(hosted by Greg Gordon and produced with Lucia Chappelle)
Veteran rights advocate Urvashi Vaid questions the status quo;
A gay "beard" deals deceptive fun in Vegas;
New Zealand is one vote away from marriage equality, Michigan's Odawa
Indians okay same-gender weddings, a civil unions law peaks in
Colorado, Elizabeth's Commonwealth speech disappoints activists on "other grounds",
there's nothing really new at the Vatican, more news

- In "NewsWrap": The second time is one charm away from marriage 
equality in New Zealand, while an upstate Michigan Native American tribe
 becomes the third in America to marry same-gender couples, and civil 
unions for lesbian & gay couples are all but a done deal in 
Colorado... the U.S. Internal Revenue Service revokes the tax-exempt 
status of the gay "cure"-peddling National Association for Research and 
Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH)... a much anticipated speech on human 
rights by Britain's Queen Elizabeth II that activists expected to be 
LGBT-inclusive buries them instead in "other grounds"... "meet the new 
Pope, same as the old Pope"... and more LGBT news from around the world 
(written by GREG GORDON, produced this week by BRIAN DESHAZOR & 
STEVE PRIDE, and reported by NATALIE PEOPLES & JOHNNIE TORRES).

- You could probably argue that there's an "irresistible revolution" 
whenever URVASHI VAID enters a room. From the National Gay and Lesbian 
Task Force to the Ford and Arcus Foundations, Vaid is a veteran 
community organizer, attorney and author known for her incisive 
political analysis. "IRRESISTIBLE REVOLUTION: CONFRONTING RACE, CLASS 
AND THE ASSUMPTIONS OF LGBT POLITICS" is the title of Vaid's latest 
book. She talked in New York City recently with CHRIS THOMAS on WBAI’s 
"OUT FM" about why she believes equality is just not enough.

- Humorist WENZEL JONES had a Las Vegas experience recently that did, in
 fact, "stay in Vegas" -- although he'll break that unspoken vow this 
week to tell us how he went "STRAIGHT TO VEGAS".
