A peaceful Pride makes Belgrade happy, Pride also swells in Hong Kong and
Munich but a ban in Montenegro raises E.U. questions, Britain's Jersey gets a
marriage equality proposal, anti-gay US House Speaker John Boehner
bids his broken Congress adieu, and more global news!

- In "NewsWrap": LGBT activists and supporters hold a first time-ever "happy" Pride march in the Serbian capital of Belgrade, while record crowds are "pretty in pink" at the second annual Pink Dot festival in Hong Kong's Tamar Park, and revelers celebrate Gay Oktoberfest in Munich, but police ban a Pride march in the Montenegrin city of Niksic for the third time this year… lawmakers in the British Channel Island of Jersey accept a government proposal to open civil marriage to same-gender couples, and Germany's non-legislating Upper House resolves in favor of marriage equality… the While House hosts an advocates conference to kick off Bisexual Awareness Week in the U.S… anti-gay Ohio Republican John Boehner surprises the political establishment by announcing his resignation as Speaker of the House and from his Congressional seat [with brief archival comments by Boehner and a musical "buh-bye”]… and more LGBT news from around the world (produced by STEVE PRIDE, written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by JOHN DYER V and TANYA KANE-PARRY).

- The 67th annual PRIMETIME EMMY AWARDS added a slew of highlights to the U.S. television history books at the industry's September 20th celebration in Los Angeles – with many moments boasting a rainbow flare: host ANDY SAMBERG's opening monologue about some of the season's upcoming shows included digs at a supposedly "ex-racist" celebrity chef and an infamous Rowan County, Kentucky Clerk; "Olive Kitteridge" writer/producer JANE ANDERSON and director LISA CHOLODENKO – both out lesbians – each took home a trophy in her category for Best Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special; the winner for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, JILL SOLOWAY, credited her own family for inspiring "Transparent", the Amazon show about a woman belatedly in transition and her struggling-to-be-supportive adult children; and after 7 previous nominations, JEFFREY TAMBOR, who finally took home Emmy gold for his starring role as "Maura Pfefferman" in "Transparent", paid tribute to the community that inspires his performance (with intro/outro music from the "Transparent" TV theme).

- An orthodox Anglican spokesperson ran into a broadcast buzz saw this week during an interview on Britain's LBC radio about the upcoming showdown on homosexuality and women in the church. The blowout followed last week's announcement by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby that a January meeting of leaders from the worldwide Communion's 38 national churches could be the last chance to avoid total schism. That prompted openly gay LBC radio host IAIN DALE to invite DAVID VIRTUE of the independent Anglican website "Virtue Online" to discuss the issues. However, it became clear early on that Dale would not make it easy for Virtue.
