“I was born male and now I’ve got medical and government documents that say I’m female—but I don’t call myself a woman,andI know I’m not a man. . . .”Scientologist, husband and father, tranny, sailor, slave, playwright, dyke, gender outlaw—these are just a few words which have defined Kate Bornstein during her extraordinary life. For the first time, it all comes together inA Queer and Pleasant Danger, Kate Bornstein’s stunningly original memoir that’s set to change lives and enrapture readers.Wickedly funny and disarmingly honest, this is Bornstein’s most intimate book yet. With wisdom, wit, and an unwavering resolution to tell the truth (“I must not tell lies”), Bornstein shares her story: from a nice Jewish boy growing up in New Jersey to a strappingly handsome lieutenant of the Church of Scientology’s Sea flagship vessel, and later to 1990s Seattle, where she becomes a rising star in the lesbian community. In between there are wives and lovers, heartbreak and triumph, bridges mended and broken, and a journey of self-discovery that will mesmerize readers. 

A celebrated pioneer for the LGBTQI community, transexual author and performance artist,Kate Bornstein, offers a pivotal critique of the gender binary that has become a staple in the study of Gender and Sexuality. Kate currently lives with her partner Barbara Carrellas in Spanish Harlem, New York City.
