Kate Bornstein wants you to stay alive! Listen to RVA IMC's lecture audio!
Kate Bornstein is an author, playwright and performance artist whose latest book is "Hello, Cruel World: 101 Alternatives To Suicide For Teens, Freaks, and Other Outlaws."
Ze gave a talk entitled "Dangerous Dreams and Damned Desires" at VCU on 3/1/07.
The lecture linked society's sex negativity & constrictive ideas about gender with widespread despair, depression, and suicide. Hir talk centered around the idea of making life worth living by giving oneself permission to desire, be, do, and love as one pleases – the only rule is, "Don't be mean."
Kate was kind enough to allow Richmond Indymedia to post hir entire lecture online for all of our benefit!
