KATE BORNSTEIN is an author, playwright, performance artist and youth advocate whose work to date has focused on the progressive politics of sex positivism and gender anarchy. Kate currently tours North America, Europe, and Australia, speaking on intersecting systems of oppression, with the aim of helping to forge a "coalition of the margins." Her latest book, "Hello, Cruel World: 101 Alternatives To Suicide For Teens, Freaks, and Other Outlaws"—and the workshops that have come out of it—are life-saving works of love, bridging generations of outlaws.
Other published works include her ground-breaking books of postmodern gender theory and practice: "Gender Outlaw: On Men, Women and the Rest of Us"; and "My Gender Workbook." Both books are taught in over 150 colleges and universities around the world. Kate's activism and writings have in the past year earned her a Women's Award from the Stonewall Democrats of New York City, and two "Outstanding Citizen" citations from The New York City Council.
