Lesbigay "millennials" discuss their future and the equality movement;
"Tipping the Velvet" novelist Sarah Waters creates lesbian history;
A "Rainbow Minute" salutes the 18th century "Ladies of Llangollen";
Right-wing GOP Congressmembers kick the dead "Don't Ask" horse,
South Korea maintains its military ban of gay sex, the U.K.'s equality watchdog wants to monitor future LGBT kids, and more global LGBT news

- In "NewsWrap": Pentagon officials disappoint right-wing GOP Congressmembers by testifying at a House Armed Services subcommittee that training for the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell is going "extremely  well," is costing less than expected, and that open gays and lesbians could be serving in the U.S. military by the end of August... but South Korea's Constitutional Court upholds a law punishing anyone in the  country's military who engages in homosexual conduct with up to a year behind bars... a major new study in the U.S. reveals that little data exists about specific health issues unique to LGBT people, and that more research needs to be done... the U.K.'s Equality and Human Rights Commission wants to survey children as young as age 11 about their sexual orientation and gender identity... the hopes of bi-national couples in the U.S. for more equitable treatment are encouraged and then dashed by federal government officials in the course of three days... and more LGBT news from around the world (written by GREG GORDON and reported this week by BEN CARON and JOHN TORRES).

- Life is already "getting better" for many LGBT young adults. Four Los Angeles "millennials" -- SOPHIE GOLDSTEIN, RAULSTON "EDDIE" HENRY, DANI RACHMANN, and MARIO PEREGRINO -- talk about their role models, their politics, and their visions of the future with This Way Out's BEN CARON.

- A "RAINBOW MINUTE" honors the lives of LADY ELEANOR BUTLER and SARAH PONSONBY, a.k.a. the "Ladies of Llangollen" (produced by JUDD PROCTER and BRIAN BURNS at WRIR-FM in Richmond, Virginia and read by GARTH ELLIS).

- SARAH WATERS' award-winning novels have envisioned lesbian life in distant and not-so-distant historical periods, and, largely due to their BBC television adaptations, have won a major mainstream audience. She chats with "This Way Out" U.K. correspondent ROSIE WILBY about writing romantic yesteryear stories in a very contemporary literary market.
