LISTEN: Sarah McBride Remembers Her First Foray into Full-Time Activism

In Tomorrow Will Be Different, trans advocate Sarah McBride opens up about the personal and the political challenges that have shaped her life. Throughout the book, McBride insists that our voices and stories are among our best tools for advancing equality. Putting theory to praxis, McBride also narrates the audiobook version of her memoir—and Ms. readers can listen in to an exclusive clip!

In the following audiobook excerpt, McBride reads an excerpt from her memoir that explains her decision to move from activist to full-time advocate, committing herself to the fight for equality by settling down in D.C. with her then-partner to work at the Center for American Progress. On the tail end of a whirlwind year—one in which she came out and found herself leading the fight for trans protections in Delaware—McBride dives into what would become her life’s work.

Sarah McBride is hosting a virtual book signing for Tomorrow Will Be Different today at 7 PM EST on Facebook Live. Click here to join the conversation!
