Lesbian activist Gertrude Melong tells This Way Out's Steve Pride her story of terror and flight from the official homophobic repression of her west central African homeland. (Gertrude is one recipient of assistance from a fund for LGBTI Cameroonian refugees administered by The Horizons Foundation; she and the fund are featured in the documentary Born This Way.)

Mysterious lesbian poetry meets poetic lesbian mystery as Queer Life and Literature Commentator Janet Mason discovers the works of Nicole Brossard and Joan Timberlake.

And in NewsWrap: equal wedding bells ring in the U.K., Puerto Rican lesbians demand marriage recognition, Russian homophobes assault leprechauns, Tennessee lawmakers legalize anti-LGBT student bias, Maryland protects transgenders from discrimination, and more news reported by Michael LeBeau and Kristin Mellian (produced by Steve Pride).
