Invisible Athletes liberate the locker room;
A gay survivor of 1950s British quack "cures" tells his story;
Lesbians become "chic" at last;
The F-words bomb in Mexico's top court, Singapore's second sodomy law
challenge is heard, Michigan moms await the Prop 8 ruling for adoption
rights, Greek trans-people win hate crime protections, and more news

- In "NewsWrap": Mexico's Supreme Court rules that offensive homophobic 
words such as "maricone" and "punal" ("faggot" in English) are not 
constitutionally protected speech, while Singapore's High Court hears a 
second challenge to the nation-state's antiquated sodomy statute, and a 
federal judge in Michigan delays ruling on a lesbian couple's second 
parent adoption case until the U.S. Supreme Court rules on California's 
Proposition 8... transgender people win legal protections in Greece, 
while Transgender Equality Uganda begins its rights fights in one of the
 world's most hostile-to-sexual-minorities countries... revered former 
Polish President Lech Walesa takes heat for a televised interview during
 which he makes homophobic statements including "a minority should not 
impose itself on the majority", while a notoriously racist and 
homophobic deputy is elected by the Brazil House of Representatives to 
chair its Committee on Human Rights and Minorities... and more LGBT news
 from around the world (written by GREG GORDON, produced by STEVE PRIDE,
 and reported this week by CHRISTOPHER GAAL and MICHELLE-MARIE 

- Efforts to "cure" homosexuality began in the mid-20th century and 
persist in many parts of the world to this day. MARY MILTON and DAVID 
RIGBY of Bristol's "ShoutOut" program share some BRITISH testimony from a
 then 14-year-old survivor named STUART.

- Finding ways to help teachers, coaches, students and parents create 
bully-free schools was the goal of the 2nd Annual Cultivating Respect 
conference in ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA in mid-January. Parents, Families and 
Friends of Lesbians and Gays Twin Cities sponsored the event, and 
partnered with the You Can Play Project and GForce Sports to present a 
panel on the locker-room experiences of LGBT people.  Our correspondent 
DIXIE TREICHEL (from "Fresh Fruit" on KFAI-FM/Minneapolis-St. Paul) 
shared excerpts from the INVISIBLE ATHLETE FORUM featuring moderator 
PATRICK BURKE, who's worked for several teams in North America's 
National Hockey League, and former American pro football star ESERA 
TUAOLO, women's rowing champ BECCA LINDQUIST, and recently "out" captain
 of his Masschussetts high school hockey team NICK KLEIDON.

- A whole new kind of "LESBIAN CHIC" is walking the runway these days --
 "new" according to some fashion magazine reporters, anyway.  
MICHELLE-MARIE GILKESON talks with prospective trendsetters HEATHER 
BEASON, JESSICA CAVINESS, and DENISE DAVIS (with music from "Fashion 
Party" performed by DANIELI LUPPI).
