      Censorship in Singapore and dynamite in La Paz plague Pride
   celebrations, China's first gay center opens in Hong Kong, Roman

*In "NewsWrap":  Censorship plagues Pride in Singapore, and a parade float is 
dynamited in La Paz, but Montreal celebrants exceed expectations...  China's 
first gay center opens in Hong Kong... Aussie activists are charging the 
Howard Government with violating the country's immigration laws and breaching the 
UN Covenant on the Rights of the Child with proposed legislation to deny a visa 
to any overseas child adopted by a same-gender couple... queer advocates in 
Rome embrace a "Gay Street" kiss-in... and more GLBT news from around the world 
(written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by JON BEAUPRE and RICK 

PROCTOR & BRIAN BURNS at WRIR-FM in Richmond, Virginia and read by CHRIS DALBOM).

* At 6-foot-11-inches, JOHN AMAECHI never had a problem standing out, but 
coming out was a bit more challenging.  Born in the U.S. and raised in Britain, 
the now-retired National Basketball Association center made headlines earlier 
this year as the first male pro basketball player to tell the world about his 
homosexuality in his best-selling autobiography "MAN IN THE MIDDLE".  In the 
first of a two-part conversation with "This Way Out" correspondent RALPH 
RADEBAUGH, Amaechi talked about his early years, his "surprising" start in 
basketball, and his mother's powerful example of succeeding despite adversity.  He picks 
up the story in this conclusion with his collegiate and pro successes under 
the net, and his current social change agenda [www.johnamaechi.com].

* Broadway balladeer MICHAEL FEINSTEIN performs Ervin Drake's "WHO ARE THESE 
STRANGERS?"  Drake says it's his most important song – and he's written an 
impressive list of award-winning standards that include "It Was A Very Good 
Year," "Good Morning Heartache," and "I Believe (For Every Drop Of Rain)".
