             the international gay & lesbian radio magazine
                 Program #994, distributed 04/16/07
        (hosted by Greg Gordon and produced with Lucia Chappelle)
            The childhood adventures of a bishop named Vicky;
 CA lawmakers begin a marriage equality rematch with the "Governator";
         A "Rainbow Minute" remembers "Tying the Knot in Spain";
 Pride wins in Latvia but is banned in Moldova, gay dancers are beaten
  at a Jamaican carnival, a Honduran activist is jailed and assaulted,
Washington state creates limited legal partnerships, and more GLBT news

* In  "NewsWrap": A Latvian court rules that Riga's ban on LGBT Pride marches 
is illegal, but the Moldovan capital of Chisinau bans a planned march there, 
and a Moscow official warns that organizers planning to defy that city's ban 
are "playing with fire"... there's been yet another violent attack against gay 
men in Jamaica, a Honduran gay activist is beaten by police who allow him to 
be repeatedly raped by fellow detainees, and two young lesbians escape from a 
month of captivity and beatings by Maoist rebels in southern Nepal... the U.S. 
state of Washington legislates a limited form of domestic partnerships for its 
queer couples... and more global GLBT news (written by GREG GORDON, and 
reported this week by DON LUPO and CHARLS HALL).

* Openly gay CALIFORNIA ASSEMBLYMEMBER MARK LENO is again the driving force 
behind a new state marriage equality measure.  Leno's bill was approved by the 
Assembly Judiciary Committee this week, but can it overcome the continuing 
veto threat by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger?  CHRISTOPHER MARTINEZ of KPFA 
Radio News reports from the state capital in Sacramento.

* A "RAINBOW MINUTE" remembers Emilio Menendez and Carlos German, the first 
couple "TYING THE KNOT IN SPAIN" in 2005 (produced by JUDD PROCTOR & BRIAN 
BURNS at the studios of WRIR-FM in Richmond, Virginia and read by BILL LUPOLETTI). 

* The threat of schism still looms over the worldwide Anglican Communion, 
largely because of the U.S. Episcopal Church's consecration of V. GENE ROBINSON 
of New Hampshire as the denomination's first openly gay bishop.  Robinson's 
extraordinary journey began when he was just a child.  This Way Out correspondent 
VIVIAN MARIE got Robinson to talk about his miraculous birth and other events 
during his formative years that paved the way for his controversial 
ecclesiastical career [www.nhepiscopal.org].
