- In "NewsWrap": A resort executive in Bali faces blasphemy charges for selling the hotel's Hindu cleansing ceremony package to a gay couple that was widely reported as a "gay wedding”… the autonomous government of the British crown dependency Isle of Man begins a public consultation on opening civil marriage to same-gender couples… a public forum on the issue reveals a sharp divide in British Overseas Territory Bermuda, but prompts a union official to come out… Tunisia's Justice Minister announces his support for repeal of the northern African nation's sodomy law… Irish Queers and allied groups win a 25-year battle to march as self-identified LGBT groups in New York City's St. Patrick's Day Parade… and more LGBT news from around the world (produced by STEVE PRIDE, written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by KRISTIN MELLIAN & JOHN DYER V).
- The presidents of two countries doubled down on their homophobia and denials this week: ZIMBABWE's PRESIDENT ROBERT MUGABE has chalked up an infamous record of anti-gay statements and policies. So his remarks on the subject at this week's United Nations General Assembly meeting were not surprising – though he apparently failed to notice the chuckles from the audience. RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN also attended the General Assembly meeting, and discussed his country's supposedly unbiased treatment of LGBT people with reporter CHARLIE ROSE in a web-posted outtake from this week's CBS News program “60 Minutes” (with intro/outro music from "Homophobia" by CHUMBAWAMBA).
- While the truth and fiction of the Stonewall Rebellion has been a hot topic lately, a proposal to honor the actual historic site is gaining steam. Free Speech TV's "Gay USA" co-host ANDY HUMM attended a recent press conference on the plan, and told co-host ANN NORTHRUP what happened when MARTHA SHELLEY, an original Stonewall activist "went Stonewall" (with intro music from "Stand" by SLY & THE FAMILY STONE, and outro music from "Power in the Darkness" by THE TOM ROBINSON BAND).
- And finally, in this week's installment of "The Trials of Clerk KIM DAVIS," what could be the best parody of her story yet has taken YouTube by storm (briefly intro'd by THE DIXIE CUPS and KIM DAVIS sound from 9-3-15 refusing to issue licenses to same-gender couples; "MODERN FUNDAMENTALIST" performed by RENA STROBER, produced and arranged by JEFF HOEPPNER and directed by RICHARD KRAFT, with lyrics by JAMES F. TRUMM based on "I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General" by Gilbert & Sullivan).======================== * ======================="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.
