It’s almost serendipity that Scientology is all over the news with the very public divorce of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise. Many speculate that Holmes left Cruise to escape the oppressive, bizarre religion that she’s afraid would hurt her child.
In recent years, many high ranking church officials have left Scientology due to their the homophobia, transphobia and all around general abuse.
Now, writer and performance artist Kate Bornstein, well known for her work as an advocate for trans folks, queer youth and all misfits is coming forward with her amazing story of being the right hand man of founder L. Ron Hubbard in her new book “A Queer and Pleasant Danger: A Memoir.”
Kate served in the upper echelon of the church aboard L. Ron Hubbard’s gigantic yacht before being forced out, leaving behind her daughter who she hasn’t been able to see in 30 years.
Listen as we talk about the Church of Scientology’s genderless theology, how high ranking members believe they have the power of telekinesis, and why they are losing their grip on Hollywood.
