                            THIS WAY OUT
                the international gay & lesbian radio magazine
                    Program #991 - the week of 03/26/07
       (hosted by Greg Gordon and produced with Lucia Chappelle)
Pioneering AIDS activist Larry Kramer raises the curtain on "ACT-UP 2";
  British Lords bless anti-bias regulations while hate prevention and
    inclusive sex education return to the U.S. Congressional agenda,
 international rights groups condemn Poland's "no promo homo" proposal
   but Quebec and Tasmania tackle homophobia, U.S. Episcopal Bishops
          reject an Anglican closet, and more global GLBT news

* In "NewsWrap": Britain's House of Lords rejects an attempt to scuttle new 
anti-bias regulations, while bills redefining hate crimes and sex education are 
introduced in the U.S. Congress... the governments in the Canadian province 
of Quebec and the Australian state of Tasmania fight homophobia, but a proposed 
bill in Poland would encourage it...  U.S. Episcopalians defy an Anglican 
edict to stop supporting their queer parishioners and clergy... and other GLBT 
news from around the world (written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by 
RICK WATTS and GREG GORDON).

* LARRY KRAMER, the firebrand instigator of the AIDS Coalition to Unleash 
Power, marked ACT-UP's twentieth anniversary with a new demand for action.  It 
was March 13th at New York City's LGBT center -- the same day U.S. Joint Chiefs 
of Staff chair General Peter Pace called homosexual behavior "immoral" -- and 
Kramer was primed for a fight.  In an almost hour-long speech, the author of 
the novel "Faggots," the play "The Normal Heart," and the screenplay for "Women 
in Love" recounted the many accomplishments of ACT-UP, and detailed the 
ongoing persecution against lesbian, gay, bi, and trans people in the U.S. and 
around the world, from which we have excerpts.  Will activists rally to Kramer's 
clarion call to take to the streets again?  (with intro music from "Power in 
the Darkness" and outro music from "Ain't Gonna Take It" by THE TOM ROBINSON 
BAND).
