Sarah McBride, National Press Secretary for the Human Rights Campaign, became the first transgender speaker at a major political convention when she spoke during the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. She is largely credited with the passage of legislation in Delaware banning discrimination on the basis of gender identity in employment, housing,insurance, and public accommodations. Sarah has also published a memoir, Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss and the Fight for Trans Equality. The book chronicles McBride’s coming out, her activism, and her marriage to Andrew Cray, a transgender lawyer at the Center for American Progress - and her loss of Cray to cancer just four days after the wedding ceremony.
