Description: 

THIS WAY OUT the international gay & lesbian radio magazine Program #730. (hosted this week by Greg Gordon and produced with Lucia Chappelle) Program I.D. #02-F72-00012 Romance, rock and rights in words & music from this month's "AudioFile"; San Francisco finally christens a queer community center; An Australian Senator eats his words after slandering a gay High Court Judge, queers get lukewarm wooing from French presidential candidates, South Africa's domestic partnered state employees win a major pension rights settlement, and other global GLBT news * In NewsWrap: Australian Senator Bill Heffernan apologizes on the floor of Parliament for slandering openly-gay High Court Judge Michael Kirby [hear an excerpt] and is sacked from Prime Minister John Howard's Cabinet... West Australia goes from worst to best state for queers with passage of a sweeping omnibus bill establishing lesbian & gay equality in areas including age of consent and legal standing of same-gender domestic partners... France's two leading presidential candidates woo queer voters with first-ever interviews in a national gay magazine... an out-of-court settlement establishes full government pension benefits for surviving same-gender partners of South Africa's state civil servants, but a lesbian couple legally registered as domestic partners in Germany is denied recognition in Israel... and other GLBT news from around the world [written by CINDY FRIEDMAN and anchored by CINDY FRIEDMAN & GREG GORDON].(about 10:00) * SAN FRANCISCO has long been considered the gay Mecca of the world, and yet you might find it surprising to know that up until recently, the city has not had its own gay and lesbian community center. The idea for a community home base came long ago from San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, who was assassinated in 1978. That tragedy was the first in a series of crises to rock the city's queer community over the next few decades, and efforts to realize Milk's dream seemed to fail one right after the other. That is, until now. A spectacular new community center, considered a model for community centers across the U.S., recently held its opening ceremonies. This on-scene coverage provided by This Way Out's BRYAN GOEBEL [with production assistance by PAUL JAFFE] includes comments by San Francisco Supervisor MARK LENO, Mayor WILLIE BROWN, Supervisor TOM AMMIANO, Center Interim Director OREN SLOZBERG, and Center Executive Vice President DANA VAN GORDER (with music from the GLIDE MEMORIAL CHURCH CHOIR). (about 5:30) * In this month's words and music from the "AUDIOFILE", relationships are in bloom, but "out" musicians MARK WEIGLE ("Out Of The Loop"), MAGDALEN HSU-LI ("Fire"), and ANNE ENGEL ("Endless Possibilities") will delight you with the variety of songs they've grown [hosted by CHRIS WILSON & JD DOYLE and written & produced with CHRISTOPHER DAVID TRENTHAM].(about 8:10)
