She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Author Reading: Queer and Pleasant Danger

Kate Bornstein, who was born a Jewish man, became a scientologist, and then transitioned to become a woman, will be reading from her memoir Queer and Pleasant Danger. To quote The Stranger, “As a man, [Bornstein] served as lieutenant on the flagship vessel in the Church of Scientology’s mighty fleet. Now, she’s a lesbian playwright known for her piercing, funny autobiographical pieces. Queer and Pleasant Danger is her newest book, an account of the wild, weird, and terrible things that happened to her along the way.” Sounds fascinating, right?

When: August 11, 7PM

Where: Elliot Bay Book Company, 1521 10th Ave

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
