"evolves" on marriage equality, a Northern Ireland gay couple claims
the religious freedom to marry, there's widespread outrage over U.S.
Homeland Security's raid on Rentboy.com, and more LGBT news!

- In "NewsWrap": A local Senegalese LGBT rights group and the global Human Rights Watch each call for the immediate release of 7 men jailed for “homosexual acts” following the raid of a private home in a Dakar suburb… former Australian PM Julia Gillard belatedly endorses marriage equality, while a gay couple sues Northern Ireland in High Court charging that being denied the right to civil marriage violates their religious freedom… the Pentagon reportedly plans to lift the ban on U.S. military service by transgender troops in May 2016… after its 20 years in business, there's virtually universal condemnation of a "prostitution" raid by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on the New York offices of Rentboy.com [with brief comments by CEO JEFFREY HURANT]… 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).

- Gay SYRIAN refugee SUBHI NAHAS testified at the first-ever UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL hearings on anti-LGBT violence, particularly in areas controlled by the ISLAMIC STATE, and then joined U.S. AMBASSADOR SAMANTHA POWER at a post-hearings media conference to discuss the historic August 24th event.

- If your image of "GRANDMA" still involves cookies and milk, our Entertainment Correspondent STEVE PRIDE says a new film with that title starring LILY TOMLIN may surprise you (includes comments by Tomlin, writer/director PAUL WEITZ, and preview clips and incidental music from the film).
