Publisher's Summary

A timely and captivating memoir about gender identity set against the backdrop of the transgender equality movement, by a leading activist and the national press secretary for the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest LGBTQ civil rights organization. 

Sarah McBride is on a mission to fight for transgender rights around the world. But before she was a prominent activist, and before she became the first transgender person to speak at the Democratic National Convention in 2016, she was a teenager struggling with her identity. 

With emotional depth and unparalleled honesty, Sarah shares her personal struggle with gender identity, coming out to her supportive but distraught parents, and finding her way as a woman. She inspires listeners with her barrier-breaking political journey that took her, in just four years, from a frightened, closeted college student to one of the nation's most prominent transgender activists walking the halls of the White House, passing laws, and addressing the country in the midst of a heated presidential election. She also details the heartbreaking romance with her first love and future husband Andy, a trans man and activist who passed away from cancer in 2014, just days after they were married. 

Sarah's story of identity, love, and tragic loss serves as a powerful entry point for listeners who want to gain a deeper understanding of gender identity and what it means to be openly transgender. From issues like bathroom access to health care, identification, and schools, Sarah weaves the important political milestones, cultural and political debates, and historical context into a personal journey that will open hearts and change minds. 

Tomorrow Will Be Different highlights Sarah's work as an activist and the key issues at the forefront of the fight for trans equality, providing a call to arms and empowering look at the road ahead. The fight for equality and freedom has only just begun. 

"We must never be a country that says there's only one way to love, only one way to look, and only one way to live." (Sarah McBride)

Must read for everyone

I cannot recommend this book enough, Sarah McBride is a wonderful advocate and passionate representative for trans people. She makes it clear that there are transgender people who face greater struggles than she did and that she wants to use her privilege to improve the lives of others.

This is a powerful book, and should be in everyones collection.

A Nice Overview

What did you like best about Tomorrow Will Be Different? What did you like least?

This book will serve as a nice overview for straight people or gay people who are uneducated on Trans issues, but it doesn't dig deep into what it is to be a Trans person. The story of Sarah's life is certainly interesting, and she does a good job of never hiding her privilege, but I was hoping for a bit more insight into BEING Trans.

There's no doubt Sarah has lived a remarkable and heartbreaking life so far, and it's a life worth reading about. I just hope with her next book she can plumb the depths of her interior life a bit more.

A Must Read!

After voraciously consuming each chapter, I'’ve finished "”Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss and the Fight For Trans Equality"” by Sarah McBride. Her powerful and moving memoir is one of only a handful of books I consider the best I’'ve ever read. Her conviction to live her fullest and most authentic self is beyond anything I'’ve ever experienced. She inspires, educates, and sets the bar for what it means to live compassionately and heroically. If, in my life, I can create change for a better world by just a fraction of what she has done already in her 27 years, then I have lived a good life.

Her memoir is a must read for anyone who seeks to know about gender identity, equal rights, the depth of love and hope, and the intricacies and importance of activism in government.

Our Future is brighter because Sarah is in it

Would you consider the audio edition of Tomorrow Will Be Different to be better than the print version?

I don't know about better, but the audio edition has the emotions behind Sarah's voice, and it sure helps with the narration. She does nothing short of making it feel like she is your best friend and she is sitting with you telling you stories that she wants people to know.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Tomorrow Will Be Different?

The most memorable would have to be the ending, when Sarah gets hopeful about the future. Somethings a lot of us have a hard time doing these days, especially in the LGBTQ+ community. She also rips your heart out with the stories of Andy, but yet they are so warm and loving you can't help but smile and cry at the same time.

What about Sarah McBride’s performance did you like?

Everything. Sarah's performance was just so powerful and magical. She gave us so emotion to an already heartfelt journey. I am glad she could share this story with us all. It not only helped me understand her story, but mine as well.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. If I could have I would have. I made it 6 hours in the first sitting though. Her story is just so intriguing and powerful. I'll never be able to say enough good things about Sarah and her book.

Any additional comments?

Thank you, Sarah. You have helped so many, and continue to do so. I hope this will give many others the strength the I feel from it.
