SEGMENT #1 – "NewsWrap": Rampant police abuse is creating "nightmarish" conditions for gay and bisexual men in Kyrgyzstan [with comments by Human Rights Watch LGBT researcher ANNA KIREY], while a homophobic mob breaks into and overruns the office of Alternative Cote d'Ivoire, the leading LGBT advocacy group in the Ivory Coast, seriously injuring a security guard and stealing most everything they didn't vandalize; India's Supreme Court refuses to reconsider its 2 judge panel December ruling that recriminalized private consensual adult gay sex, and Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong says it's not the government's responsibility to protect gay rights, but lawmakers in Northern Cyprus remove the last vestige of laws that banned gay sex in Europe; Islamic courts in Nigeria will resume the prosecutions of 10 men charged with belonging to a gay group – now a criminal offense thanks to sweeping anti-gay legislation signed by President Goodluck Jonathan – in secret to avoid repeats of the stone throwing execution-demanding assault on one of the courts in Bauchi last week, while Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni now says he wants scientific proof that being gay "is not genetic, but a behavior that is acquired" before he'll sign the draconian "Anti-Homosexuality Bill" there; but Bulgarian lawmakers reject a bill that would have outlawed just being out, although one of the measure's backers worries about how his children would be affected by seeing what he calls "those half-naked buggers with psychotic abnormalities" (produced by STEVE PRIDE, written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by MICHAEL LEBEAU & NATALIE PEOPLES) . . . . 10:39

SEGMENT #2 – It was the ceremony as much as the song that put MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS' Grammy Awards performance into the history books. During their hip-hop anthem "SAME LOVE," thirty-three diverse couples were serenaded with the help of MARY LAMBERT, TROMBONE SHORTY & ORLEANS AVENUE, and surprise guest MADONNA, and legally married by a QUEEN – LATIFAH, that is. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 8:11

SEGMENT #4 – The religious right called the ceremony "perverse," "agitprop," "craptacular," and even "intolerant" and "bigoted." The *satirical* right was represented, as always, by Comedy Central's STEPHEN COLBERT . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1:43
