In 1986, Bornstein identified as gender non-conforming, saying "I don't call myself a woman, and I know I'm not a man."

Per their website, Bornstein now (2021) identifies as nonbinary and uses the pronouns they/them or she/her.



Oggi ha inizio la Transgender Awareness Week, che mira a dare visibilità alle persone transgender e di genere non conforme e che si chiuderà lunedì 20 novembre con il Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR), una giornata per ricordare le vittime della transfobia.

Per l’occasione volevo quindi parlarvi di questo libro che ho letto qualche anno fa e che sul momento ho quasi odiato tanto è grande la sua capacità di togliere la terra di sotto i piedi e destabilizzare chi legge. Per questo, non finirò mai di ringraziarlo.

Di cosa parla Gender Outlaws: The Next Generation di così spaventevole? È una raccolta di testimonianze di persone transgender, non binarie, travestite, transessuali e via dicendo che sfidano quello che ci hanno insegnato e credevamo di sapere sui generi. Le esperienze riportate sono così varie che è altamente probabile trovarne almeno una in grado di scuotere le nostre convinzioni.

Purtroppo il libro è disponibile solo in inglese (ma dai?), ma provate a dargli una chance, prendendolo in prestito su Internet Archive: c’è sia questa versione del 2010, sia quella precedente del 1994 e intitolata Gender Outlaw: On Men, Women, and the Rest of Us. Se siete avvezz* a leggere in inglese non dovreste avere problemi, ma prendendolo in prestito, male che vada, non avrete buttato soldi!

This should be on every classic gay/trans literature booklist.

This anthology of stories, poems, history, and opinions from queer people just goes to show how diverse the queer community is. Given that each of the contributions is by a different person, they all hit a little bit differently. Some of them I connected to rather well, but others I was underwhelmed by. There were some good points made throughout, but it did not feel as if it had a sense of direction or purpose behind placing the contributions where they were.

I first read this book after coming out as nonbinary almost two years ago. I found it to be super helpful in thinking more in depth about my identity and how I interact with the people around me, and has become foundational to me in my gender journey. Despite being nearly 30 years old, I still found it to be quite relevant and helpful in my own life.
