Author, playwright, performance artist and actress KATE BORNSTEIN is a trans icon whose wide range of work over more than forty years has been in service to sex positivity, gender anarchy and to building a coalition of those who live on the cultural margins. Her bestselling books, Gender Outlaw, My New Gender Workbook, and Hello Cruel World are taught in hundreds of colleges. She has performed her solo performance work in theaters across the globe as well as speaking and leading workshops of non-binary gender, fun sex, and alternatives to suicide. As the subject of Sam Feder’s award-winning documentary A Queer and Pleasant Danger, Kate has also had starring roles in film, television, and the 2018 Broadway production of Second Stage’s production of Straight White Men by Young Jean Lee. She currently stars in Travis Fine’s film Two Eyes.
Writer, producer & director of award-winning independent films, TRAVIS FINE does not shy away from challenging or provocative material. The Space Between starring Academy Award winner Melissa Leo took audiences on a cross-country journey with a young Pakistani boy on September 11, 2001. Debuting at the Tribeca Film Festival, Leo’s performance received a Special Jury Award. The film was purchased by the USA Network. The 70’s period drama Any Day Now starring Alan Cumming & Garrett Dillahunt explores the definition of family as two gay men who attempt to adopt a young boy with Down Syndrome. Receiving over 20 Audience & Best Picture awards at worldwide film festivals it was recognized by GLAAD with a 2013 Media Award for Best Film. In Japan the film became a cultural phenomenon with long lines at theaters, huge box office numbers & unprecedented media coverage and in 2020 it premiered as a stage musical. Fine’s current film Two Eyes is a cinematic triptych following three main characters, in three distinct time periods, exploring themes of gender, love, grief, and the power of art to transcend time.
