- In "NewsWrap": Harare police escalate their war on the advocacy group Gays And Lesbians of Zimbabwe with visits to several of its members' homes, another raid of the group's headquarters, and an order to disband for failing to register as a Private Voluntary Organization... the Australian Capital Territory brings its same-gender civil unions laws closer to marriage... Singapore's highest court okays a challenge to the nation-state's colonial era law criminalizing gay sex... an estimated 10,000 people celebrate LGBT Pride in Prague, but "Gay Hate Day" is "celebrated" in the Cameroonian capital of Yaounde, a ruling party lawmaker calls marriage equality the second "biggest threat to German prosperity", and more LGBT news from around the world (written by GREG GORDON, produced by STEVE PRIDE, and reported this week by WENZEL JONES and NATALIE PEOPLES).
    
- A trailblazing rabble-rousing activist, JEANNE CORDOVA is one of the founders of the West Coast LGBTQ movement. She sat down recently with "This Way Out's" STEVE PRIDE in LOS ANGELES to discuss her new book, "WHEN WE WERE OUTLAWS: A MEMOIR OF LOVE & REVOLUTION" [Spinster Ink, in paperback from Bella Books]. Cordova chronicles some of her adventures in the early 1970s, including a stint as a reporter and columnist with the progressive "L.A. Free Press"; publishing the nationally influential "Lesbian Tide"; and picketing what was then called the Los Angeles Gay Community Services Center after the board fired 16 "dissident" lesbian-feminist staffers for trying to introduce feminist principles and practices at the Center (with musical snippets performed by ZRAZY and ROD McKUEN)[www.jeannecordova.com].
