“It makes me feel so good that we are starting to see LGBTQ history written for kids in so many different formats. While it’s simplified, this is a great starting point for younger kids to learn about two important icons in American LGBTQ history. I love the supplements in the back for kids to learn more and for parents to talk with their kids about what they read.”

Someday girls like us will be able to wear whatever we want. People will call us by the names we choose. They'll respect that we are women. The cops will leave us alone and no one will go hungry.Sylvia and Marsha are closer than sisters. They are kind and brave and not afraid to speak their truth, even when it makes other people angry. This illustrated book introduces children to the story of Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson, the two transgender women of colour who helped kickstart the Stonewall Riots and dedicated their lives to fighting for LGBTQ+ equality. It introduces children to issues surrounding gender identity and diversity, accompanied by a reading guide and teaching materials to further the conversation.
