34:50 Lisa Davis is the author of "Under the Mink", a mystery-thriller about "New York City in the good old days and entertainers who worked in drag, when that got you jail time instead of a TV appearance." Set in the 1940s, it is drawn from the real life experiences of lesbians and gay men who worked in drag in mob-owned nightclubs in Greenwich Village.
Lisa's short fiction and nonfiction have appeared in "The Persistent Desire: A Femme-Butch Reader", "Sister & Brother: Lesbians and Gay Men Write About Their Lives Together", and "Set In Stone: Butch-On-Butch Erotica", and many more. With a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature, she has taught in the State and City University systems of New York, and frequently publishes translations from Spanish -- most recently in the "Vintage Book of International Lesbian Fiction". "Under the Mink" is her first novel. Other high points in her life include meeting Fidel Castro and almost drowning in the Colorado River.

64:53 Kimeron Hardin is the fascinating co-author (with Marny Hal) of "Queer Blues: The Lesbian & Gay Guide To Overcoming Depression." We talked with Kimeron about the triggers of depression specific to GLBT persons, about the effect that depression has on us, and about specific things that we can do to overcome those effects.
Kimeron previously appeared on GenderTalk #197 in March, 1999. You can listen to that interview about his book, "The Gay and Lesbian Self-Esteem Book: A Guide to Loving Ourselves"
