Description: 

THIS WAY OUT the international gay & lesbian radio magazine Program #724. (hosted this week by Greg Gordon and produced with Lucia Chappelle) Program I.D. #02-F72-00006 Outsports.com champions queer fans and jocks; Filipino activists confront class conflicts and the closet; The Swedish government and American pediatricians each adopt progressive positions on parenting, a Montana lesbian couple's lawsuit leads to life- threatening arson, gays are again the scapegoat in Mugabe's Zimbabwe, protests grow over more gay Egyptian convictions, & other global GLBT news * In NewsWrap: Sweden moves toward extending full adoption rights to gay & lesbian couples, while the American Academy of Pediatrics issues a strong policy statement endorsing co-parent adoptions by same-gender couples, and the U.S. National Education Association issues wide-ranging recommendations to improve the safety of lesbian & gay students and school employees... a lesbian couple in Missoula, Montana who are the lead plaintiffs in a lawsuit to win domestic partner benefits from the state's university system barely escape with their lives as their home is gutted by an arsonist, while Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe resumes his inflammatory anti-gay rhetoric as he stumps for reelection, and four more Egyptian men arrested for gay "debauchery and contempt of religion" each get 3-year prison terms... plus other GLBT news from around the world [written by CINDY FRIEDMAN and anchored by CINDY FRIEDMAN & DEAN ELZINGA].(about 10:40) * Last time on This Way Out, OSCAR ATADERO, secretary of PROGAY -- the Progressive Organization of Gays in the Philippines -- described the founding of PROGAY and its politics and activities in the context of his country's long history of foreign domination, government corruption, and class struggle. In this concluding Part 2, Atadero focuses on the issue of identity, which is a major factor in PROGAY's organizing strategy. He discusses how ideas about "identity" in the Philippines vary from Western concepts, and the economic distinctions that separate transgender or "bakla"-identified Filipinos and those who identify as gay [produced by MICHAEL SCHEMBRI/2SER-FM Sydney's "Gaywaves"].(about 7:00) * The Winter Olympics are reminding the world of the role of sports in promoting tolerance and good will. CYD ZEIGLER and Jim Buzinski tapped into the fascination with athletics that's alive and well in the lesbigay community when they created OUTSPORTS.COM. It's an online forum for fans and players alike, covering everything from local queer leagues to mainstream professional sports -- and it has lots of people cheering, including "This Way Out" correspondent RITA GONZALEZ.(about 8:00)
