Kate Bornstein

In honor of LGBT HISTORY MONTH, the Emily Taylor Center is pleased to present KATE BORSTEIN IS A QUEER & PLEASANT DANGER — the second film in our FALL DOCUMENTARY DISCUSSION SERIES!

Please join us in the Kansas Union’s JAYHAWK ROOM at 7 pm for a screening of KATE BORSTEIN IS A QUEER & PLEASANT DANGER followed by a discussion facilitated by ETC Program Coordinator Megan Williams.

FILM DESCRIPTION:
Kate Borstein — a self-described transgender-dyke, reluctant-polyamorist, sadomasochist, and recovering-Scientologist — is a trailblazing artist-theorist-activist and historic figure in the queer and trans* community.

Author of the groundbreaking book, “Gender Outlaw: On Men, Women, and the Rest of Us” (1994), Borstein paved the way for younger generations of gender non-conforming people. This film follows Borstein as she explodes binaries and deconstructs gender with her characteristic wit, style, and candor.
