00:00 Introduction
16:00 Question of the week
" I'm a 40 year old man that has recently transitioned from identifying as a bisexual crossdresser to genderqueer. This change took place because I moved to the Castro region of San Francisco. I saw so much genderbending that I began to think why not me? Off came the wig, breast forms and make up. I grew my hair long and had it cut for being femme or butch. I can often be seen in a black skirt and comfortable shoes and a lace or silky top. Or a pair of khakis and plaid shirt. Or any where in between. The questions is.....I would like to be part of something bigger to help increase the understanding of what genderqueer is...what can I do....where can I help? also are there others in my age group? "
(from: Rikki, San Francisco)
