00:00 Introduction
14:19 Question of the week
" I am sure you have heard this a million times, I am torn. I go about my day to day life as a heterosexual man but enjoy nothing more then coming home and slipping into something sexy and girly. Any suggestion on where a non-passable crossdresser may go to meet someone? Is the gay/lesbian community the place to start? "
(from: Robin, British Columbia, Canada)
" Question: Can a male loose his virginity by having gay sex? "
(from: Red, Kentucky)
" How hard is it to tell your dad? "
(from: Kris Pontell, Orlando)

71:05 When you think of drag, do you think of sequins, gowns, wigs, and heels? Think again: drag sometimes means suits, moustaches, and macho.

Freddie Fagula and Hellary Homosex, with assitance from Reno Durham, directed "Third Antenna", a documentary about the radical nature of drag.
