  (hosted this week by Greg Gordon and produced with Lucia Chappelle)
  One final entry in the Frank Kameny collection;
  A disabled U.S. lesbian vet fights DOMA-directed benefits bias,
  a rightwing challenge to California's LGBT history lessons law fizzles,
  Poland's fledgling political party propels a transwoman into
  parliament, the Presbyterian Church (USA) ordains its first openly gay
  pastor, Rio celebrates Pride, and more global LGBT news

- In "NewsWrap": In an interesting confluence of Don't Ask Don't Tell and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), a disabled lesbian U.S. Navy veteran who legally married her partner in Connecticut is suing for the same disability payment increases automatically given to newly-married heterosexuals, while some 200 lesbian and gay active duty troops, veterans and civilian supporters gather in Las Vegas for a first-ever military leadership summit for "out" personnel... the rightwing coalition group opposed to California's LGBT-inclusive FAIR Education Act fails to gather the number of petition signatures required to put a referendum on the ballot... Poland elects Anna Grodzka as its first transgender lawmaker, and the Presbyterian Church (USA) ordains Rev. Scott Anderson as its first openly-gay pastor... four of the nine South African men originally charged with the brutal rape and killing of 19-year-old Cape Town lesbian Zoliswa Nkonyana are convicted of murder after more than five years of court delays... hundreds of thousands mix celebration and politics in Rio de Janeiro's 16th annual Pride parade... and more LGBT news from around the world (written by GREG GORDON, produced by STEVE PRIDE, and reported this week by JOHN TORRES and ROBERT LEBLANC).
- It seemed somehow appropriate that FRANK KAMENY should die peacefully in his sleep in his Washington, D.C. home on National Coming Out Day, October 11th.  He was 86 years old.  A "RAINBOW MINUTE" profiles the trailblazing equality activist (produced by JUDD PROCTOR & BRIAN BURNS at WRIR-FM in Richmond, Virginia and ready by DUSTIN RICHARDSON); Kameny tells how to respond to "morality" based bigotry [with thanks to JOHN FRAME]; he discusses the beliefs that drove his activism during a 1975 conversation with RONALD GOLD on WBAI-FM in New York City [with thanks to the PACIFICA RADIO ARCHIVES]; and "out" news commentator RACHEL MADDOW eulogizes Kameny on her weeknight MSNBC program (with intro/outro music from "The Last Pioneers" performed by CASSELBERRY & DUPREE).
