Kate Bornstein (American author, playwright, performance artist, gender theorist)

* Having been designated male at birth and then received sex reassignment surgery in 1986, Kate Bornstein identifies as gender non-conforming, saying "I don't call myself a woman, and I know I'm not a man", and prefers the gender neutral pronouns "ze/hir" in place of "she/her" or "he/him".

Bornstein has written about having anorexia, being a survivor of PTSD and being diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. Bornstein has chronic lymphocytic leukemia and in September 2012 was diagnosed with lung cancer.

Bornstein and partner Barbara Carrellas live in New York City with three cats, two dogs and a turtle.
