Hey all, just taking a monent to ask for some input from you.

You might have seen the 20 Questions piece on Virginity on the site that we did with Hanne a while back, as it's turned out to be a very popular piece.

That given, I've been working on making a series out of these 20 Questions pieces, and right now, am working on 20 Questions with the wonderful Abigail Garner (author of Families Like Mine, a phenomenal book about gay, lesbian or bisexual parents/families), and about to start on another with Candice Kelsey, author of Generation MySpace, about how teens can deal with how online life can impact their identity, relationships and sexuality.

I have a few more maybe's in the pipe right now as well, but I thought I'd ask who any of YOU would be interested in us doing a 20 Questions with? I obviously can't make any promises, since it's influenced by who I can make contact with and who is interested in doing it, but I'd be totally up to giving a try to who you'd like to hear from.

Subjects should have something to do with the subjects we address here: sexuality, youth rights, reproductive rights, sexual health, relationships, body image, etc.

So, if you've got an idea, let me know! I'd love to be choosing people you're very interested in. Thanks!

I think hearing from Shelley Rabinovitch would be really cool. I don't know how well known she is, but she was my Intro to Women's Studies prof last semester. She was so extremely interesting. A lot of the things we talked about in that class are things dicussed here.

She was Ottawa's first woman radio announcer in the 80s, and is a sexual assault survivor. There's a little blurb on her on the bottom of this page: http://www.jersvision.org/english/services/youthspeakers.php

That was probably pretty random, but I think she'd be really interesting.

Mmkay, just throwing this out there... but how about a 20 Questions with YOU, Heather? I don't know how the other ones work - if you come up with the questions, for instance - but maybe make a thread for forum users to post their questions, and then pick the best 20 to answer?

Just a thought. [Smile]

(Hey Blysse: if I can get in contact with her and she wants to do it, perhaps YOU would like to do that piece?)

And I can do 20 Questions with me: that's no problem. Maybe just start a new thread here for it and invite other users to input questions?

Either we could do it so I could pick and choose, or have it first-come first-served, what have you. Up to you.

Heather, that would be really cool, and I would be really interested in doing the piece. I've never done an interview before though, and I have no idea what kind of questions I would ask her. If you get in touch with her, and she's interested, I'll probably need some guidance (if that's ok).

Thanks for thinking of me for this [Smile]
