to be done.

This experience goes beyond sharing the history of LGBT+ rights but places us at the heart of it, showing us the power we have to improve the world.
