Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss, and the Fight for Trans Equality Reviews
Sarah McBride is an amazing woman, a powerhouse in the fight for trans equality. Her own story is beautifully told in Tomorrow Will Be Different. Sarah is honest, forthright, and informative in recounting her journey to bring her from the gender identified at birth to her true gender as female. Because of her political activism, a passion from a young age that grew into a career, Sarah has also had the opportunity to support and fight for gender equality and supportive legislation in Washington ...more
I don’t think I can objectively review something that evoked such a strong emotional response from me. All I can say is that Sarah McBride and her deceased husband Andy Cray are amazing human beings whose passion for transforming the laws on transgender human rights is truly inspiring. I will now get back to my sobbing.
Tomorrow Will Be Different may be the most important book I'll have read this year. This is the one I'll be pushing—er, gently encouraging—people to read.
Sarah McBride's memoir is both accessible and powerful. She shares her own story but she is ever pointing out her privilege and centering the experiences of the transgender community. She lets us in to her life, while also providing a bird's eye view of the larger issues. The result is truly masterful. I particularly appreciated the way she po ...more
The first time I was introduced to Sarah McBride was when she spoke at the DNC. I already knew about transgender people as my daughter had a friend in high school who was transgender and she would come stay at our house and our daughter would go to her house for overnight stays. I never had an issue with the sleepovers. My husband only asked once if we should be worried and allow it. Once I explained why someone is transgender then he understood. In Tomorrow Will Be Different, Sarah does a great ...more
Sarah went to the same high school as my daughter. She and the group of other politically-minded friends she hung out with always struck me as remarkable. Although I didn't have the chance to get to know her well, those times I did come in contact with her, I felt she was someone to keep an eye on -- someone destined to do something great. In her last year of college and at the end of her term as student body president at AU, Sarah came out as transgender by way of a piece published in her schoo ...more
READ THIS. Then tell others to read this. It is not easy, but it is so necessary.
I heard Sarah McBride speak at a conference back in the fall and couldn’t wait to read her book. It was well worth the wait. I cried so many times reading this book. While our president wants to ban transgender troops in the military, I think it’s important to remember that at the end of the day we are all just humans who want (and deserve) to love who we love and live how we want to live. Such a powerful story and one that I think we would all benefit from reading!
Her incredible strength brings me to tears.
