Description: 

THIS WAY OUT the international gay & lesbian radio magazine Program #715: (hosted this week by Greg Gordon and produced with Lucia Chappelle) Program I.D. #02-F72-00050 ON THIS WEEK'S PROGRAM: Pride and community conquer fear in "A Letter from Jerusalem"; The groundbreaking movie "Punks" is black and gay and romantic all over; Taiwan's "Oscars" embrace out director Stanley Kwan's first gay film, the US Christian Coalition loses its head, activists divided over new Quebec partnership proposal, India's sodomy law is challenged in court, gay Nicaraguan minister to head Latin American churches council, other news * In NewsWrap: Openly-gay Stanley Kwan wins Best Director for his "stormy gay relationship" movie "Lan Yu", which also picks up 3 other trophies at Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards, the Chinese-language "Oscars"... virulently anti-gay U.S. televangelist Pat Robertson resigns as President of the Christian Coalition to focus more on his "ministry" and his Christian Broadcasting Network... the government of the Canadian province of Quebec introduces a bill to create legal domestic partnerships for gay & lesbian couples, but its limitations prompt some activists to call the proposal discriminatory inequality... activists in India ask the Delhi High Court to stop the government from enforcing the country's sodomy law, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison... Nicaragua's National Committee of the Latin American Council of Churches selects openly-gay M.C.C. cleric Dr. Armando Sanchez as its Executive Secretary... and other global GLBT news [written by CINDY FRIEDMAN and anchored by CINDY FRIEDMAN and BRIAN NUNES].(about 10:50) * Even though it's still hard to get a gay movie made and into the theaters, more and more often these days boy does meet boy on the silver screen. What sets writer/director PATRIK-IAN POLK's new film "PUNKS" apart is that the men involved are both gay and black. It's a snappy romantic comedy, but "Punks" plows new ground for queer and African-American cinema. This Way Out's award-winning entertainment reporter STEVE PRIDE chats with the multi-talented Polk about the movie, racism and the writing process.(about 9:30)* When this "LETTER FROM JERUSALEM" was written in August, a terrorist bomb had just rocked the city only blocks from its new gay and lesbian center, The Open House. Unfortunately since then Israeli-Palestinian violence has escalated, with an ongoing series of suicide bombings in Israeli cities and an increasing show of military force in the Palestinian territories. As the bodies continue to stack up on both sides, more incidents have occurred in the vicinity of The Open House and other lesbian and gay establishments. We can only hope that the message of mutual support, community -- and fun -- expressed here by Open House Executive Director HAGAI EL-AD can bring some encouragement to all those innocents caught in the world's crossfire.
