I like to read books about LGBT subjects – crossdressing and transgenderism specifically; non-fiction, biographies, auto-biographies, memoirs, and historical trans personalities. I’m NOT interested in trans fiction or LGBT love stories. Most of what I have read has been about the LGBT journey and the challenges of coming out, then living as CD or trans. I find these accounts interesting and beneficial to me as I balance my own life’s story. My latest read is “Tomorrow Will be Different” by Sarah McBride. Sarah is currently a transgender state representative from Delaware. You may remember her from the 2016 DNC (Democratic National Convention) as she was one of the guest speakers thus becoming the first ever trans speaker at a national political convention.
Unlike the other books I have read hers is not the story of her struggle with being trans, living the lie, coming out, surgeries, etcetera. And unlike so many other trans people Sarah comes from a wealthy family, well connected politically, and had access to resources most of the rest of us do not have. She recognized her privilege and has used it for the greater cause working as an advocate for trans rights and equality. I expect we will see Sarah again on the national stage.
Very good read and I highly recommend it. Are you a reader? Any recommendations?
