Kate Bornstein needs help

Damn, this sucks, just saw it on [url=http://slog.thestranger.com/slog/archives/2013/03/22/sl-letter-of-the-da... Savage's blog[/url]. Activist Kate Bornstein, author of some truly amazing books (such as Gender OutlawsMy Gender Workbook and Hello, Cruel World: 101 Alternatives to Suicide for Teens, Freaks, and Other Outlaws) has two types of cancer.  And not a lot of money, guess being an amazing queer/trans activist gig doesn't rake in a lot of cash.

There's a website for people to help support her and I just popped over there. The really good news is that in two days they've raised $70K!

If you're familiar with and/or admire Kate's work and have some spare cash, I'd encourage a donation (I checked out the site and it's a secure donations page). And please spread the word ...

Here's her contribution to [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JxhZJJAGjW0]It Gets Better[/url]. Here's some of her writing. http://katebornstein.typepad.com/

That's really unfortunate. We have a copy of her "My Gender Workbook". Fun book.
