"THIS WAY OUT: the international lesbian & gay radio magazine

Program #1,126 - distributed 10/26/09

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

"Out" anthems, cool jazz, and "electroni-lesbi-pop" in the "Audiofile";

Young National Equality Marchers go GaGa in Washington;

E.U. wannabes are evaluated for LGBT rights progress, the Church of

Sweden okays same-gender weddings, Germany's Constitutional Court

orders pensions parity, an LGBT hate crimes bill heads to Obama,

a popular Irish hurler comes out, and more global LGBT news

- In "NewsWrap": LGBT rights concerns are prominent in the European Commission's progress reports on 7 countries seeking E.U. membership, with particular criticism of Serbia and Turkey for failing to protect sexual minorities... the Church of Sweden okays marriage ceremonies for same-gender couples... Germany's highest court orders same-gender couple pensions equality, but LGBT rights are rejected by drafters of Kenya's new constitution, but a landmark bill to add sexual orientation and gender identity to existing U.S. hate crime laws heads to President Obama for his signature... popular Irish hurler Donal Og Cusack comes out... and more LGBT news from around the world (written by GREG GORDON, with thanks to RITA GONZALES and REX WOCKNER with BILL KELLEY, and reported this week by LEIGH MOORE and MICHELE PLEASANT).

- They've been dubbed the "Stonewall 2.0 Generation," and the success of the NATIONAL EQUALITY MARCH seems to have demonstrated that they're here and queer... and not very patient. They coupled the power of online social networking with old-fashioned grassroots organizing to bring some 200,000 LGBT people and their supporters to Washington, D.C. on October 11th -- many of whom were participating in their first such action. The large youth contingent at the post-March rally on the Capitol steps resonated strongly with political activist CHRISTINE CHAVEZ, the granddaughter of United Farm Workers co-founder Cesar Chavez. They also saw themselves in Penelope Williams, a young "bisexual queer" of color from New York City who introduced someone they could really go gaga over (pop star LADY GAGA, that is).

- There are a couple of new "out" anthems included in this month's "AUDIOFILE," which features a Toronto-New Yorker (excerpts from "Love Is Love" and the title track from ATHENA REICH's "LITTLE GIRL DREAMS"), an Angeleno ("Future Street" and the title track from MARK WINKLER's "TIL I GET IT RIGHT"), and a Canadian-Australian duo ("Mama I Love Her" and "Living Out Proud" from SUGARBEACH's "NOT DESERTED") – with comments by the artists, hosted by CHRIS WILSON & JD DOYLE, and written and produced with CHRISTOPHER DAVID TRENTHAM.
