Sarah McBride / Tomorrow Will Be Different

March 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Please join us for an evening with Sarah McBride, who celebrates the launch of Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss, and the Fight for Trans Equality.

Before she became the first transgender person to speak at a national political convention in 2016 at the age of twenty-six, Sarah McBride struggled with the decision to come out—not just to her family but to the students of American University, where she was serving as student body president. She’d known she was a girl from her earliest memories, but it wasn’t until the Facebook post announcing her truth went viral that she realized just how much impact her story could have on the country.

Four years later, McBride was one of the nation’s most prominenttransgender activists, walking the halls of the White House, advocating the passing of laws, and addressing the country in the midst of a heated presidential election. And, she’d found her first love and future husband, Andy, a trans man and fellow activist, who complemented her in every way… until cancer tragically intervened.

Informative, heartbreaking, and empowering, Tomorrow Will Be Different is McBride’s story of love and loss, a powerful entry point into the LGBTQ community’s battle for equal rights and what it means to be openly transgender. From issues like bathroom access to health care, McBride weaves the important political and cultural milestones into a personal journey that will open hearts and change minds.

The fight for equality and freedom has only just begun.

Please note: this event will be held at The Bindery, 1727 Haight. RSVP appreciated but not required.
