Transgender activist and HRC National Press Secretary Sarah McBride appeared on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Thursday night to promote her new book, Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss, and the Fight for Trans Equality.
McBride was the first transgender person to speak at the Democratic National Convention and has been a prominent force in the trans community for years.
She reveals that she’s always wanted to be a public speaker and asked her parents for a podium and a teleprompter as a child. She got the podium.
McBride, a widow, also briefly discussed her marriage to Andrew, a transgender man who died of cancer shortly after they were married. The couple was well known and deeply loved in DC and around the country. Andrew died less than a week after they were married.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, a friend of McBride’s from childhood, wrote the forward to the book.
