Imagine being unable to go into a public restroom in North Carolina without breaking the law. Imagine being unable to change your sex on your state ID, or being unable to keep a job or find housing. Imagine being vilified, ostracized, beaten up, an obje ...more
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 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
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.
It’s rare that I give a book five stars, but this book deserves every one. Sarah McBride has written a seminal text about human rights and the human experience. As a white, socioeconomically privileged person, Sarah does not speak for all trans people, but she is deeply aware of the privilege that has enabled her to get to where she is today, and repeatedly acknowledges that the experiences of trans people of color and other disadvantaged groups are markedly different than hers, using her voice ...more
Like many who watched Ms McBride speak at the Democratic National Convention I was impressed by this open and intelligent woman. I saw her as brave and courageous. I saw her as sweet, funny and honest. I wanted to know more of her story. Luckily last week a friend recommended this book to me. It is refreshingly, shockingly honest. In this book Ms McBride does not shy away from telling her story -- the story of so many transgender people. She shares what is hard about being transgender. But she d ...more
Few introductions in books are worth reading. The one in this book is worth it. It is by Joe Biden (yes, that Joe Biden, the past vice president of the US) and it is very moving. I was almost in tears and I hadn't even started the book!
There are books where the blurb on the back and the introduction is very promising but the book fails to deliver. Not this book. It was a moving story with very high highs and very low lows. I don't usually get emotional over books, but I did with this one startin ...more
Received free from Penguin First to Read, but my thoughts are my own.
This is a true story, so you might already know how it goes. If you don't, and want to avoid spoilers, skip the introduction.
Sarah McBride didn't intend to make history. She simply wanted to be her authentic self. But the first transgender intern at the White House *is* history, so her story got some attention. But she's so much more than that. A tireless, brave advocate for affording all people equal humanity and dignity, she' ...more
