Kate Bornstein has lent her voice and much of her life to advocating for and educating the masses about diverse gender identities and expressions. She is a groundbreaking author, performer and “advocate for teens, freaks and other outlaws” whose books, like My Gender Workbook and Gender Outlaw, have been critical to furthering gender theory over the last 20 years.

Sadly, the self-described “queer and pleasant danger” was diagnosed with lung cancer in August. Doctors thought Bornstein had been cured after surgery, but in February they discovered that the disease had returned. To make matters even worse, her treatment is more complicated than most because she has suffered from another kind of cancer — CLL, or Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia — for over fifteen years. The good news is, despite astronomical costs, the cancer appears to be treatable.
