For decades, performance artist and writer, Kate Bornstein, has been exploding binaries and deconstructing gender—and her own identity. Trans-dyke. Reluctant polyamorist. Sadomasochist. Recovering Scientologist. Pioneering gender outlaw.
"Kate Bornstein is a Queer & Pleasant Danger" joins her on her latest tour, capturing rollicking public performances and painful personal revelations as it bears witness to Kate as a trailblazing artist-theorist-activist who inhabits a space between male and female with wit, style and astonishing candor.
By turns meditative and playful, the film invites us on a thought-provoking journey through Kate’s world to seek answers to some of life’s biggest questions.
