- In "NewsWrap": Indian lawmakers reject the second effort in 3 months to repeal the country's notorious anti-gay Section 377, while the anti-queer crisis in Indonesia gets even worse, and a Kenyan YouTube remix of "Same Love" grows in popularity despite official efforts to quash it … detention of LGBT refugees in anti-queer places creates controversy at Sydney’s 38th Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras, while leaders of Australia's 2 major political parties make history with their presence … a federal judge in the U.S. Commonwealth of Puerto Rico rules that the June 2015 high court marriage equality ruling doesn't apply there because Puerto Rico is not a state … a constitutional amendment to allow people to deny services to same-gender couples because they object to marriage equality advances in the GOP-controlled Missouri legislature … organizers cancel the 17th annual Easter Sunrise Service in the central California city of Stockton to avoid worshipping with accidentally-invited LGBT people … and more global LGBT news (produced by STEVE PRIDE, written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by WENZEL JONES and CAROLE MEYERS).
- Memories were selective as dozens of dignitaries gathered to lay former U.S. First Lady Nancy Reagan to rest on March 11th. Former First Lady and current Democratic candidate for president HILLARY CLINTON shared some revisionist recollections about her predecessor with a national television audience that brought down an avalanche of criticism from the LGBT community, and reaction from SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS, her rival for the Democratic nomination (with intro/outro music from the "Gigi" motion picture soundtrack).
- A first of its kind independent film and a first of her kind transgender actress made history at the film industry’s INDEPENDENT SPIRIT AWARDS on February 27th.  "TANGERINE" best supporting actress winner MYA TAYLOR recounted the rocky road she'd travelled to that night in her acceptance speech, and elaborated on her story backstage.  Our ace entertainment reporter STEVE PRIDE then chats with the film's director and co-writer SEAN BAKER about bringing his vision to the screen (with clips and music from the motion picture soundtrack, including "Toyland" performed by MYA TAYLOR).[http://www.magpictures.com/tanger]=========================================================="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.
