"My boyfriend of 3 years has been going out and sleeping with transsexual hookers? It has been happening more lately. Is he gay? or, is something else going on? He seems to highly sexually attracted to them. Much more than women, but I don't know this for sure. There is usually substances involved. I'm not sure if this makes a difference. I would love to get your opinion or can you give me some references where I could do some research into this?"

Evelien's website:

50:28 Is theatre simply diversion, pleasure for the senses and respite from the toils of life? Our guest Jill Dolan, professor of theatre history, criticism and theory, believes that it is much more; that it is a vehicle for militant optimism. She paints for us a picture of theatre as crucible of change, filling station for hope, and catalyst for creativity in our undertaking the great work of living our lives with inspiration and courage.
