1988: “This Way Out’s” Nativity!

Flashbacks from our first six months bring the news up to date: recollections of the UK’s “Clause 28,” the US Army vs. SGT Perry Watkins, illegal slow-dancing at The Magic Kingdom, the early days of the AIDS Quilt, Canada’s first politician to come out, the cop in Michael Hardwick’s bedroom, and more … and guess where it all leads!

And in NewsWrap: Chad outlaws same-gender sex, Gambia’s homophobic Yahya hangs on despite his election defeat, Israel eases citizenship requirements for queer non-Israeli spouses, the Cherokee Nation marriage equality ban is declared unconstitutional, Team Trump adds more confirmed homophobes, Melbourne’s Midsumma marshals moxie for a Murdoch split, and more international LGBT news reported this week by Sarah Sweeney and John Dyer V (produced by Steve Pride, written by Greg Gordon).
