Trans activist and author Kate Bornstein has released her autobiography, A Queer and Pleasant Danger: A Memoir. In the book she recounts her journey as a trans person and her involvement in the Church of Scientology.
“I was a member of what they call the Sea Organization,” recounts Bornstein in an interview conducted in advance of the release of her book. “This is their top management group.“
“I worked with L. Ron Hubbard directly. I was first mate on his fucking ship.”
Bornstein eventually left the church, which led to one of the most painful chapters of her life.
