*Let's Talk Amongst Ourselves*

First, Jon Katherine from the Minnesota Public Interest Research Group (MPIRG) talk about their experiences with the Take Back The Night movement/event, now in its 12th year in the Twin Cities.
Take Back The Night is to empower people to reclaim their streets and neighborhoods from domestic violence, whether it is gender/sexuality or community-based.

Then *Robyn Ochs*, noted activist, lecturer and dynamic speaker shares her take on false binaries and other subjects, including the upcoming second edition of her book Getting Bi - Voices of Bisexuals Around The World, and the phenomenon of bromances.
