Nigeria Protests & "Behind the Queens"

Week of March 10, 2014
To listen to the whole show, click here!

Four young men convicted of violating Nigeria's new horrendously-oppressive anti-LGBT laws are publicly flogged and still face fines and imprisonment as demonstrations -- like the one outside the Nigerian Embassy in New York City -- proliferate around the world (Kelly Cogswell and Harriet Hirshorn report).

The forthcoming documentary Behind the Queens unveils Vancouver's drag scene (producers Zack Singer and Deborah Power).

U.S. Congressman Steve King is dethroned by satirist Stephen Colbert after the self-professed Iowa Republican's pronouncement about the fairness of religious discrimination against self-professed LGBTs.

And in NewsWrap: "unnatural" arrests panic Zambia, Cameroon and Uganda; ambiguity attends the Pope's new civil unions spin; the Dalai Lama is "okay" with marriage equality; U.S. marriage equality marches forward in Colorado, Indiana, Wyoming, Illinois, and Kentucky; and more news reported by Tanya Kane-Parry and Christopher Gaal (produced by Steve Pride).
