"A captivating memoir that will change the way we look at identity and equality in this country. Before she became the first transgender person to speak at a national political convention in 2016 at the age of twenty-six, 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."--Dust jacket.… (més)

Very powerful story. The author has done so much for the transgender community and continues to work for the betterment of the LBGTQ community as a whole. It was interesting to see behind the scenes in the policy and political process. ( )

Sarah's story, both personal and political, is so inspiring. ( )
  KimMeyer | Sep 8, 2020 |
An urgent, articulate, personal call for empathy, understanding, and action on the issue of LGBT equality. Sarah McBride got involved in state politics from a very early age, working on the campaigns of both Attorney General Beau Biden and Delaware Governor Jack Markell. In her final year of college, as student body president at American University in DC, she came out publicly. Since then, she has worked at the White House, the Center for American Progress, and the Human Rights Campaign. She was married to Andy Cray, a transgender man, before his death from cancer.

Quotes

From the foreword by Joe Biden: "all people are entitled to be treated with dignity and respect...Equality is not a matter of 'identity politics,' it is a human right, and an economic necessity..." (xii)

Representation in pop culture is key. It is so often the first way many of us learn about different identities, cultures, and ideas. (10)

Most people are good, no doubt, but when we are faced with issues we haven't yet thought about or interacted with, we often look to one another for how we should respond. Our behavior models for others the acceptable reaction; acceptance creates an expectation, which rejection provides an excuse. (34)

[Sexual orientation refers to who you love, while gender identity refers to who you are: they are two distinct concepts.] (38)

...I was so focused on the transphobia I might face after transitioning that I didn't fully realize just how pervasive the sexism and misogyny would be. (40)

...intersectionality...recognizes that we all live our lives with multiple identities intersecting with one another, creating a mix of privileges and challenges that all people carry with us. (42)

Having certain privileges does not mean that your life is easy or that you do not face challenges. It just means that you don't experience specific types of obstacles or barriers faced with someone with a different identity or background. And our empathy should require us to acknowledge the plight of others in both its similarities to ours and in its differences. (44)

I'm proud to be transgender.
Our identities matter. They make us who we are and shape our outlook....
There is no doubt that society places unfair and unjust barriers in front of transgender people, but that is a flaw in society, not a problem with being transgender. (68)

Principles are worth something only if you stick by them even when they feel inconvenient. (79)

But my voice did matter. It just turned out that I wasn't actually using it...I was ignoring the emotion that was at the heart of my pwn progressivism: empathy. (94)

How do you console someone who knows that they are going to die? (192)

Society can't make me feel voiceless when I know the power of my own voice. And society can't make me feel weak when I know that I am powerful just for being. (238)

"What's your favorite part about being transgender?" My favorite part? Growing up, that sentence wouldn't have made sense to me. (254)

Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss and the Fight for Trans Equality🍒🍒🍒🍒
By Sarah McBride

A journey from self- loathing to self- acceptance to fear about being a trans, nothing stopped Sarah from her goal, becoming an intern in the white house.
Coming out as gay was difficult, but being surrounded with supportive and loving acceptance, not just tolerance made it a positive for everyone. He also has a brother who is gay. And another brother who is straight.
Coming out as a Trans, there was the same love and support from his family, but much of society and many co workers and friends would not accept it. She used this negative energy for positive means, working with and forming ENDA:Employment Nondiscrimination Act. One of many organizations she worked with to fight for acceptance, rights and homelessness.
Until the Clinton administration, LGBTQ people were routinely denied security clearance simply because of who they are. In 2012 Hillary Clinton adopted a new policy for changing gender markers on passports, which was endorsed by Obama. It made identify and proof of individuals identity much easier. As a Trans, even opening a bank account or cashing a check can become a problem. Many are no longer accepted in their families, 40% of all homeless youth are Trans.
Think about that. I did.

I really admire Sarah McBride. Her positive, unending belief in her own future and the future of all people living with societal bias, is uplifting. I have learned and re -thought many of the issues surrounding Trans after reading this book. I feel it is important to have positive, successful role models, who are inspiring, not just in their support to those like them, but to so many that never have any interaction with them, and are therefore quick to judge. Feeling comfortable with who you are opens your heart and spirit to accept those around you that are different than you, but it's not as easy it should be.
Amazing book. Everyone should read this.
Highly recommended
The forward by Joe Biden is absolutely wonderful, and on point. ( )

The author, Sarah McBride, is a transgender woman who is an activist for her community. She tells her story with three intertwining stories, political activism, a coming out memoir and a grief memoir. She begins with her early childhood and her vigorous desire to be politically active. She was raised in the comfortable suburbs of Delaware and her parents aware of her strong interests made opportunities available to her to pursue her dreams. After serving as class president at American University, she made the difficult decision to come out as transgender. Her family was lovingly supportive and ultimately worked alongside her in fighting for trans rights. The rest of the book takes a deep dive into the two years following her college graduation where she was a political activist first in Delaware and then in Washington DC to help pass legislation creating equal rights in all areas for transgender persons. During this time she met and fell in love with a transgender man. Their time together was intense as he was an attorney activist in the movement and she was now working for the same organization. Sadly he was diagnosed with cancer and at the tender age of 24 Sarah became a widow. Her agony over her loss was palpable on the page and hard to read. That same ability to share such an intimate suffering also gave her the words to share her passion and her enthusiasm for her cause. I would highly recommend this book. ( )
