Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss, and the Fight for Trans Equality

Human Rights Campaign national press secretary Sarah McBride always knew she was female, but because of the physical body she was born in, the rest of the world considered her male. In college she made the decision to come out; she could no longer live as someone she wasn't. McBride shared this life-altering news with her family and close friends, then posted it to Facebook.

Composing her note that day, McBride had no idea how much her decision and her subsequent activism would change the face of the transgender community in the United States. She went on to inform members of the Obama administration as an intern in the White House, affect legislation in her home state of Delaware and beyond, and became the first transgender person to speak at a national political convention. Tomorrow Will Be Different is her inspiring story of realizing her true self and fighting for the freedom of others to do the same.

McBride is candid about her fears and reservations, her triumphs and failures, her loves and losses, all of which drives home her humanity. She points out how her white, middle-class advantages, coupled with the strong support of her family and friends, limit her perspective. But her insights into the legal, political and social battles for transgender equality offer readers a vital, albeit often heartbreaking, glimpse into a community that desperately needs to be understood better. Authentic, persuasive and sincere, McBride's work ensures tomorrow will be different for everyone who reads it. --Jen Forbus, freelancer
