Interview with Katherine Cummings


Monika: Today it is my pleasure and honour to interview Katherine Cummings, an icon of the Australian transgender movement, librarian, sailor, activist for transgender people, award-winning author; she works at Sydney’s Gender Centre – an organisation set up in 1983 to help people with gender issues – and is the information worker and edits the Centre’s quarterly magazine Polare. Hello Katherine!
Katherine: Hello Monika. I am honoured (and flattered) by your introduction. You could just have said, as Deirdre McCloskey did in her book, Crossing, that I am a gender saint (please don’t guffaw too loudly).
Monika: Could you say a few words about yourself?
Katherine: If there is such a thing I’d say I am a fairly typical transgender. My wish to be female goes back as far as memories go but I only found out that my impossible dream could be a possible dream when I was seventeen, in my first year at university, when Christine Jorgensen was outed. Up to that point I had known about gay people, female impersonators and intersex (although we didn’t call them intersex in 1952) and knew I was none of those things.
