35:40 Question of the Week

"I was just listening to gendertalk and in response to being asked whether you identified as bisexual, you said that you identified as human, and also I think you said you identified as a person not in denial. If you don't mind, I had a couple of questions about that. I was wondering what your thoughts are on labeling sexual orientation, and how you came to identifying yourself this way? Also, do you identify with the queer community, and what do you think of that term? "
(From: Allie)
