We love this story of two central figures in the fight for justice and acceptance for young trans people of color, and specifically trans boys, in a retelling of what happened the night of the Stonewall Rebellion. A historical event is personalized for us through Sylvia and Marsha’s friendship and an approximation of their words: “‘Honey, I’m tired of being treated so bad,’ said Marsha. ‘Sylvia sighed. ‘Someday girls like us will be able to wear whatever we want. People will call us by the names we choose… The cops will leave us alone and no one will go hungry,'” A moving retelling of their lives of service and sacrifice appropriate for any child or classroom.
