Paper protections fail South African lesbians;
A salute to a stand-out soldier and those who march in his footsteps;
U.S. and Mexican capitals hear same-gender wedding bells, but an
Argentinean judge yanks a gay couple’s marriage license, college
students flunk the Virginia A.G.'s bias ban removal, the prom is more
than a party in a Mississippi showdown, and more global LGBT news

- In "NewsWrap": Same-gender couples begin to civilly wed in Washington, D.C. and Mexico City, while a federal judge annuls last week's first gay marriage in Buenos Aires, Argentina... students protest a letter sent to state universities by Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli ordering them to drop sexual orientation from their anti-bias policies... Mississippi high school student CONSTANCE McMILLEN becomes a "s/hero" for demanding an inclusive senior promo at Itawamba County Agricultural High School in Fulton [with her brief "thanks for your support" message posted on the Facebook "Let Constance Take Her Girlfriend to Prom!" page]... and more LGBT news from around the world (written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by TANYA KANE-PARRY & RICK WATTS).

- "LEONARD MATLOVICH: DECORATED SOLDIER" is saluted in a "RAINBOW MINUTE" (produced by JUDD PROCTOR and BRIAN BURNS at WRIR-FM in Richmond, Va. and read by JAY WHITE).

- "WHO WE ARE" musically protests the U.S. military's "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy (performed by MATT ALBER & TOM GOSS).[www.popularpublicity.com]
