My New Gender Workbook: A Step-by-Step Guide to Achieving World Peace Through Gender Anarchy and Sex Positivity


“This updated edition of Bornstein’s formative My Gender Workbook (1997) provides an invigorating introduction to contemporary theory around gender, sexuality, and power. The original is a classic of modern transgender theory and literature and, alongside Bornstein’s other work, has influenced an entire generation of trans writers and artists. This revised and expanded edition extends that legacy, offering an accessible foundation for examining gender in the reader’s life and in the broader culture while arguing for the dismantling of all forms of oppression. For fans of the original, Bornstein’s new material merits a fresh read…”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

Cultural theorists have written loads of smart but difficult-to-fathom texts on gender theory, but most fail to provide a hands-on, accessible guide for those trying to sort out their own sexual identities. In My Gender Workbook, transgender activist Kate Bornstein brings theory down to Earth and provides a practical approach to living with or without a gender.

Bornstein starts from the premise that there are not just two genders performed in today’s world, but countless genders lumped under the two-gender framework. Using a unique, deceptively simple and always entertaining workbook format, complete with quizzes, exercises, and puzzles, Bornstein gently but firmly guides readers toward discovering their own unique gender identity.

Since its first publication in 1997, My Gender Workbook has been challenging, encouraging, questioning, and helping those trying to figure out how to become a “real man,” a “real woman,” or “something else entirely.” In this exciting new edition of her classic text, Bornstein re-examines gender in light of issues like race, class, sexuality, and language. With new quizzes, new puzzles, new exercises, and plenty of Kate’s playful and provocative style, My New Gender Workbook promises to help a new generation create their own unique place on the gender spectrum.

    Kate Bornstein is a brilliant gender theorist who puts her theory into practical application. She doesn’t write like an academic. Her approach to a potentially scary topic is at once empowering, entertaining, and informative. Everything she’s published has been amazing, full of wisdom, and practical lessons. If she hadn’t had a cult in her past, I might offer to form one around her work. I call my would-be cult “The Kateriarchy”.

    Great book to start thinking about gender, and maybe your own gender. Kate does a great job at keeping the topic light, considering the taboo nature of exploring gender. Highly recommend it!

    I loved the exercises in this book, the author is hilarious, the illustrations are cute, and the stories and other authors Kate Bornstein draws in are also helpful. I often found myself reading parts aloud to others, or sending them quotes from it. This book is great for anyone thinking about gender, sexuality, themselves, desire, authenticity.
