                          THIS WAY OUT

             the international gay & lesbian radio magazine

                 Program #1,058, distributed 07/07/08

  via the PRSS Content Depot, Pacifica's Audioport, and free online

          downloads at www.radio4all.net and www.indymedia.org

 (hosted this week by Lucia Chappelle and produced with Greg Gordon)

        An Oscar-winning youth advocate’s "Absolute Brightness";

          Gender-queer theatre examines "Standards of Care";

  India’s "coming out party" pushes for sex law reform, firebombs and

  tear-gassings protest Pride in Budapest, Brno and Sofia, homophobic

 bishops inaugurate an Anglican island, disgraced U.S. Senators defend

           marriage discrimination, and more global LGBT news



* In "NewsWrap": Hundreds of LGBT people and their allies hit the
streets of Calcutta, Bangalore and New Dehli in the largest displays of
Pride ever held in India, while hundreds of thousands march with Pride
in Berlin, Paris, New York, Boston, Indianapolis, San Francisco, and
Toronto, but violent protesters disrupt Pride events in Budapest, Brno
and Sofia... conservatives opposed to LGBT inclusion in the Anglican
Communion challenge the stability of the 80-million-member global
Christian consortium by forming the Fellowship of Confessing
Anglicans... two senators with less-than-stellar credentials to "defend
traditional marriage" co-sponsor the latest Republican bill to enshrine
a ban on same-gender matrimony in the U.S. Constitution... and more
LGBT news from around the world (written by GREG GORDON, and reported
this week by CHRISTOPHER GAAL and STEVE LEVIN).



* Gender issues are getting more and more exposure in the popular
media, but that hasn’t necessarily translated into more space for
transpeople to speak for themselves.  Enter the award-winning
playwright TOBIAS K. DAVIS, a transman whose latest work, “Standards of
Care,” found a world premiere home with The 20% Theater Company in
Minneapolis, Minnesota.  He and Artistic Director CLAIRE AVITABILE
spent some time recently with This Way Out correspondent DIXIE TREICHEL
(from KFAI-FM's "Fresh Fruit") [www.tctwentypercent.org].



* JAMES LECESNE is an author, actor, and activist, whose film "TREVOR"
won the 1994 Academy Award for Best Short Film.  He co-founded the
TREVOR HELPLINE, a 24-hour suicide-prevention hotline for lesbian, gay,
bisexual, transgender, and questioning teens.  His new novel, “ABSOLUTE
BRIGHTNESS: THE MYSTERY OF LEONARD PELKEY”, is the story of a boy who
encounters evil and whose magic isn't truly felt until he disappears. 
This Way Out's STEVE PRIDE caught up with Lecesne at the recent Book
Expo America in Los Angeles  [www.TheTrevorProject.org,
1-800-4-U-TREVOR].
