PUBLIC EVENT:

On Men, Women, and the Rest of Us. “This is my autobiographical signature piece, my most personal stories, my favorite comic and dramatic monologues. An entertaining introduction to the notion of sex and gender beyond the binary – as well as a deeply moving affirmation of spirit for sex-and-gender outlaws. If you don’t mind the f-word every now and then, the show is even child-friendly. Campuses and conferences alike have chosen this piece for both celebrating and increasing the awareness of trans identities.”

Kate Bornstein is one of the leading authors and speakers on transgender lives. The Huffington Post describes her as”

“.an author, playwright and performance artist. She’s best known for her ground-breaking books on postmodern gender theory, Gender Outlaw: On Men, Women and the Rest of Us; and My Gender Workbook. Her latest book, Hello, Cruel World: 101 Alternatives To Suicide For Teens, Freaks, and Other Outlaws, is a runaway underground best-seller. Kate’s books are taught in over 120 colleges and universities around the world; and she has performed their work live on college campuses, and in theaters and performance spaces across North America, Europe, and Australia. Her memoir, Kate Bornstein Is A Queer and Pleasant Danger, [was published] in the fall of 2008.”
