Publisher's Summary

“A brave, powerful memoir” (People) that will change the way we look at identity and equality in this country, from the activist running to become the first openly transgender state senator in US history.

Foreword by Joe Biden

Before she became the first transgender person to speak at a national political convention in 2016 at the age of 26, Sarah McBride struggled with the decision to come out - not just to her family but to the students of American University, where she was serving as student body president. She’d known she was a girl from her earliest memories, but it wasn’t until the Facebook post announcing her truth went viral that she realized just how much impact her story could have on the country.

Four years later, McBride was one of the nation’s most prominent transgender activists, walking the halls of the White House, advocating inclusive legislation, and addressing the country in the midst of a heated presidential election. She had also found her first love and future husband, Andy, a trans man and fellow activist, who complemented her in every way...until cancer tragically intervened.

Informative, heartbreaking, and profoundly empowering, Tomorrow Will Be Different is McBride’s story of love and loss and a powerful entry point into the LGBTQ community’s battle for equal rights and what it means to be openly transgender. From issues like bathroom access to health care to gender in America, McBride weaves the important political and cultural milestones into a personal journey that will open hearts and change minds.

As McBride urges: “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.” The fight for equality and freedom has only just begun.

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)

Amazing Trans story

I love that this book goes past the first years of transition and really covers more of her life as a woman. I got a lot out of relating to that period, while also getting a lot about the fight for state and national Trans Rights.

I broke up this book over a lot of grocery trips, and there was about 2 weeks where I was just tearing up walking in grocery aisles. Luckily it's Covid winter, so I'm in a knit cap, scarf, mask, and glasses and my face is almost completely obscured. But, I loved the openness and honesty.

It also helped me feel much more confident in what the Biden administration will try to do for trans people. This book helped me feel that we have a very transformative 4 years ahead of us.

Great read, and Congrats Sarah.

A political memoir for the beleaguered progressive

Sarah McBride's story is a must read for political junkies looking for a light at the end of the bigotry tunnel.

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.

Beautiful Story

What a journey Sarah has had in her young life. This book is a love story, a life and loss story, and so much more. I am not easily moved to tears, but I cried at her wedding and I cried when she lost her husband. As the mother of a wonderful transgender son, I thank both Sarah and Andy for the work they and so many others have done to make the world a better place.

Inspiring

I came out publicly as transgender almost 2 years ago. The inspiring words spoken by Sarah McBride were touching, emotional and honest. Never before have I heard the transgender experience so well articulated into words. I look forward to reading any future work by Sarah and find myself grateful to have her as a leader in our community.

If you don't cry, you are heartless!

One of the best and most emotional books I have listened to. Thank you Sara for sharing your personal story, the truth of society's biases towards LGBTQetc, what has and should be done to promote equality, and for being you. I feel like I have a new sister.

Very emotional and eye-opening

Having suddenly engrossed myself in these sorts of books, this one reallly opened my eyes to political activism and how -we- can make a differance. Small stones make wide ripples and all that.

Can't lie though, I was in tears for around the last 3 hours or more though. Yes, while working.... I got more than a few stares. Most importantly though from the bottom of my heart. Thank you Sarah for everything you've done and shared.

Loved this book!

An intelligent and inspiring book. I was gripped from the start. Sarah so eloquently conveys powerful messages of love, hope and the need to be seen and accepted while powerfully educating on the importance of human rights and dignity for one of the most vulnerable and yet courageous communities in society. Each chapter made me well up or to full blown tears. Tomorrow can and will be different.

Reads like campaign rhetoric

Dissapointing, because I was hoping for a more personal account of being trans. This was instead like a sanitized version of the traditional trans narrative given to gatekeepers (feeling complete wearing a dress as a kid, praying to wake up a girl etc.) with repeated references to how great Joe Biden is, how personal freedoms are core to the Democrats' ideology and so on. Really trowelled on so thick, it's hard to read this as anything but political rhetoric stuffed inside the shell of an authentic human story.
