Politics Doesn’t Have to Be Dire. Meet the Young, Smart, and Openly Trans Leader Making the Future Brighter.
At 27, Sarah McBride has already made LGBT history. In 2016, she became the first openly transgender person to address a major party’s nominating convention, taking the stage just hours before Hillary Clinton. Before that, as an intern, she was the first openly trans person to work at the White House. Now, she’s the first one to write a mainstream political memoir. Out March 6, Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss, and the Fight for Trans Equalitycertainly grapples with McBride’s coming out and transition, but the book is also part of a shift in trans storytelling that transcends gender issues. McBride’s memoir focuses heavily on her political journey and her heartbreaking romance with her late husband, who died of cancer four days after they were married.
