PETER DRUCKER, a U.S. activist based in the Netherlands, has edited an anthology of essays by several Third World activists called "DIFFERENT RAINBOWS" (Gay Men's Press). During the first two of a 3-part This Way Out conversation, correspondent MICHAEL SCHEMBRI [2SER-FM/Sydney's "Gaywaves"] has talked with Drucker about the influences of globalization and the West on Third World queer liberation movements, and activist successes and challenges in confrontations with religion and post-colonial mindsets. In this week's conclusion, Drucker assesses the impact of the so-called "War on Terrorism", and expands on the complexities of queer identity in the context of Third World realities.(about 9:30)* For some parents a young child's asking "what does 'gay' mean?" could be a perplexing challenge, but in this charming essay by PETER DELL, a simple question gets a simple answer, thanks to some "Fairy Godparents" [produced by STEVE PRIDE & JON BEAUPRE].(about 5:30)
