- In "NewsWrap": Research released at the 18th biennial International AIDS Conference this week in Vienna underscores the link between surging HIV infection rates among gay and bisexual men and their criminalization in many African and Asian countries... more than 25 men in Syria arrested during raids of private gay parties in March and April are released without being formally charged... the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission becomes the eighth queer advocacy group to win consultative status at the U.N. Economic and Social Council...  the Pentagon's "Don't Ask Don't Tell" survey takes new fire, while outspoken critic of the policy Lt. Dan Choi is honorably discharged for coming out on "The Rachel Maddow Show" last year... President Mary McAleese signs Ireland's new civil partnerships bill into law, while Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner's signature makes her country the first in Latin America to open full civil marriage (and adoption) to lesbigay couples... and more LGBT news from around the world (written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by JON BEAUPRE and BEN CARON).
- In a year rife with shoot-em-ups and "family oriented entertainment," a unique film about an alternative family is performing quite well in limited U.S. release. "This Way Out" correspondent LINDA BIRCH [from "IMRU" on KPFK-FM/Los Angeles] introduces us to what may prove to be – in the words of one film insider – "the lesbian Brokeback Mountain" (with copious clips from the film starring ANNETTE BENING, JULIANNE MOORE, MARK RUFFALO, MIA WASIKOWSKA and JOSH HUTCHERSON, comments by writer/director LISA CHOLODENKO and co-screenwriter STUART BLUMBERG, and thanks for production coordination to STEVE PRIDE).[www.focusfeatures.com/film/the_kids_are_all_right]
- Three queer musicians are upbeat (excerpts from "Honeybee" and "Freedom Train" from NAMOLI BRENNET's "BLACK CROW"), introspective ("Legion of the Broken" and "Falling Balloons" from KEVIN WONG's "THE PINK IN THE GREY") and back on their feet ("Bliss" and "Married" from DANIEL J. CARTIER's "REDEMPTION") in this musically-diverse installment of the "AUDIOFILE" [with comments by each artist, hosted by JD DOYLE & CHRIS WILSON, and written and produced with CHRISTOPHER DAVID TRENTHAM].
