"Confessions" of "Prairie Nellie" Alison Arngrim;
Gay Iranian Facebookers proclaim "We Are Everywhere", while Ugandan
"family" groups decree, "Kill the Gays", transgenders have trouble in
the Netherlands but triumph in Australia, the GOP doubles down on a
North Carolina state DOMA, equality for partners is on the block in
Michigan & New Hampshire, "Life With Archie" gets gayer, and more news
- "NewsWrap": LGBT Iranians respond to last week's reports of sodomy executions by defiantly setting up a Facebook page, for those in the country and those who have fled, called "We Are Everywhere", while Uganda's First Lady wants to "Kill the Gays"... Human Rights Watch calls the Netherlands on the carpet for its anti-trans civil code, while the Australian government removes sex-change surgery as a requirement for trans-people to identify themselves on passports in their chosen gender... the North Carolina legislature approves a proposal to amend the state constitution to define marriage as exclusively heterosexual, while Michigan's House passes a bill that would forbid public sector employers from offering domestic partner benefits, and a New Hampshire House Judiciary subcommittee okays a measure to replace that state's 2009 marriage equality law with civil unions... wedding bells will soon ring out in the pages of "Archie Comics" for "Kevin Keller", the most prominent gay resident of the fictional city of Riverdale... and more LGBT news from around the world (written by GREG GORDON, produced by STEVE PRIDE, and reported this week by VASH BODDIE and SARAH SWEENEY).
- ALISON ARNGRIM grew from the smarmy schoolgirl on TV that everyone loved to hate into an LGBT ally, AIDS activist, and a darned interesting person to chat with. The co-star of the long-running 1970s series “Little House on the Prairie” told “This Way Out's” STEVE PRIDE about her gay father, befriending Liberace and Christine Jorgensen, surviving sexual abuse, and being a child villain on TV while living on the cutting edge of transformational times – all revealed in her new book, “CONFESSIONS OF A PRAIRIE BITCH: HOW I SURVIVED NELLIE OLESON AND LEARNED TO LOVE BEING HATED”.
