Shon speaks to Donna Personna, an American trans campaigner and writer who, as a teenager, frequented the famous Gene Compton’s Cafeteria in San Francisco. In 1966, three years before the Stonewall Riots in New York, it became the site of the Compton’s Cafeteria riots – one of the first-known LGBTQ+ riots in the USA. When Donna finds out about the protests 40 years later, she vows to keep the memories of the trans women she met at Compton’s alive.
