Description

“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.

Commentaires

"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)

A very moving account of a brilliant life

Sarah has had her share of struggles of sorrow, and also joys and great opportunities. She has always at heart progress and hope of a future for all, and how her place, her privileges can help others.
I was moved to tears, and I wish I could be like her.

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.

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.

Thank you Sarah for writing this book!

What an honor it was to listen to the life and story of Sarah McBride through Sarah's own voice. On every page her hopes, dreams and actions became more real. Her fears became palpable,; her joys and yes her agonies made tears flow. In the last quarter of my life, I am made more hopeful that a Sarah McBride lives in this world - especially as we are now living in such a fearful time. Sarah and her colleagues will be our shining guides to a better world for all. Please pick up this book and read it, or better yet, listen, and you will be made all the better for doing so.

I saw myself represented in sarah.

This was an amazingly humanizing and humbling story. Sarah is so strong and admirable through all her struggles. She make me feel proud to be trans.

I wish I could give it more than 5 stars

This is an important book that should be read by all. It should be required reading for all people. Filled with loving moments and heartbreaking tragedy. Whether you struggle with your gender identity, as I do, or you are affirmed in it this book is a window into the soul of the LGBTQ movement. Because of this beautiful book I am regretting every 5 star rating I've given in the past. This book is truly profound and I have no doubt that in the future it will be held up as an influencial work in the greater American non-fiction genre of literature. Do yourself a favor and buy this book.

Beautiful and important story

This will make you ugly cry. It is such an important book. As a cis person I feel like this is a powerful tool in understanding the complexities of trans identities and civil rights, and also realising that identity is complex, cis or otherwise. For trans people listening to this book: I hope that this fills you with hope and love.
