" As a poet I find it a challenge to talk about gender in an adequate way. This spills over into my practical life, and I struggle with defining myself in everyday ways that help me to live my life well. Gordene, I have felt really supported by your presence on the program because of your strength regarding gender complexity and subtlety. Who have been some of your inspirations?"
