Commemorating 9/11 "With You";
Presbyterians part ways over gay and lesbian ordinations, British
activists evangelize for equality, Prop 8 pix go on trial, the case
against an alleged junior high school hate murderer ends in a mistrial,
feds harass a "Don't Ask" hero over his White House protest, closeted
U.S. service members prepare to come out in print, and more LGBT news
  
  
- In "NewsWrap": Mexican Presbyterians break with their more progressive U.S. counterparts over the latter's move to ordain partnered openly lesbian and gay clergy... Britain's leading advocacy group, Stonewall, plans to evangelize for equality overseas... anti- and pro-Proposition 8 lawyers battle in a U.S. District Court over the release of videotapes of the proceedings of last year's landmark trial, while a mistrial is declared in the murder trial of now-17-year-old Brandon McInerney, who at age 14 shot and killed his gender-variant 15-year-old classmate Lawrence King... the federal court case against gay former U.S. Army Lieutenant Dan Choi for failing to unchain himself from the White House fence in a protest of Don't Ask Don't Tell gets a 10-day delay after the prosecution objects to the presiding judge's decision to allow Choi's defense team to present evidence of "vindictive prosecution", while some 100 formerly closeted personnel will come out on the day of repeal in the September 20th issue of "OutServe", a new magazine for lesbian and gay service members... tacky shots of his derriere on a website for gay sex seekers come back to bite anti-gay Puerto Rico Republican Senator Roberto Arango in the ass... and more LGBT news from around the world (written by GREG GORDON, produced by STEVE PRIDE, and reported this week by RICK WATTS and JON BEAUPRE).
  
- Hundreds of gay, lesbian, bi, and trans-people were among those known to have perished in the terrorist attacks in the U.S. on SEPTEMBER 11, 2001. They were office workers and executives, a flight attendant and a co-pilot... a gay couple and their newly adopted three-year-old son... they were of various ethnicities and genders, and they were not all U.S. citizens. Other LGBT people who died that day are not known -- like the many closeted police officers and firefighters whose isolated partners grieved in silence.  And there are a couple of names that have become widely known. One is Father Mychal Judge, the Catholic chaplain to the New York Fire Department. The gay Franciscan friar, who's been called "the first victim of the World Trade Center attack," was killed ministering to firefighters. The photo of his body being recovered is one of the iconic images of the day. Another famed gay hero of 9/11 is United Flight 93 passenger MARK BINGHAM. The documentary "WITH YOU" explores Bingham's life and his relationship with his mother ALICE HOAGLAND, a former United Airlines flight attendant. "This Way Out's" STEVE PRIDE sat down with Hoagland to hear more of her story first-hand (with excerpts from "Holding Out For A Hero" by BONNIE TYLER and "Tuesday Morning" by MELISSA ETHERIDGE).
