Inhaltsangabe

“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.

Kritikerstimmen

"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)

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.
