Description: 

THIS WAY OUT the international gay & lesbian radio magazine Program #719. (hosted this week by Greg Gordon and produced with Lucia Chappelle) Program I.D. #02-F72-00001 THIS WEEK'S PROGRAM:The lessons of queer history lead to cautionary contemporary conclusions; Miami-Dade, Florida prepares to vote on rights repeal again; Strong bias and affection protections pass in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, but East Timor rejects constitutional coverage, and Caribbean Catholic bishops slam a Jamaican sodomy repeal recommendation, state laws to determine gay/lesbian US terror survivors relief eligibility, more news; * In NewsWrap: The parliament of the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais gives final approval to a strong civil rights bill barring discrimination against and harassment of gays & lesbians, while a bill establishing sexual orientation and gender identity anti-discrimination protections advances in the Philippines, but the Constituent Assembly in the emerging nation of East Timor specifically excludes lesbians & gays from protections in its draft constitution, and Roman Catholic bishops across the Caribbean protest a Jamaican government committee's recommended repeal of that nation's sodomy law... a decade-old Washington, DC domestic partners ordinance can finally take effect with the signature by President Bush of that city's annual spending bill, but gay & lesbian federal workers are denied health care benefits for their domestic partners, and financial relief for surviving partners of lesbian & gay victims of the September 11th terrorist attacks will depend on individual state probate laws... plus other GLBT news from around the world [written by CINDY FRIEDMAN and anchored by DEAN ELZINGA & CINDY FRIEDMAN]. (about 10:30) * In MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, where Anita Bryant helped launch organized homophobia in 1977, people may have a chance to decide once again if the area's Human Rights Ordinance should include sexual orientation as a protected class. The question is scheduled to go before the voters in September, but as This Way Out's SUSAN GAGE discovers, supporters of the ordinance are hoping to block the repeal initiative from the ballot -- and to prevent the kind of divisive campaign some of them remember all too well. (about 5:30) * "Not knowing our queer history is dangerous, especially if it leads us to a false sense of security about the state of the LGBT movement." So says lesbian historian JANE WARD, a Los Angeles activist who has taught courses in lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender history and social movements at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Like Georges Santayana, Ward believes that "those who do not remember history are condemned to repeat it," and she shares her knowledge of the past as a way to analyze the present. (about 9:00)
