“Beautiful Monster: A Becoming”: An evening with author Miles Borrero

May 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Miles Borrero, an internationally renowned actor, musician, equestrian, and author will be speaking about his new memoir, “Beautiful Monster: A Becoming”. “Beautiful Monster” is described as “A breathtaking, exquisitely crafted memoir about a trans person’s singular journey through breaching the boundaries of gender—across generations, cultures and borders—to become his truest, most authentic self. Nearing the age of forty, with an entire life already lived as a woman—half in Colombia, half in the US—Miles Borrero comes face to face with his father’s impending death. Suddenly realizing that he has been stalling his transition for fear of losing his family’s love, this moment catalyzes Miles’s determination to be fully known as his father’s son before it is too late.”
