Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss, and the Fight for Trans Equality Reviews
I hope I get to vote for President Sarah McBride in twenty years! She has such a strong and compassionate voice that she has already used in such powerful ways at such a young age. Tomorrow Will Be Different is an inspirational memoir that details the author's coming out as transgender, her relationship with her late husband, and her work in politics and advocacy for equality for the trans community. It's both uplifting and heartbreaking and I recommend it for anyone interested in politics or st ...more
Sarah McBride is such a compelling figure and her story is both uplifting and heartbreaking. She is quick to acknowledge her relative privilege in the trans community and uses it to uplift and advocate for others. I’m sorry to say I was not aware of her before reading this but I will definitely be following her now. Also, be sure to read the acknowledgments at the end. To me it felt like the true ending of the book.
This book gives me so much joy, hope and sadness, all at once. Definitely worth a second and even a third read. But more importantly, this book is inspiring and eye-opening. Also, #SarahMcBride2028 😇
An excellent big-picture book of transgender issues from an equality and legislative point of view. This book demonstrates the importance of excellent writing when presenting events and arguments.
Along with many others, I first heard Sarah McBride speak at the Democratic National Convention in 2016. She was the first trans person to speak at a national political convention.
This book covers 5 years of her life as she comes out as trans to her parents, friends, and as an American University senior, transitions, serves as a White House intern, falls in love and marries her husband, watches her husband die from cancer, and works at the Center for American Progress and the Human Rights Campai ...more
This is the first book I've read by someone who is openly transgender. Sarah McBride offers a compelling glimpse at the world through the eyes of one particular transgender person. With empathy, self-reflection, and confidence—not to mention great vulnerability—she tells the story of recognizing who she was, of coming out to family, friends, and the public, of becoming involved in political battles for LGBTQ rights, of falling in love, and tragically, of becoming a caregiver for a dying loved on ...more
I really enjoyed this!
The writing is quite simple, and at times I wish it had been a bit more literary, but I can appreciate that the writing style makes this more acceptable to people who may not know much about LGBTQIA+ (and specifically trans) issues.
I really loved how much emphasis McBride puts on intersectionality. While she is very open about her own struggles with discrimination as a trans woman, she is always quick to emphasize her own privileges. She reiterates how violence against tra ...more
Tomorrow Will Be Different was an eye opening and heart wrenching read. Sarah's open, honest and passionate writing gripped me from the first moment I picked up her book. I was hardly able to put the book down until I finished. Even though I've followed Sarah's journey and the fight for trans rights in Delaware and nationwide on social media and in the news, I learned so much from this book, and I hope many others will too.
