Out Lesbian Athletes & The Deadly Nightshade

video

Nothing taken away from NBA player Jason Collins, whose recent coming out has been met with practically universal praise and support, but over a dozen active women professional athletes have come out since 1981. In fact, the WNBA's Brittney Griner discussed being a lesbian several weeks before Collins' ballyhooed letter to Sports Illustrated. Michelle-Marie Gilkeson hits the streets to get the score.

The first all-women's band to sign with a major record label makes a come-back after 38 years! Queer music historian extraordinaire JD Doyle tends the garden where The Deadly Nightshade blooms anew (with their new CD, Never Never Gonna Stop).

And in NewsWrap: Delaware joins U.S. marriage equality club, Minnesota moves and Illinois inches toward wedding rights, 35,000 Estonians petition against marriage equality, Albania revolts against homophobia and hate crimes, young gay lovers persecuted in Zambia, Sydney's "Glorias" recognize inglorious bastards, and more news reported by Tanya Kane-Parry and Robert LeBlanc (produced by Steve Pride).
