Transsexual writer and activist Kate Bornstein on her book Hello Cruel World: 101 Alternatives to Suicide for Teens, Freaks and Other Outlaws. Kate overturns the orthodox either-or labels of male / female and straight/gay/bi with her postmodern sexuality of self-definition and fluid identity.

Kate is the author of the highly successful books My Gender Workbook and Gender Outlaw: On Men, Women and The Rest of Us, and her new book takes a transgressive and honest approach to what it takes to stay alive in a crazy world.

  1. You are by far my favorite hero. I love you. Your book saves my life damn near everyday. Ian, if you’re ever in a position to read this, thank you so much for giving it to me. Stay insane.

  2. I loved this show! I’m picking up this book the next time I’m near a bookstore. I’m really surprised I haven’t heard of it before and slightly less surprised, but still disappointed, that my therapist hasn’t suggested it. – Dani
