Queer Kenyan rap+Harlem's homophobe+global LGBT news!THIS WAY OUTthe international LGBT radio magazine Program #1,457, distributed on 02/29/16(hosted this week by Lucia Chappelle and produced with Greg Gordon)Kenyan rappers defy challenges to their Same Love/Valid Love videos;LGBT youth activists close in on a Harlem homophobe;Indonesia's anti-queer crackdown worsens, Russia considersforced "treatment" for its LGBT citizens but a trio of U.S. advocacygroups challenge so-called "change therapy" nationwide, childless civilunions pass in the Italian Senate, and more global LGBT news!
- In "NewsWrap" - Indonesia's all-out assault on the lives of sexual minorities gets even worse, with one prominent official calling for their executions… the Russian government proposes nationwide "cure clinics" for LGBT people, while a landmark Federal Trade Commission complaint could put all so-called "change therapy" practitioners in the U.S. out of business… Italy's Senate approves a civil unions bill for same-gender couples only after dumping an adoptions provision… Israel's parliament rejects several bills to advance LGBT rights a day after declaring the country's first-ever LGBT Rights Day… Berlin opens a shelter for LGBT Syrian refugees that will house up to 120 people… and more LGBT news from around the world (produced by STEVE PRIDE, written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by WENZEL JONES & MICHAEL LEBEAU).
- A new mix of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' Grammy-winning "SAME LOVE" could land KENYAN rap group ART ATTACK in jail at any time; an actor in their YouTube video promoting the performance fled the country after the Art Attack remix was banned by the Kenya Film Classification Board. But you can find their "Same Love" Remix video on YouTube – and hear it this week on "This Way Out”!
- PASTOR JAMES DAVID MANNING has been a Comedy Central cable channel favorite, but someone else may get the last laugh on his ATLAH World Missionary Church. "Daily Show" correspondent JESSICA WILLIAMS was surprised to get some seriously Good News when she recently revisited Harlem’s herald of homophobic hate (with additional comments by Ali Forney Center director CARL SICILIANO, and intro music from "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah" and brief outro music performed by the late CORY MONTEITH on TV's "Glee”).
- Like her fellow Kenyan rappers Art Attack, lesbian artist GRAMMO SUSPECT is putting her career, and maybe even her life on the line, to explore the African continent's real LGBT history with "OUR LOVE IS VALID".=========================================================="This Way Out" is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit as OVERNIGHT PRODUCTIONS (INC.), and has been supported by grants from the Kicking Assets Fund of the Tides Foundation, the Yavanna Foundation, a generous bequest by the estate of Christopher David Trentham, voluntary PROGRAM ACQUISITION PAYMENTS FROM YOU, OUR STATIONS, and by tax-deductible donations from our listeners.Please visit www.thiswayout.org to contribute via PayPal.>Thank you for your financial support to keep our program on the air!<------------------------------------------------------------------On the air since April 1988, "This Way Out" is the multi-award-winning internationally distributed weekly LGBT radio newsmagazine.The program currently airs on more than 200 local community radio stations around the world, is globally distributed at www.radio4all.net, www.indymedia.org, to Pacifica Radio station affiliates in North America via Audioport, and in Australia via the Community Radio Network.
