Day 6 - Sept 1 - Encore: Kate Bornstein

Kate Bornstein, née Al Bornstein, is a male-to-female transsexual. Her book, Gender Outlaw, is one of the defining works on the trans experience. In her memoir, Kate describes her time as a high-ranking Scientologist who was eventually ex-communicated from the Church and cut off from her family. In the 70's, when Kate was still Al, she was a high-ranking Scientologist. She dealt directly with Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, and served as first mate on his private yacht. Kate Bornstein tells the story in her book, A Queer and Pleasant Danger. She spoke with Brent earlier this year.
