LA TransPride kickoff: Kate Bornstien and Mara Keisling
Kick off L.A. Trans Pride 2012 with this very special one-night-only event. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear these titans of today’s transgender community as they discuss a variety of today’s biggest hot-button issues.
Considered one of our times most prolific and powerful voices, Kate Bornstien is best known for her visionary book Gender Outlaw: On Men, Women and the Rest of Us. Her new book A Queer and Pleasant Danger: A Memoir gives the reader an all-access pass into how this incredible woman became the voice of our community.
As the founding Executive Director of the respected National Center for Transgender Equality, Mara Keisling is well-known inside and out of our community as the loudest and proudest voice screaming for transgender equality on Capitol Hill and beyond.
In addition to Bornstien’s new book, these two brilliant and visionary trailblazers will share their thoughts on other important subjects, including: queer spirituality, queer labels, marriage equality, the differences between queer and straight and the power and pitfalls of the word “tranny.”
