About the Author

Kate Bornstein divides their time between New York City and the Rhode Island shore. She can be seen in all episodes of Season 2 of the reality TV show I Am Cait. Their stage work includes the solo performance pieces The Opposite Sex Is Neither, Virtually Yours, and On Men, Women, and the Rest of Us. When not writing or performing, Kate can be found cuddling with Maui, following Doctor Who, prowling Twitter and Instagram, or playing pinball in their hometown of Asbury Park, New Jersey.

Reviews

Bornstein considers herself a gender outlaw because she breaks the laws of nature. A former heterosexual male and now a lesbian woman, Bay Area Reporter writer, and actor who has appeared on talk shows, she has completed the transsexual process, including surgery. As she considers her workplace the theater, about a third of this autobiographical work is devoted to queer theater, including her play, Hidden: A Gender. The black-and-white photos were not seen but are apparently a significant part of this informative and humorous book.

In an age of often hostilely expressed gender politics, Kate Bornstein . . . is sweet, sincere, lucid, and sometimes as corny as Kansas in August.
The New York Times
A foundational voice. . . . Kate Bornstein is a historic figure in the queer and trans community.
The Huffington Post
[Bornstein is on the] leading edge of contemporary debate about sexual identity and gender. [She] asks fundamental and challenging questions about what it means to be a man or woman in our society.
San Francisco Chronicle
Gender Outlaw is an eye-opening book, combining the emotional force of a coming-of-age story with a savvy cultural critique.
Out

A radical document.
The Nation
While Bornstein covers an incredible range from the nuts and bolts of her surgery to more abstract musings on a brave new gender-free world the book never stops fascinating. [She offers us] an abundance of questions thoughtful, disarming, revelatory questions. Gender Outlaw is an invitation to a dialogue, and it s a conversation well worth having.

Leslie Feinberg, author of Stone Butch Blues
The first book of gender theory written by a transgendered person . . . includes countless insights, trenchant cultural analysis, and generous wit. . . . [It] will surely become a classic.
Washington Blade
Kate Bornstein celebrates the power of claiming an identity without getting mired in the tarpits of identity politics. A breath of fresh air, the best of both worlds, strong enough for a man, yet made for a woman.
