- In "NewsWrap": A groundbreaking two-day LGBT leadership conference in Beijing makes Chinese history... Ugandan Ethics Minister Simon Lokodo orders police to shut down an "illegal" LGBT workshop in Kampala ironically intended to train activists on how to report human rights abuses, Lokodo then threatens to ban 38 local and international NGOs that he says are funding "homosexual recruitment", but international criticism prompts a hastily issued statement that may be the first-ever Ugandan government affirmation of the basic rights of LGBT people... gay bars in Kenya are reportedly barring entry to LGBT people who can't "pass as straight"... despite overwhelming public support, two bills in the Australian Parliament to open civil marriage to lesbian and gay couples don't appear to have enough votes for passage... a letter to the editor of the Findlay, Ohio "Courier" damns "shameful" bisexual trees... and more LGBT news from around the world (written by GREG GORDON, produced by STEVE PRIDE, and reported this week by SARAH SWEENEY and GARY SHAW).
- "This Way Out's" "Queer Life and Literature" commentator JANET MASON studies "THE LIVES OF TRANSGENDER PEOPLE" by GENNY BEEMYN & SUSAN RANKIN and "TRANSGENDER 101: A SIMPLE GUIDE TO A COMPLEX ISSUE" by NICHOLAS M. TEICH (each from Columbia University Press).
- UGANDAN activist JOHN "LONGJONES" WAMBERE discusses the uphill battle for LGBT rights in his homeland with our STEVE PRIDE (with brief music from "I Am Ugandan" performed by JULIANA).
