- In "NewsWrap": The ruling Democratic Unionist Party overrules a majority vote for marriage equality in the Northern Ireland Assembly, as a leading LGBT activist group sues for civil marriage in Israel's High Court, while Colombia's Constitutional Court opens adoptions to same-gender couples, but the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints threatens to kick out civilly-married Mormon same-gender couples and refuses to baptize their children… a Missouri appeals court rejects a flagrant anti-gay job bias lawsuit because state law offers no protections against workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation… the largest Jewish denomination in North America, the Union for Reform Judaism, issues landmark resolutions welcoming  and supporting transgender congregants, while Taipei hosts both the largest LGBT conference and the largest LGBT Pride Parade in Asia… and more LGBT news from around the world (produced by STEVE PRIDE, written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by MICHAEL LEBEAU and WENZEL JONES).
- "Truth in advertising" was definitely not a hallmark of the campaign to defeat the HOUSTON EQUAL RIGHTS ORDINANCE (HERO) on November 3rd, and there was little evidence that "lessons learned" from previous electoral upsets were on the minds of its pro-LGBT advocates. Why did equal rights fail in the 4th largest city in the U.S. known for its tolerance — and its three-term out lesbian mayor? This coverage features comments by TEXAS LT. GOVERNOR DAN PATRICK and HOUSTON MAYOR ANNISE PARKER, with reports by JACK VALINSKI of "Queer Voices" at KPFT-FM/Houston; CAMERON JONES of Pacifica Radio News; comments on "Democracy Now! by political reporter JOHN NICHOLS of "The Nation" magazine; and further analysis on "GAY USA" by co-hosts ANN NORTHRUP & ANDY HUMM. ======================== * ======================="This Way Out" is a U.S. tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit under the corporate name of OVERNIGHT PRODUCTIONS (INC.), and is supported by the Kicking Assets Fund of the Tides Foundation, the Yavanna Foundation, a bequest from the estate of Christopher David Trentham, and donations from our listener-supporters.Thank you!=> Please log on to thiswayout.org to add your support [a tax-deductible charitable donation in the U.S.].  We really can't go on without you!***************************************************************On the air since April 1988, "This Way Out" is the multi-award-winning internationally distributed weekly gay and lesbian radio news magazine.
