Humor and History Sykes-Out!

Week of July 13, 2015

Black lesbian comic Wanda Sykes gets seriously funny about the past and the future at the 50th Anniversary celebration of the pre-Stonewall Annual Reminder demonstrations -- and a Rainbow Minute describes those early protests in Philadelphia.

Judy Grahn's classic poem A History of Lesbianism and a Rainbow Minute for the courageous British actor Dirk Bogarde provide precedents for Pride.

And in NewsWrap: Japanese petitioners approach the Bar for marriage equality, U.S. Attorney General Lynch vows to deliver the rights stuff, Israel's Knesset nixes secular civil relationships, Michael Sam's pass at marriage is incomplete, Lithuania's Army fears florists, and more international LGBT news reported this week by John Dyer V and Sarah Sweeney (produced by Steve Pride, written by Greg Gordon).
