On Men, Women, and the Rest of Us: An Evening with Kate Bornstein

The Sam & Helen Stahl Center for Jewish Studies and the LGBT Resource Center proudly present Kate Bornstein, a Jewish transgender author, playwright, performance artist and gender theorist; model for LGBT+ individuals who are navigating their own understandings of gender and sexuality, as well as a world at large where they frequently are met with hate and hostility. Bornstein has paved the way for thousands of visible transgender humans as they live as their true selves, and has been vital in fostering transgender visibility. “On Men, Women, and the Rest of Us” is the signature performance piece of Kate Bornstein. It combines Kate’s longstanding favorite monologues from a lengthy career in the performing arts with new pieces from recently published memoirs, which include her Jewish upbringing, and writings. Through this combination, Kate is able to create an emotional affirmation for everyone living outside of the societal norms, particularly in the lens of sexuality and gender.
