About the Book
In the fifteen years since the release of Gender Outlaw, Kate Bornstein’s groundbreaking challenge to gender ideology, transgender narratives have made their way from the margins to the mainstream. Today's transpeople, genderqueers, and other sex/gender radicals are writing a drastically new world into being. Gender Outlaws, edited by the original gender outlaw, Bornstein, together with writer, raconteur, and theater artist S. Bear Bergman, collects and contextualizes the work of this generation's trans and genderqueer forward thinkers—new voices from the stage, on the streets, in the workplace, in the bedroom, and on the pages and websites of the world's most respected news sources. Gender Outlaws includes essays, commentary, comic art, and conversation from a diverse group of trans-spectrum people who live and believe in barrier-breaking lives.
"First of all, can I tell you how refreshing it is to read a book with the words transpeople and genderqueers on the back and doesn't feel the need to explain itself? Other books may try to coax you to the water … Gender Outlaws: TNG shouts at you from the deep end." Check out this great webcomic review of Gender Outlaws at Riot Nrrd!
