She reveals that she’s always wanted to be a public speaker and asked her parents for a podium and a teleprompter as a child. She got the podium.

McBride, a widow, also briefly discussed her marriage to Andrew, a transgender man who died of cancer shortly after they were married. The couple was well known and deeply loved in DC and around the country. Andrew died less than a week after they were married.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, a friend of McBride’s from childhood, wrote the forward to the book.
