|34:10||Same-sex partnerships hold great potential for rising above the usual gender polarity that often devastates the best intentions of couples. Maureen Sullivan, professor of social studies and the author of "The Family of Woman: Lesbian Mothers, Their Children, and the Undoing of Gender," talks with us about her observations after interviewing over 30 lesbian couples about the role (or non-role) of gender in their relationships.

|67:14||To be transgendered adds a significant challenge to the life of any person. When that person chooses a life in the public eye, that challenge is amplfied, and they often become a target for the fears and prejudices of others. Michelle Bruce, born intersexual and identifying as transgender, recently became the first trans city councilwoman in the state of Georgia. At the same time, she also became a favorite target of one highly bigoted radio "personality". She shares with us what it's like to be openly transgender in Riverdale, a suburb of Atlanta, and how she is working against discrimination in both private and public arenas.
Michelle welcomes any help in putting an end to the radio attacks.
