Frank Kameny, RIP

The pioneering equality activist died peacefully in his sleep at the age of 86 on National Coming Out Day. A Rainbow Minute (produced by Judd Proctor & Brian Burns at WRIR-FM in Richmond, Virginia and read by Dustin Richardson) celebrates his life; Kameny discusses the beliefs that drove his activism during a 1975 conversation with Ronald Gold on WBAI-FM in New York City (with thanks to the Pacifica Radio Radio Archives); progressive lesbian news commentator Rachel Maddow eulogizes Kameny on her MSNBC program.

And in NewsWrap: disabled lesbian vet battles biased DOMA benefits, assault on California's LGBT curriculum law fizzles, Polish party propels transwoman into parliament, Presbyterian Church (USA) ordains openly gay pastor, Rio celebrates Pride, and more news reported by John Torres and Robert LeBlanc (produced by Steve Pride).
