                            THIS WAY OUT
                 the international gay & lesbian radio magazine
                      Program #967 - the week of 10/9/06
         (hosted by Greg Gordon and produced with Lucia Chappelle)
          A comic from Down Under laughs her way out of the closet;
        The man behind the mysterious "Benjamin Justice" is revealed!
    Brazil translates its anti-homophobia campaign for the rest of South
 America, the E.U. champions queer youth but Poland quashes them, marriage
 equality stumbles on the way to California's top court, the Foley fiasco
         forebodes congressional closets, and more global GLBT news

* In "NewsWrap":  The "Brazil Without Homophobia" campaign may spread to at 
least nine other countries in South America... members of the European 
Parliament's Intergroup on Gay and Lesbian Rights launch a campaign to fight 
homophobia in schools, but Poland's government rejects the participation of a national 
queer advocacy group in a youth-oriented European Commission-sponsored program 
to facilitate continental cooperation... a California lawsuit seeking 
marriage equality fails on appeal but heads for a state Supreme Court showdown... 
there's a media feeding frenzy as more revelations surface about Republican 
Congressman Mark Foley's dalliances with male teen pages, as right-wingers gay bash 
and queer GOP congressional aides quiver in their closets... Slovenia's first 
registered same-gender partners are not celebrating... and more GLBT news 
from around the world (written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by KAREEM 
FERGUSON and TANYA KANE-PARRY).

* There is reportedly only one six foot, lesbian, ex-Mormon, diabetic 
comedian and author in AUSTRALIA, and her name is SUE-ANN POST.  Post launched her 
career with the multi-award winning 1991 solo show called "A Bit of a 
Postscript," which was also the title of her first book.  Her prose and poetry have 
appeared in many anthologies, and her long-running column in "The Age," one of the 
country's leading newspapers, was nominated for the 2002 Human Rights and 
Equal Opportunity Commission Print Media Award.  One of Post's most popular 
essays is her own coming out story, which was published in the now out-of-print 
anthology "Inside Out."  She read it especially for the listeners of "Queer 
Radio" in Brisbane recently -- and now for the rest of us [recorded by JOHN FRAME] 
[www.sue-annpost.com.au].

* "This Way Out" continues LGBT HISTORY MONTH with the enlightening new 
series, "THE RAINBOW MINUTE."  This time: poet KATHERINE LEE BATES, whose praises 
many in "America the Beautiful" may have unknowingly been singing for years 
[produced by JUDD PROCTOR & BRIAN BURNS at the studios of WRIR in Richmond, 
Virginia, and read by DUSTIN RICHARDSON].

* JOHN MORGAN WILSON is the Edgar- and Lambda Literary Award-winning author 
of the "BENJAMIN JUSTICE" mystery series, published by Doubleday/Bantam.  It 
follows the adventures of the title character, a brilliant but disgraced 
newspaper reporter, haunted by his past, who now puts his lost investigative skills 
to work solving L.A.’s most complex and puzzling murders.  Books in the series 
include "Simple Justice" (1996), "Revision of Justice" (1997), "Justice at 
Risk" (1999 Lambda Award Winner) and "The Limits of Justice" (2000 Lambda Award 
Winner), "Blind Eye" (2003 Lambda Award Winner), "Moth and Flame" (2004), and 
"Rhapsody In Blood" (2006).  This Way Out's STEVE PRIDE donned his trench coat 
and best "noir" voice to track down the gay man of mysteries, and interrogate 
him about truth, Justice, and the WeHo way [www.johnmorganwilson.com].
