Lito talks about his first date with Hernando and about the various passions Hernando has. They sat together for hours before finally stumbling into the bathroom filled with passion. Lito calls his first kiss with Hernando a religious experience. He compares giving Hernando head to taking holy communion. Lito however from the beginning was adamant that they had to hide because of his fear of losing his career. Nomi relates with that fear but says that there's a difference between what we work for and what we live for. Nomi talks about an experience in a swimming pool locker room where she stood up for herself when she was called a f@ggot. The boys ended up holding her under the hot water, giving her second degree burns. Lito yells out stop it, clearly relieving the event with Nomi. Nomi reveals that the locker room made her the woman that she is because she stopped trying to fit in and learned that she didn't want to be one of the boys. Nomi believes the real violence that is unforgivable, is the violence we do to ourselves when we are too afraid to be who we really are.
