National & North: Finding himself, beyond gender

In 1997, Social Psychology Researcher Arthur Aron conducted a study on human connection.

Almost 20 years later it became popularized as The 36 Questions That Lead To Love.

So here in Milwaukee, we chose 8 strangers from two of our longest streets to answer these questions -- on camera.

It’s time to meet your neighbor, and maybe even love them too.

88Nine Presents: National & North

Yollande moved to Milwaukee from the African country Cameroon to obtain her second graduate degree. Her first Milwaukee address was on North Avenue and she now owns an African fusion restaurant on the same street.

Her energy is magnetic, and she radiates love.

Having love and affection for myself, that's been part of my journey.

Ben is a social worker, passionate about social justice and dedicated to helping people overcome personal barriers.

Originally born Danielle, Ben ended a long-term relationship to begin transitioning in 2015.

North Avenue has been a pillar, a pivotal street in getting me grounded in Milwaukee.
