             the international gay & lesbian radio magazine
                Program #1,011, distributed 08/13/07
  (hosted this week by Greg Gordon and produced with Lucia Chappelle)
  A historic queer forum brings buzz to the U.S. presidential campaign;
    Profiling U.S. Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin in a "Rainbow Minute";
    Amsterdam Pride sails, protestors temper Tallinn's, and Vancouver
   honors a Warsaw warrior, but Singapore police quash a Pride picnic,
 18 Nigerian men face sodomy executions, a Nicaraguan refugee loses his
             Canadian asylum bid, and more global GLBT news

* In "NewsWrap": Up to 500,000 people celebrate Pride in Amsterdam, about 300 
brave a counter-march in Tallinn, and a Warsaw organizer leads the march 
before more than 385,000 in Vancouver, but the government continues to shut down 
Pride events in Singapore... 18 men face death by stoning following their 
sodomy convictions under Islamic law in northern Nigeria, while draconian 
legislation outlawing any civil rights for gays and lesbians is reportedly still being 
considered by the country's newly-elected legislature... Canada's Immigration 
Board orders 21-year-old gay Nicaraguan national Alvaro Orozco deported even 
though he faces life-threatening persecution in his homeland... and more GLBT 
news from around the world (written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by 
CHRISTOPHER GAAL and DON LUPO).

* "TAMMY BALDWIN - THE FIRST OUT LESBIAN ELECTED TO CONGRESS" is profiled in 
this "RAINBOW MINUTE" (produced by JUDD PROCTOR & BRIAN BURNS at WRIR-FM in 
Richmond, Virginia and read by DIANA WESTBROOK).

* It wasn't that many U.S. presidential campaigns ago when any association 
between a candidate and the LGBT communities would have been the kiss of death.  
But the Human Rights Campaign brought American politics another step into the 
21st Century on August 9th with an LGBT issues forum featuring all but two of 
the Democratic contenders for the White House.  Senators Joe Biden and Chris 
Dodd cited scheduling conflicts.  Republican candidates were also invited, but 
each either declined or ignored the challenge.  The 2-hour event was 
co-sponsored and televised live by the LOGO cable television channel.  Bloomberg News 
commentator MARGARET CARLSON served as moderator, and each presidential 
hopeful in turn faced questions from a panel consisting of JONATHAN CAPEHART of the 
Washington Post, lesbian rock icon MELISSA ETHERIDGE, and HRC Executive 
Director JOE SOLMONESE.  On this week’s program and "This Way Out" programs in the 
next two weeks, we'll highlight the responses of all six participants in this 
historic event, and reactions to them.  This week: NEW MEXICO GOVERNOR BILL 
RICHARDSON and former U.S. SENATOR from ALASKA MIKE GRAVEL.
