"Don't Ask" Done & Prop 8 Pause

Now playing ... week of Jan. 10, 2011

A historic presidential signature, a returned ring, and shared military showers play taps for Don't Ask Don't Tell: President Obama's December 22nd signing ceremony authorized repeal of the odious military policy; Aaron Tax of the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network talks about the way forward; MSNBC news commentator Rachel Maddow heralded repeal with two noteworthy footnotes -- U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid returns the West Point ring given to him by activist Lt. Dan Choi, and Congressman Barney Frank responds to a question about the "horrors" of post-repeal shower-sharing. (Dan Wood of Free Speech Radio News contributed.)

A Prop 8 question in the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals creates complications: Shannon Minter of the National Center for Lesbian Rights and Equality California's Geoff Kors discuss the legal standing of the measure's sponsors to litigate the case. (Aileen Alfandary of Pacifica Evening News contributed.)

Plus a Rainbow Minute recalling the crossed paths of U.S. President Gerald Ford and reluctant gay hero Bill Sipple. (Produced by Judd Proctor and Brian Burns, and read by John DeBoer.)

And in NewsWrap: Ugandan activists win against "outing" tabloid, U.N. restores sexual orientation to resolution against extrajudicial killings, Alberta's amended psych list better late than never, and more news reported by Chris Wilson and Ben Caron.
