Gender Outlaws: TNG

I’ve just read the new Gender Outlaws: The Next Generation edited by Kate Bornstein and S. Bear Bergman. I’ll write a more thorough review later, and interview them about the book, but for now, here’s the blurb I wrote:

She-males and drag queens and bois, oh my.

Bornstein & Bergman found not just the outlaws but the outliers, the people who have deconstructed, reconstructed and reimagined their genders, for whom gender is not just an identity or expression but the last tool in the toolbox. Gender Outlaws: The Next Generation is a good way to get up to speed on the shifting, new, and created identities of Genderland.

Vive la Revolution.
