Kate Bornstein to perform at Augsburg College

Kate Bornstein, transgendered author, playwright and performance artist, returns to the Twin Cities to perform her popular one-woman show, "y2kate: Gender Virus 2000" on Wednesday, April 4 at 8 p.m. in Sateren Auditorium on the Augsburg College campus, 2211 Riverside Ave., Minneapolis.

Bornstein's book, "On Men, Women, and the Rest of Us" is currently being used in more than 120 colleges. Bornstein wants people to think of gender as more than simply "male and female." She believes that gender is a rainbow spectrum and everybody is free to explore it at will.

Her performance piece "y2kate: Gender Virus 2000" is a highly entertaining mix of dramatic monologues, slam poetry and gently interactive lecture.

This event is free and sponsored by the Augsburg College Bisexual and Gay, Lesbian Services, Augsburg Student Activities Council, The Sociology Club and the Women's Studies Department.
