Opening teases/theme music/intro continuity . . . . . . . . . . 1:09

SEGMENT #1 – "NewsWrap": Uruguay begins offering marriage licenses to same-gender couples, becoming the second country in South America with such equality nationwide, while Pennsylvania's Montgomery County defies the U.S. state's heterosexuals-only marriage law; LGBT Pride celebrates its second birthday in both Hanoi and Entebbe; a "no promo homo" law is proposed and then quickly withdrawn in Armenia, while Lithuanian officials reject holding a referendum on such a law there; Vladimir Putin's Russia continues to suffer economic and political backlash against government promises to enforce its law banning "gay propaganda" among native and foreign athletes and spectators alike when it hosts the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi; Pride in Stockholm puts out the welcome mat for beleaguered celebrants from Russia, while more than a half-million watch Amsterdam float its condemnation of Putin and support for a homophobia-free sports world, and a pair of Canadian Olympians march in support of diversity at the 35th annual Pride parade in Vancouver, British Columbia (written by GREG GORDON, produced by STEVE PRIDE, and reported this week by JOHNNIE TORRES and SARAH SWEENEY). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 10:04

SEGMENT #2 – Billboard for Russia Olympics-gay update and Dan Parent/"Kevin Keller" interview [:06] + Anyone who was still awake by the end of this week's lackluster first leaders debate of AUSTRALIA's federal election campaign got a juicy tidbit on marriage equality: OPPOSITION LEADER TONY ABBOTT gave his lesbian sister a shout-out but not a break, while PRIME MINISTER KEVIN RUDD vowed to deliver [2:07] + "TWO" I.D. by JANIS IAN [:06] . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 2:19

SEGMENT #3 – Human rights activists and government leaders around the world are engaging in the discussion about how to respond to RUSSIA's crackdown on sexual minorities as the 2014 WINTER OLYMPICS in SOCHI approaches. MSNBC's Rachel Maddow has been closely following the developments, and asked Georgetown University professor of international affairs and government CHARLES KING to analyze the global impact of the controversy. U.S. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA expressed his concerns this week on NBC-TV's "Tonight Show with Jay Leno", and at a subsequent press conference rejected calls for an Olympic boycott [6:20] + "TWO" Web Promo (voiced by SARAH SWEENEY, with brief musical intro by THE WHO) [:17] . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6:37

SEGMENT #4 – The latest "ARCHIE COMICS" release features its first gay character "KEVIN KELLER" getting his first gay kiss – even though his very existence continues to horrify comic book homophobes. That chapter of Kevin's life was no doubt already in the works when "This Way Out" media correspondent STEVE PRIDE tracked down his proud papa DAN PARENT at Comic-Con 2013 in SAN DIEGO. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 7:25
