Kate Bornstein: On Men, Women, and the Rest of Us
October 30, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm CDT
Sponsored by the UWM LGBT Resource Center
“A self-described trans-dyke, reluctant-polyamorist, sadomasochist, and recovering Scientologist, Kate Bornstein has been instrumental in raising transgender visibility.
She is a role model for a generation of people that is learning how to define its gender and sexuality, and survive in a world that frequently greets them with hate and hostility.
When we can watch Laverne Cox regularly on the popular Netflix series Orange is the New Black, or root for writer Janet Mock resisting Piers Morgan’s transphobic narrative on his CNN talk show, we can thank Kate for paving the way. She modeled how we can tell our own stories.” — Sam Feder | Director, Producer, Editor of The film, “Kate Bornstein is a Queer and Pleasant Danger”
UWM is thrilled to have Kate Bornstein coming to our campus this October to share her story through a [fantastic!!] one woman show titled “Men, Women, and the Rest of Us.” This evening with Kate Bornstein will have you questioning the world around you, wondering about your own identity, and thinking about how gender and gender dynamics dominate the world.
