Excellent nuance and portrayal of complex identify issues here.

Marsha Johnson, by the way, whom I knew by sight and reputation but not personally, also did not apparently identify as transgender, though she was a fierce pioneering activist.

Labels have changed, but issues remain largely similar. And these two fierce humans deserve to be remembered for their insistence on radical inclusion.
