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)

Critic Reviews

"In a world where the most vitriolic voices often sound the loudest, McBride's story reveals that most people are not prone to hate." (The Washington Post)

“Part autobiography, part advocacy, [Tomorrow Will Be Different] succeeds beautifully on both counts.... Highly readable and beautifully written, [McBride’s] is an inarguably important book that deserves the widest possible readership.”(Booklist, starred review) 

"A brave transgender woman experiences both triumph and tragedy in this memoir of transitioning and so much more.... Throughout, the author ably balances great accomplishments and strong emotions. Reading McBride's inspiring story will make it harder to ostracize or demonize others with similar stories to share." (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

“McBride’s story is touching, thought-provoking, at times tear-jerking, and absolutely worth the read for all who care about equality.” (Harper's Bazaar)

Thank you Sarah!

OH My Goodness!!! Sarah - you are amazing! Thank you so much for sharing your story, your passion and your support for the trans community. Tomorrow will be different! Change is happening, even in the current political environment we are making progress.

This book touched my heart on so many levels - your personal story - your love for Andy - your fight for the community at large and the life you lead today to help change minds through relationships. I've long held an interest in politics but the bitterness and hate spewed from both sides is such a struggle. You showed us how to be gracious but firm and have not given up! Thank you!

Incredibly Authentic and Inspiring - gives me hope

As the parents of a trans son, we are reading (listening) to everything we can. Educating and informing ourselves is our priority. Sarah opening up in this way makes her so incredibly vulnerable and completely authentic at the same time. The description and detail of her, and what became her and Andy’s journey is so inspiring and moving. There were times that what she is saying is so private and painful that I felt like I wasn’t in a space worthy of hearing this information, for example on the train commuting to work. This book is amazing and you will find yourself laughing, crying, and cheering alongside Sarah. We, like the majority of people, didn’t know much about the trans community before our son came out to us, just about a year ago. Because of our son’s courage, our other 2 children also had the courage to come out, and be open about their sexuality. I recommend this book no matter what your familiarity with trans, gender non-conforming people is. You will definitely come away with a greater understanding. Thank you Sarah!! Thank you Andy!

Eye opening, informative, and heart filling. This book should be a mandatory read for anyone in this modern world. Sarah's story is impressive for any young person, let alone someone who is battling discrimination. Her self awareness and educated point of view sheds a realistic light on some serious societal problems. I'll absolutely be recommending this one.
