  (hosted this week by Greg Gordon and produced with Lucia Chappelle)
  The U.K.'s Kaleidoscope combines LGBT movements of many colors;
  Cameron's conservatism compels marriage equality, an "evolving" Obama
  is better on soldiers than same-gender couples, the price tag on the
  U.S. House's DOMA defense triples, a landlord's lockout sinks Uganda's
  "strange" Sappho Islands, Belgrade cops cancel Pride to avert
  "blood in the streets," and more global LGBT news

- In "NewsWrap": British P.M. David Cameron tells a Conservative Party conference that "I don't support gay marriage in spite of being a conservative, I support gay marriage because I am a conservative," while  U.S. President Barack Obama keynotes the Human Rights Campaign National Dinner, saying that "every single American deserves to be treated equally in the eyes of the law" while stopping short of endorsing civil marriage equality, but takes Republican presidential wannabes to task for staying silent when the crowd at a recent GOP candidates debate booed a gay soldier serving in Iraq [with an excerpt from that rebuke]... the Republican-led House's modified contract with the D.C. law firm defending the Defense of Marriage Act in federal court triples to $1.5 million... Uganda's only "out" bar for sexual minorities is padlocked by the landlord because it attracted "strange" people, while police officials in Belgrade, backed by the Serbian government, ban the city's second Pride march, fearing a repeat of the violence at last year's event, while police try to separate the activists from the violent counter-demonstrators among the 40 people detained in Moscow at one of Russia's first sanctioned LGBT rights rallies... and more LGBT news from around the world (written by GREG GORDON, produced by STEVE PRIDE, and reported this week by GARY SHAW and VASH BODDIE).
- A gala launch and a September 13th reception in Parliament heralded the birth of a new U.K.-based LGBT organization with an international mission.  KALEIDOSCOPE director DAVID CHALMERS and Nigerian expatriate activist BISI ALIMI were guests of ROSIE WILBY on her Resonance-FM "Out in South London" show to explain their vision of cross-border cooperation (outro music: a live-in-concert performance of "SOMETHING INSIDE SO STRONG" by its composer, U.K.-based gay Nigerian expatriate LABI SIFFRE).
