Lee Schubert is a transsexual woman with a lifelong interest in both religion and politics. Active in both areas, she is on a mission to transcend boundaries of gender, race, religion, class, and sexual orientation. As a woman in a male body, Schubert has discovered that gender is not determined by physical sex, and has no interest in changing her body to make it appear more female—unlike most of the male-to-female transsexuals seen in the media.
Schubert holds two degrees in English and has acquired additional education in finance, religion, radio communications, and philanthropic studies. Her background includes involvement in numerous religious and political organizations. She has gained a deep appreciation of the diversity of human experience and encourages others to join in her mission to transcend traditional societal boundaries that confine and separate us unnecessarily. She lives with her wife in Morristown, New Jersey.
