Singer/songwriter Joe Stevens transposes gender keys;
There's style and stylin' for hate and hope;
All about a mentor to several gay composers in a "Rainbow Minute";
Botswana recognizes lesbigay rights, homophobic Nigerian vigilantes
claim 25 busts, Saudis jail a gay social media nudist, New South Wales
passes a "bring your own marriage" bill, and more global LGBT news!

- In "NewsWrap": Lesbians, Gays and Bisexuals of Botswana win the legal right to exist, but Nigerian vigilantes say they've taken 25 gay men into custody and turned them over to authorities for violating Islamic law; a Saudi Arabian gay man gets a 3 year sentence for posting his nude photos and offering free gay sex on social media sites, and the owner of "Gayway", an ostensibly gay Asian news and entertainment website based in Taiwan's capital of Taipei, faces up to 2 years in jail for posting "obscene" pictures to promote his gay erotic massage parlor… New South Wales becomes Australia's third state to recognize the civil marriages of same-gender couples legally performed elsewhere;  the push for US marriage equality makes news this week in South Carolina, Kansas, Mississippi, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Michigan…  new Mexico City legislation allows trans people to change the gender designation on their birth certificates without medical examinations or court orders… "Sex Change Day" teaches students at a Japanese high school a valuable lesson… and more LGBT news from around the world (produced this week by WENZEL JONES & STEVE PRIDE, written by GREG GORDON, and reported by CAROLE MEYERS and WENZEL JONES).

- "THE GREAT MADEMOISELLE", who mentored several gay composers, is profiled in a "RAINBOW MINUTE" (read by JOHN DEBOER and produced by JUDD PROCTOR & BRIAN BURNS at WRIR-FM in Richmond, Virginia).

- Banjo-picking trans-man JOE STEVENS has a passion for storytelling, and it's the backbone of his music. He shares his own narrative with correspondent DIXIE TRIECHEL [from "Fresh Fruit" on KFAI-FM/Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota) – but not before we sample the title cut of his new solo CD, "LAST MAN STANDING" [joestevensmusic.com].

- If the ridiculous to the sublime is your thing, we've got two very different takes on sexuality and gender to close the show this week. A rapping 8-year-old transboy from a summer camp for gender-variant youth will provide the sublime – after Jehovah’s Witnesses Governing Body member ANTHONY MORRIS III brings us the ridiculous in an excerpt from a sermon titled "Is Your Family a Spiritual Family?" The difference between "spanx" and "spandex" is not the only thing Morris is confused about.
