“I know I’m not a man . . . and I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m probably not a woman, either. . . . . The trouble
is, we’re living in a world that insists we be one or the other.” With these words, Kate Bornstein ushers readers on a
funny, fearless, and wonderfully scenic journey across the terrains of gender and identity. On one level, Gender
Outlaw details Bornstein’s transformation from heterosexual male to lesbian woman, from a one-time IBM salesperson to a
playwright and performance artist. But this particular coming-of-age story is also a provocative investigation into our
notions of male and female, from a self-described nonbinary transfeminine diesel femme dyke who never stops questioning
our cultural assumptions.
Gender Outlaw was decades ahead of its time when it was first published in 1994. Now, some twenty-odd years later, this
book stands as both a classic and a still-revolutionary work—one that continues to push us gently but profoundly to the
furthest borders of the gender frontier.
