Hillary engages in a heated marriage equality debate;

Kong but there's little passion for marriage inequality in the U.S.,
Ugandanactivists get last-minute visas for Toronto World Pride, pro-
equalityPresident Santos is reelected in Colombia, and more LGBT news

-
 In "NewsWrap": Luxembourg lawmakers overwhelmingly approve civil 
marriage and adoption rights for lesbian and gay couples, while the 
General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) blesses same-gender 
marriages, but Hong Kong doesn't like gay and lesbian couples tying the 
knot at the British consulate, even as thousands create a Pink Dot for 
Pride in the city's Tamar Park, while barely 2,000 homophobes rail 
against equality at the much-ballyhooed National Organization for 
Marriage rally in Washington, D.C… Canadian Immigration reverses itself 
and grants visas to several LGBT Ugandan activists to attend the World 
Pride 2014 Human Rights Conference in Toronto… the Obama administration 
has apparently gone as far as it can go in extending federal spousal 
benefits to married same-gender couples, leaving it up to Congress 
and/or the Supreme Court to finish the job… being in favor of marriage 
equality doesn't hurt the re-election bid of Colombian President Juan 
Manuel Santos.. and more global LGBT news (produced by STEVE PRIDE, 
written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by CHRISTOPHER GAAL &
 NATALIE PEOPLES).

- Who could forget last week's TEXAS 
REPUBLICAN PARTY platform regression into a revival of so-called 
"reparative therapy"? "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" offered the Lone
 Star GOP a typically caustic Comedy Central "cure".

 HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON may not be officially running for President, but
 the former U.S. First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State's current 
book tour has her running into more "Hard Choices" than the title might 
suggest. One of her more extensive interviews involving LGBT rights in 
particular was featured on NPR's "Fresh Air." It was smooth sailing for 
Clinton's conversation with host Terry Gross through the deep waters of 
transsexuality, but they hit rough seas when it came to Clinton's 
position on marriage equality.
