A fierce advocate for youth and “gender outlaws,” Kate Bornstein is a Jewish transgender author, playwright, performance artist and gender theorist. Born Albert Bornstein, Kate was raised in a Conservative Jewish community in New Jersey. She is best known for her groundbreaking books Gender Outlaw: On Men, Women, and the Rest of Us, My Gender Workbook, and Hello Cruel World: 101 Alternatives to Suicide for Teens, Freaks, and Other Outlaws. Her many plays and performance pieces explore queer identity and the rigid binary system of gender and sexuality that reinforce homophobia and transphobia.
