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)

So glad this was recommended to me

I listened to this book during my commutes to work and I am 99% sure that everyone who saw me sobbing through this book now thinks I am emotionally unstable. When my friend recommended this book to me I was very hesitant because I was not sure what to expect but as soon as the book started with Joe Biden's forward I was hooked. Sarah's story is beautiful and powerful and I am so glad she has written such a great book.

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.
