Summary

“A brave, powerful memoir” (People) that will change the way we look at identity and equality in this country.

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)

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!

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!

5 stars all

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.

Powerful, thought provoking, and awe-inspiring

What an amazing and powerful story, told by a remarkable and talented person! It evoked many tears, but was well worth it. Sarah’s journey is inspiring on many levels and has lit a fire under me to do more to ensure equal rights for all.
