On one level, Gender Outlaw is an account of Bornstein's transformation from heterosexual male to lesbian female, from a one-time IBM salesperson to a playwright and performance artist. This particular coming-of-age story is also a fascinating and deeply provocative investigation into our notions of male and female, the myths attached to them, and the penalties that befall not only those who transgress the definitions, but anyone who blindly conforms to them. Told with humor, honesty, and outrageous flair, Gender Outlaw is the unique story of a transgendered woman who never stops questioning our central cultural assumptions.
