A message from sixth&i about an upcoming book event:
On Wednesday, November 30 at 7:00 pm, sixth&i is hosting an event with the celebrated transgender trailblazer, Kate Bornstein, who will discuss the updated edition of her book Gender Outlaw: On Men, Women, and the Rest of Us. Profoundly ahead of its time when it was originally published in 1994, Gender Outlaw is the first book of gender theory written by a trans person.
Kate, who has recurring appearances on Caitlyn Jenner's show "I Am Cait," was assigned male at birth and underwent gender confirmation surgery at age thirty-eight in 1986 to become a woman. She later came to realize that, at her core, she identified as neither male nor female. So she began to wonder: what if there are not two genders, but a whole spectrum? What if the gender binary is not only restricting trans people, but anyone who has ever felt like less than a perfect man or woman?
We hope you will join for a night of meaningful conversation as Kate shares personal insights and outlines her investigation into our notions of gender.
