Kate Bornstein is playwright, performance artist, gender luminary, and author of a number of ground-breaking books, including the hugely successful "Gender Outlaw: On Men, Women, and the Rest of Us" and "My Gender Workbook: How to Become a Real Man, a Real Woman, the Real You, or Something Else Entirely." Kate has played a highly visible role in the shaping of the politics and theory of transgenderism.
Barbara Carrellas is a sex educator, sex positivist and pleasure activist, who offers a holistic, metaphysical, practical, humorous and entertaining approach to conscious sexuality.
We talked with Kate and Barbara about the new play they co-wrote, which is a fiction drawn from their own relationship experiences. We also talked about relationships and some of the issues that arise, especially when one of the partners is a transperson.
