As the student body president of American University, Sarah McBride already had prominence on campus when she came out as transgender via a Facebook post. Her influence spreads much farther these days. In 2016, she was the first transgender person to speak at a national political convention. As press secretary of the Human Rights Campaign, she’s constantly pushing for LBGTQ rights. And her moving memoir, Tomorrow Will Be Different, tells the tale.
