Listen now via our free podcast at www.thiswayout.org
(hosted by Greg Gordon & produced with Lucia Chappelle and Steve Pride)
Everyday activists arise in Africa;
Something "Wicked" this way (out) comes;
James Baldwin is celebrated in a "Rainbow Minute";
Marriage equality comes to three world capitals, vague accusations fuel
a Malawi gay witch hunt, transsexuals fight for their rights in Turkey,
Guyana and France, Sydney Mardi Gras again, and more global LGBT news

- In "NewsWrap": Same-gender couples get marriage licenses in Mexico City and Washington, D.C., and a second gay couple in Argentina weds in Buenos Aires' first... police in Malawi announce a plan to "track down the gays"... human rights groups ask Turkey to curb anti-trans violence, Guyana cross-dressers fight the law banning them, while French transsexuals are no longer mentally ill... some 300,000 celebrate Sydney's annual Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras... and more LGBT news from around the world (written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by MICHAEL LEBEAU and PAM MARSHALL).

- The rainbow echo in a popular musical is no coincidence for "This Way Out's" JANET MASON. Our intrepid literary commentator reclaims and re-defines the show as a gay play that calls the community to click its collective heels together and come home (with intro music from the musical "Wicked").


- For all the bad news we hear out of countries like Uganda, Zimbabwe, and Cameroon, the outlook for LGBT Africans is really a mixed bag. All over the continent, individual men and women are breaking out of isolation and building queer communities. JONATHAN GROUBERT continues with this series on gays in Africa produced by RADIO NETHERLANDS (with comments by gay Ghanian PRINCE MACDONALD, SCOTT LONG of Human Rights Watch, and African gay activist IAN SWARTZ, transmittal thanks to ERIC BEAUCHEMIN, and intro music by SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK).
