           The post-"Cabaret" love story of "Chris and Don";

    A bi-national queer couple is forced into Canadian "Love Exile";

   A Budapest court calls rock-throwing anti-Pride protesting "free

 speech," Pride and politics mix in Madrid and London, lesbigay Iranian

 asylum-seekers get a break from Sweden, a leading Malaysian politician

          faces another sodomy smear, a
nd more global LGBT news



* In "NewsWrap": A Hungarian court rules that anti-queer demonstrators
who threw eggs, bottles and rocks at Budapest Pride marchers last week
were merely exercising their "free speech rights";  hundreds of
thousands parade with Pride in Madrid, and an estimated 825,00
celebrants in London break all U.K. Pride event records, while some
government officials are booed for disparaging remarks about lesbigay
people and the U.K.'s ill treatment of queer asylum seekers, but
Sweden's Migration Board rules that all Iranian gays and lesbians who
were "out" in their homeland should be given asylum... former Malaysian
Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim, jailed for sodomy in 1998 but
whose conviction was subsequently overturned, is back in politics but
faces new sodomy allegations... lesbigay people must be "Lovin' It"
that global hamburger chain McDonald's is resolutely rejecting a
boycott against it for being too "homosexual supportive" by the
anti-queer American Family Association... and moe LGBT news from around
the world  (written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by PAM
MARSHALL and CHRIS WILSON).



* While freshly legalized lesbigay wedding bells are still ringing fast
and furiously in California, state-level marriage equality does nothing
to solve the problems of American gays and lesbians in relationships
with non-U.S. citizens.  So like the African slaves of another century,
many of these same-gender couples are jumping on a new Underground
Railroad to find freedom in CANADA.  They get 
support preparing for and
adjusting to their relocation from a group called Love Exiles. "This
Way Out" correspondent HEATHER KITCHING [from "Queer FM" on
CiTR/Vancouver] chatted recently in Vancouver with Nadine, one former
Californian who changed countries so she could finally settle down with
the Malaysian woman she loves [www.LoveExiles.org].



* Have you ever wondered what happed to Sally Bowles' gay boyfriend
after he left Berlin at the end of "Cabaret"?  "CHRIS & DON: A LOVE
STORY" is the true-life story of the passionate three-decade
relationship between British writer Christopher Isherwood (whose
autobiographical "Berlin Stories" was the basis for the musical
"Cabaret") and American portrait painter DON BACHARDY, thirty years his
junior.  From Isherwoodʼs Kit-Kat-Club years in Weimar-era Germany to
the coupleʼs first meeting on the beaches of 1950s Malibu, their
against-all-odds saga is brought to dazzling life in this critically
acclaimed documentary.  Award winning "This Way Out" film guy STEVE
PRIDE spoke with Bachardy, and filmmakers TINA MASCARA and GUIDO SANTI
(with outro music from "To Love and Be Loved" by DAVID BROWN).
