Kate Bornstein, born into a male body in 1948, transitioned to a woman in 1986, and settled into the lesbian community as an author, playwright and gender theorist. However, while she definitely did not feel that she was a male, she also questioned whether or not she was female, stating that her transition to such was because it was the only other option to being male available to her. She launched into explorations of the gender binary and questioned the rigid idea that that only two polarities of gender - male or female - exist. Her books include Gender Outlaw: On Men, Women, and the Rest of Us, Roadkill: An Infobahn Erotic Adventure (Novel, co-authored with Caitlin Sullivan), My Gender Workbook: How to Become a Real Man, a Real Woman, the Real You, or Something Else Entirely and Hello Cruel World: 101 Alternatives to Suicide for Teens, Freaks and Other Outlaws.
Bear Bergman's story comes from the opposite side of the gender fence. Ze was born in 1974, and is an activist, writer, theater performance artist and poet. Bear's work and life questions all facets of gender and gender expression. Hir's books include Butch is a Noun, The Nearest Exit May be Behind You, and now, with Bornstein, Gender Outlaws: The Next Generation.Read more ›
I'm a gay man who considered myself fairly well informed about transgender issues, but this book opened my eyes to issues and problems I could have never imagined as an outsider. From the "Catch 22" of being identified by others as a gender you were never comfortable with and left behind, to being criticized by other transsexuals because one declined (or could not afford) gender reassignment surgery, to the detailed experiences of a pregnant "transman," I not only learned a great deal from this book, but firmly now believe it makes the obstacles that gay men and lesbians face seem simple, by comparison. Recommended reading, five stars out of five.

I had a Kindle copy, but I decided I really prefer the softcover. There are so many authors here of such incredibly diverse styles, messages and formats.
Anything from plays to cartoons to short stories to personal tales.
If you want to learn the many ways one can be genderqueer or the cooler term Gender Outlaw this is a wonderful book.
And unlike Kate Bornstein's classic "Gender Outlaw" this is not an academic book, it's a heck of a lot of fun.
I already sent one to a friend. And the one I bought myself I think I will let my friend keep.
I will be buying this book for a lot of people.
A new classic
