More About Gender Outlaw
The term gender outlaw was coined by Kate Bornstein in her book Gender Outlaw. It was released in 1995. The book investigates gender and how we think about gender as a society, gender roles, and gender identity. Gender outlaws might also be referred to as gender non-conforming individuals or those that choose not to be defined by conventional gender standards.
