Rather Take the Blame

From Amy Gastelum | 05:43

Public health nurse balances awareness and fear when making home visits in Brooklyn, NY.

-1_small Amy Gastelum is a public health nurse making daily home visits to areas of Brooklyn where crime is still common. Some of Amy's friends and family worry about her safety as she uses public transportation and walking to travel between clients. But Amy has discovered that there is a price for the fear that others want her to feel.

Changing Roles and Rules

From Amy Gastelum | 05:01

Stef Adkins competes in his very first Drag Competition as Barbie Que, juggling issues of identity and boundaries.

Default-piece-image-0 In his twenties, Stef Adkins was in drag a lot. So much so that in the small town of Provincetown, MA his friends and neighbors always called him by his drag name, Crystal Queer, even when he was his male self. Stef got frustrated and quit doing drag. A few years later, he decided to do drag again as Barbie Que but has been carefully avoiding too much time and attention dressed as Barbie, afraid that becoming more public in his drag persona might cause Stef to be forgotten again.

But the rare lip sync act at benefit dinners wasn't satisfying his need to be glamorous. Last April, at 38, Stef decided he was ready to become more public with Barbie Que and he entered the Miss Gay Massachusetts Drag Pageant for the first time, risking losing himself again.

The Bridge Guy

From Amy Gastelum | 06:28

John Mickiewicz maintains and operates the iconic WPA built Railroad Bridge that connects Cape Cod to the mainland over the Cape Cod Canal. He loves his job.

John_small John Mickiewicz loves his job. Everyday he lowers and raises the span of a seventy seven year old bridge, allowing the train hauling trash from Cape Cod to cross over the Cape Cod Canal. He says a good day there is pretty boring and isolating, which he loves.
