A fast-growing boycott against the Sultan of Brunei shortens stays at the Beverly Hills Hotel as the Feminist Majority Foundation's Eleanor Smeal, comedian Jay Leno, the United Farm Workers' Dolores Huerta, and the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center's Lorri Jean rally with supporters outside.

"Golden Girl" Betty White and her current Hot in Cleveland co-stars Wendie Malick, Jane Leeves, and Valerie Bertinelli honored the 31st anniversary of Los Angeles' Celebration Theater -- the oldest queer theater in the country -- with a reading of a script from the 80s gay sitcom fave. Chrisanne Eastwood also interviews Celebration's co-artistic director Michael A. Shepperd, original Supreme Mary Wilson, and former Golden Girls writer Stan Zimmerman (produced with Steve Pride).

Bearded and "unstoppable" Austrian drag queen Chonchita Wurst conquers the Eurovision Song Contest with a spectacular performance of Rise Like A Phoenix and offers hope for the future in her moving victory speech.

Plus: out Missouri Tiger Michael Sam becomes a St. Louis Ram!

And in NewsWrap: democracy-fearing Chinese cops detain LGBT activists, Taiwan equality advocates organize, marriage rights come to Arkansas, and more news reported by Carole Meyers and Rick Watts (produced by Steve Pride).
