38:58 Mariette Pathy Allen, longtime photographer and friend of the transgender community, talks about the transgender community as represented in her most recent book, The Gender Frontier. She has been photographing transgender persons since the late 70s, and her first book, Transformations: Crossdressers and Those Who Love Them, was groundbreaking in its depiction of transgender persons in the context of their own families. Her new book presents images of a swath of transgender community over the past 13 years, including photographs from pivotal political actions, whether in the street, or the office of an elected official. Mariette also comments on some of the changes that she has observed.
