Just thought I’d post a link to Kate Bornstein’s autobiography A Queer and Pleasant Danger.
For those who don’t know, Kate Bornstein is an American author, playwright, performance artist, and gender theorist. She’s known for writing books such as Gender Outlaws, My Gender Workbook, and Hello Cruel World.
This autobiography starts out during Kate’s early childhood, when she was living as a Jewish boy in New-Jersey. Eventually, Kate grows up and decides to join the Church of Scientology. After being kicked out, Bornstein decides to explore her gender identity, moving away from her role as a birth assigned male, into a new life entirely.
I finished the book last night, and I must say, it was a real exciting and wonderful journey. I do recommend reading it. Whether you’re trans* or not, this is a truly fascinating insight into the life of an incredibly unique individual.
