                             THIS WAY OUT
             the international gay & lesbian radio magazine
                Program #1,005, distributed 07/02/07
         (hosted by Greg Gordon and produced with Lucia Chappelle)
        A novel depiction of New York City's lavender "Heyday";
   The lingering legacy of Djuna Barnes' lesbian classic "Nightwood";
  Recalling America's first gay rights activist in a "Rainbow Minute";
Canadian Anglicans ban queer couple blessings, Pride prospers in Europe
   and North America, three top reggae singers swear off gay-bashing
lyrics, ex-Exodus leaders renounce "reparative therapy," and more news

* In "NewsWrap": Canada's Anglican Bishops trump supportive votes by clergy 
and laity to ban local congregations from blessing same-gender unions... Pride 
season continues with safe and festive parades in London, Paris, Dublin, 
Berlin, Athens, New York City, Toronto, Chicago, and San Francisco... three top 
Jamaican reggae-dancehall singers sign an agreement with the Stop Murder Music 
campaign promising to stop encouraging violence against LGBT people... the 
British military issues a blanket apology to lesbigay military personnel discharged 
because of their sexual orientation before the ban on their service was 
lifted in 2000... former leaders of Exodus International, a church-based Christian 
ministry claiming to be able to turn lesbigays into heterosexuals, apologize 
for "bringing harm" to those they'd recruited for the discredited "change" 
program, while a new poll reveals that for the first time a majority of Americans 
believe sexual orientation can't be changed... and more GLBT news from around 
the world (written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by SHERI LUNN and 
RICK WATTS).

* A classic lesbian novel – DJUNA BARNES' "NIGHTWOOD," first published in 
1936 - gives "This Way Out" literary commentator JANET MASON time to recall the 
"Mytilini elite" of Paris' Left Bank in the 1920s and 30s (with music from 
"Ain't Life A Brook" by FERRON).

* Chicago's own "HENRY GERBER - GAY RIGHTS ORGANIZATION FOUNDER" is profiled 
in a "RAINBOW MINUTE" (produced by JUDD PROCTOR & BRIAN BURNS at WRIR-FM in 
Richmond, Virginia and read by TOM MILLER).

* According to no less than the "New York Times Book Review," it's "Not 
simply a novel about the swanky, secret underside of old Broadway, but real 
literature -- heart-stopping and soul-stirring."  "HEYDAY: THAT SHOCKING NOVEL OF NEW 
YORK'S LAVENDER UNDERWORLD" author MICHAEL VIKTOR BUTLER visited recently 
with DAVID LEIBIG and HAIR-MAN-DOO on the "Homoradio" show at WRPI-FM in TROY, 
NEW YORK to discuss his book and read some compelling excerpts (with production 
assistance by JOHN DELEHANTY at SCARLET EAST STUDIOS).
