             the international gay & lesbian radio magazine
                Program #1,008, distributed 07/23/07
   (hosted this week by Greg Gordon and produced with Lucia Chappelle)
     Humorist Kate Clinton changes the climate of political debate;
       A former U.S. first lady's lesbian love letters are opened;
 The P.M. promises to push Irish partnerships, Israeli Jews are polled
  on queer kid acceptance, Hong Kong's highest court cans a ban on gay
 sodomy, Austrian activists are cleared of libel charges, Pride parades
              in Peru and Malta, and more global GLBT news

* In "NewsWrap": Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern renews his promise to pass 
civil partnership legislation as he reopens Dublin's OUThouse LGBT community 
center... a solid majority of Hebrew-speaking Jews in Israel say they'd accept 
a gay or lesbian child...  Hong Kong's Court of Final Appeal upholds a ruling 
overturning a law criminalizing gay sex in any other than a private place, wh
ile the Vienna Regional Criminal Court reverse a libel conviction against the 
leader of Austria's leading lesbigay organization for calling a homophobic 
M.P. a "mental descendant of the brown Nazi minions"...  Pride is celebrated in 
Lima, Peru and Valletta, Malta... will gays have sex in Samoa during the South 
Pacific Games?... and other GLBT news from around the world (written by GREG 
GORDON, with thanks to GRAHAM UNDERHILL and REX WOCKNER with BILL KELLEY, and 
reported this week by DEAN ELZINGA and GREG GORDON).

* "ELEANOR ROOSEVELT'S LOVE LETTERS" are opened in a "RAINBOW MINUTE" 
(produced by JUDD PROCTOR & BRIAN BURNS at WRIR-FM in Richmond, Virginia and read by 
DUSTIN RICHARDSON).

* The irrepressible KATE CLINTON is a self-avowed faith-based, tax-paying, 
America-loving political humorist and family entertainer.  For 25 years her goal 
has been to raise consciousness through comedy, and she's done it during some 
of the most depressing, bizarre, frightening, confounding times in history -- 
and ten U.S. presidential inaugurations!  In addition to her live 
performances, Clinton has appeared on stage and screen, narrated documentaries, written 
for newspapers, magazines and television, and emceed numerous benefits.  She's 
been a panelist on mainstream news programs and hosted U.S. public 
television's LGBT show "In The Life."  The audio version of her first book, "Don't Get Me 
Started," was named one of 1998's Best Audiobooks by Publishers Weekly, and 
her second book, "What The L?," was nominated for a 2005 Lambda Literary Award. 
 Now Kate Clinton is on the road again, taking on the truly good, the 
ethically bad, and the politically ugly.  During a recent conversation with This Way 
Out's JOSY CATOGGIO, Clinton shared her thoughts on "sister" Hillary, the 
power of laughter, and Vice President Dick Cheney’s lesbian daughter Mary
