NBA & Ohio outings + more global LGBT news(#1310)

On the new “This Way Out” (hosted by Greg Gordon and produced with Lucia Chappelle), a pro athlete’s “outing” wins championship coverage (ABC’s George Stephanapolous scores the first broadcast interview with Jason Collins, while ersatz “Comedy Central” commentator Stephen Colbert laments the growing acceptance of “out” gay people in professional sports)… a fired Ohio lesbian aims to teach her diocese a lesson (“Free Speech Radio News” reporter Evan Davis has the story of Columbus, Ohio Roman Catholic high school educator Carla Hale)… and in “NewsWrap” (produced by Steve Pride and reported this week by Rick Watts and Michelle-Marie Gilkeson), two more Brazilian states declare marital parity, but Northern Ireland lawmakers quash a marriage equality bill, while Samoa decriminalizes its “third gender”, “Best Gay Friends” are a hit in Vietnam, and the world’s first elected “out” head of state retires. Those stories — and more this week — when you tune in to “This Way Out: the international gay and lesbian radio magazine,” the world’s audio oasis for LGBT news and culture.
