                Program #1,007, distributed 07/16/07
   (hosted this week by Lucia Chappelle and produced with Greg Gordon)
      "Courting Equality" pictures Massachusetts marital bliss;
               A Ugandan lesbian files a landmark lawsuit;
    Pride-sters are pummeled in Zagreb and Budapest, but thousands
  celebrate in Mexico City, Cochabamba, Guayaquil, Santiago, Bogota,
Panama City and elsewhere, South African activists demand action to end
township lesbian murders, "Dykes" defeat a lame lawsuit, and more news

* In "NewsWrap": Pride season continues around the world, with melees marring 
marches in Zagreb and Budapest, but peaceful festivities in Mexico City, 
Santo Domingo, Cochabamba (Bolivia), Guayaquil (Equador), Panama City, San 
Salvador, Santiago, and Bogota... the brutal murders of two lesbians in Soweto focus 
more attention on escalating anti-queer violence in South Africa's Black 
townships... Australia Attorney General Philip Ruddock rebuffs a letter from openly 
gay High Court Justice Michael Kirby requesting spousal pension benefits for 
his partner of 38 years... San Francisco's Dykes on Bikes win a three-year 
legal battle to trademark their name... and more GLBT news from around the world 
(written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by DON LUPO and GREG GORDON).

* UGANDAN human rights activist VICTOR JULIET MUKASA is suing her government 
for invasion of privacy.  Two years ago, her suburban KAMPALA home was raided 
by officials searching for incriminating evidence of her lesbianism.   Another 
woman staying there at the time was arbitrarily arrested and subjected to 
humiliating treatment.  The Ugandan constitution proclaims equality for all and 
discrimination against none, but Mukasa and her KENYAN friend, Yvonne Oyo, say 
they’ve suffered persistent police harassment because of their sexual 
orientation.  JOSHUA KYALIMPA of "Free Speech Radio News" reports from Kampala 

* "SOUTH AFRICA TAKES THE LEAD" on marriage equality in a "RAINBOW MINUTE"  
(produced by JUDD PROCTOR & BRIAN BURNS at WRIR-FM in Richmond, Virginia and 
read by JON KLEIN).

* A gorgeous new coffee table book captures the struggle to win the right to 
marry in MASSACHUSETTS -- and the reasons that victory meant so much to so 
many.  This Way Out's JOSY CATOGGIO chats with KAREN KAHN, who co-authored 
MARRIAGES" with her partner Patricia A. Gozemba and photographer Marilyn Humphries 
(with intro/outro music from "Marry Me" by THE CHIXIE DIX featuring HEDDA 
LETTUCE) [www.CourtingEquality.com].
