A native of suburban Washington DC, Kennedy currently lives in Somerville, Massachusetts, with her partner, Kevin Bruyneel.

She wrote a biography, The First Man-Made Man, about Michael Dillon who, in the 1940s, survived the world's first female-to-male sex change treatment and established himself as a medical student. It describes how he later fell in love with a male-to-female transsexual, Roberta Cowell, who was at the time the only other transsexual in Britain.
