Gay Asian Canadian writer Wayson Choy loves extended families;
U.S. evangelicals are tied to homophobic hate in Uganda;
A judge aborts Argentina's first same-gender wedding, a U.N. World
AIDS Day statement condemns anti-gay laws, China's first government-
sponsored gay bar is a bust, New York's Senate rejects a marriage
equality bill but D.C. lawmakers approve one, and more global LGBT news

- In "NewsWrap": A judge in Argentina overrules another judge and blocks the scheduled first-ever wedding of a gay Buenos Aires couple... UNAIDS uses World AIDS Day to condemn the criminalization of same-gender sex in 80 countries, the Chinese government's first official gay bar fails to attract customers, but the 2012 International AIDS Conference will be held for the first time since 1990 in the U.S... global pressure builds against proposed draconian anti-gay laws in Uganda... negotiations continue between the federal government and the Australian Capital Territory over its same-gender civil union ceremonies law, while the Irish parliament opens debate on a bill to grant limited but significant rights to lesbian and gay couples... the New York state Senate quashes a marriage equality bill, but the Washington, D.C. City Council approves one in the first of two votes... and more LGBT news from around the world (written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by CHRISTOPHER GAAL and MICHAEL LEBEAU).

- While UGANDA President Yoweri Musevini claimed this week that Europeans were trying to import homosexuality into his country, some evangelical Christians in the U.S. have, in fact, been importing homophobia into that east African nation. In this brief excerpt, openly lesbian news commentator RACHEL MADDOW discussed those connections with JEFF SHARLET, author of "The Family", on her MSNBC cable show [www.msnbc.com].

- Last time on "This Way Out", gay Asian Canadian writer WAYSON CHOY described his two near-fatal heart attacks, and the friendships that bolstered his recovery, all of which inspired his new memoir, "NOT YET", in conversation with our Brisbane correspondent JOHN FRAME. In this week's conclusion, the now-70-year-old writer expands on his definition of "family", and blames Santa Claus for his collections obsession.

- Promo for the "AUDIOFILE 2009 YEAR IN REVIEW" (produced and voiced by CHRISTOPHER DAVID TRENTHAM) [to fill the "TWO" show distributed on 12/21/09].
