Program #1,123 - distributed 10/5/09

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

A real "character's" true-life tales of "Taking Woodstock";

Saluting gay jazzman Billy Strayhorn in a "Rainbow Minute";

Bill Clinton turns over a new leaf on marriage rights;

A U.N. honcho's homophobia hampers human rights, a gay German pol is

poised for the Foreign Minister's post, registering Tas couples will

stand on ceremonies, a Texas case tests divorce equality, and more news

- In "NewsWrap": The newly-installed president of the United Nations General Assembly, Libya's Ali Abdussalam Treki, comes under fire for calling homosexuality "not really acceptable"... pundits predict that Germany's openly gay Free Democratic Party leader Guido Westerwelle will be named Foreign Minister in newly re-elected Chancellor Angela Merkel's coalition government, while same-gender couples in Portugal await re-elected Prime Minister Jose Socrates' promise to enact marriage equality... same-gender couples in the Australian state of Tasmania will be able to have their civil unions officiated by marriage celebrants beginning on November 1st, Nevada's domestic partners begin to register, while an unlikely battle over marriage rights – and divorce – begins in Texas... and more LGBT news from aroun
d the world (written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by RICK WATTS and GREG GORDON).

- For a man with some of the most highly touted liberal credentials in the world, opposition to marriage equality has become “an untenable position.” That's what former U.S. President BILL CLINTON told CNN's ANDERSON COOPER during a wide-ranging September 25th interview. Clinton cited the legal and political issues involved, but said his own personal friendships with same-gender couples had the most impact on his change of heart.

- We'll "Take the A Train" to honor gay "JAZZ MASTER BILLY STRAYHORN" in a "RAINBOW MINUTE" (produced by JUDD PROCTOR and BRIAN BURNS at WRIR-FM in Richmond, Virginia and read by GIZ BOWE).

- The word "character" could've been coined to describe ELLIOTT TIBER. His book was the inspiration for "Taking Woodstock," a cinematic celebration of the landmark cultural event. Oscar-winning director Ang Lee's movie makes Elliott a "character" in that sense of the word, too, portrayed by actor/comedian Demetri Martin. "This Way Out" entertainment reporter STEVE PRIDE got some behind-the-scenes dish from Tiber about the movie, and the legendary concert itself [with intro/outro music by RICHIE HAVENS, ending with a tease for next week's concluding Part 2].
