In Transvestia #8, 1961, she gave her name as Joan. Twenty-two years later in Transvestia #108, 1983, she was Fiona. Six years later in 1989 Joan/Fiona transitioned and became Katherine Cummings. She’s been Katherine ever since. She’s the author of Katherine’s Diary: The Story of a Transsexual, which won the Australian Human Rights Award for Nonfiction in 1992, the year it was published. In 2014 she published her second book, The Life and Loves of a Transgendered Lesbian Librarian, which she describes as, “a collection of poems, lyrics for songs, short stories and essays.” Both are available through BookPOD.com.
