SEGMENT #1 – "NewsWrap": The Ugandan government announces the signature of President Yoweri Museveni on the draconian "Anti-Homosexuality Bill" after lawmakers with medical backgrounds from his ruling political party assure him that it's a "social behavior" and not a genetic predisposition; El Salvador lawmakers reject a constitutional amendment defining civil marriage as exclusively heterosexual, while U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER orders his Justice Department to defend all the rights, responsibilities and benefits of marriage currently available to legally married same-gender couples [with a :24 excerpt from his speech at the Human Rights Campaign New York fundraising dinner]; a U.S. federal court overturns Virginia's constitutional ban on marriage equality, Nevada's Attorney General decides that defending her state's ban in a federal appeals court is a losing proposition, a federal court in Kentucky rules that that state's law banning the recognition of same-gender couples legally married elsewhere violates the U.S. Constitution, and a Kentucky gay couple files suit demanding marriage equality within the state; the Wyoming House of Representatives soundly defeats a marriage equality proposal but also votes down a separate bill to ban legal recognition of same-gender couples legally hitched elsewhere; Indiana lawmakers stumble over language in a proposed constitutional amendment defining civil marriage in the state as the union of one man and one woman; and the Kansas state House approves a bill to allow businesses and government agencies to deny service to same-gender couples based on "their sincerely held religious beliefs" -- described by opponents as a "license to discriminate" (produced by STEVE PRIDE, written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by MICHAEL ALLAN and NATALIE PEOPLES) [10:54] + Billboard for the Michael Sam interview [:09] . . . . . . . . . 11:03

SEGMENT #2 – The Olympics are going strong in Sochi, but RUSSIA is not playing games when it comes to quashing LGBT rights. While hosting the international festivities, the government has not been too busy to enact new legislation reinforcing its ban on adoptions by same-gender couples and adoptions of Russian children by single people from marriage equality countries. Violent homophobic attacks continue on the rise, as documented just before the Olympic Opening Ceremonies in the U.K. Channel 4 film "Hunted" that drew bitter criticism from the Russian ambassador in London. Many activists fear the situation will deteriorate even further after the Olympics are over. Russian lesbian journalist MASHA GESSEN has profiled President Vladimir Putin, and U.S. writer and college professor JEFF SHARLET reports about Russian repression in the current issue of “GQ” magazine. On the eve of the Opening Ceremonies, they each shared their concerns on MSNBC's "All In with CHRIS HAYES" (with intro music from "Moscow Nights" via YouTube by unidentified Russian performers). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 8:10

SEGMENT #3 – "TWO" I.D. gay Olympian GREG LOUGANIS [:07] + The Super Bowl may have fallen short of expectations, but the U.S. National Football League now has another media extravaganza leading up to its new player draft in May. Graduating University of Missouri Tiger MICHAEL SAM is expected to be a high-ranking pick -- but will the award-winning defensive end still be in demand now that he's come out as gay? He's gotten "out-standing" support from his team and his schoolmates, who even fended off a protest from the "God Hates You-know-who" Westboro Baptist Church outside a Tigers basketball game this week, while inside the arena Sam enjoyed a standing ovation. However some NFL insiders have expressed doubts about whether the locker room is ready to be liberated. ESPN's CHRIS CONNELLY broke the story in an interview with Sam on "Outside the Lines" (with intro music from "Tiger Rag" via YouTube performed in 2010 by the BLACK AND GOLD PEP BAND OF MARCHING MIZZOU) [7:15] . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 7:22

SEGMENT #1 – "NewsWrap": As many as two dozen LGBT rights activists are jailed in separate actions in Moscow and St. Petersburg on the eve of the Opening Ceremonies of the Winter Olympics in Sochi for violating Russia's so-called "no promo homo" law; Nigeria's Roman Catholic Bishops Conference praises President Goodluck Jonathan for signing what's come to be known as the "Jail All the Gays" bill, while Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni is reportedly getting "scientific" assurances from lawmakers in his ruling political party with medical backgrounds that gays can be "cured" so that he can sign the oppressive "Anti-Homosexuality" bill there; Scottish lawmakers overwhelmingly make their country the 17th in the world to open civil marriage to lesbian and gay couples, while a U.S. federal judge promises a ruling "soon" following hearings on a lawsuit challenging Virginia's state ban on marriage equality, and same-gender couples file suit this week challenging Wisconsin's ban; hooded thugs invade a movie theater in the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo hosting an LGBT Film Festival injuring at least three people, but tens of thousands brave sweltering temperatures in Australia to applaud the annual LGBT Pride march in Melbourne, and a record crowd defies India's Supreme Court with Pride in Mumbai; lesbian tennis legend Billie Jean King bows out of the official U.S. delegation to the Winter Olympics because of her mother Betty Moffitt's failing health; she dies at 91 on the same day of the Opening Ceremonies in Sochi; and members of the London Gay Men's Chorus "serenade" the Russian Embassy to protest that country's "no promo homo" law during the same hours that the Winter Games Opening Ceremonies are being held in Sochi [with a :25 snippet from the end of their "River Deep, Mountain High"] (produced by STEVE PRIDE, written by GREG GORDON, and reported this week by SARAH SWEENEY & RICK WATTS) [10:52] + billboard for Melissa Etheridge's "Uprising of Love" [:08]. . . . . . . . 11:00

SEGMENT #2 – Can a gay person say what -- or who -- is homophobic? That's the debate engulfing IRELAND ever since "PANTI BLISS" appeared in mid-January on national TV broadcaster RTE's "Saturday Night Show". The Emerald Isle's most well known drag queen –- real name RORY O'NEILL -– named several journalists and called out a Roman Catholic think-tank as homophobes. After they threatened to sue for libel, RTE hastily gave up a big cash settlement. That just threw more fuel on the fire, with allies and opponents arguing over both the broadcaster's action and Panti's comments. The entertainer was given time on February 1st to respond to the uproar on the stage of Dublin's Abbey Theatre (with intro music from "Homophobia" by ROMANOVSKY & PHILLIPS) . . . . 10:13

SEGMENT #3 – "TWO" I.D. by CHRIS FREEMAN of PANSY DIVISION (intro'd by a snippet from their "That's So Gay") . . . . . . . . . . . . . :39

SEGMENT #4 - LGBT Russians are getting support from around the world as they face repression during the Winter Olympics in Sochi -- and of even more concern, after the Games are over. Lesbian rocker MELISSA ETHERIDGE is adding her voice with a new single, "UPRISING OF LOVE" -- and donating the proceeds to the Russia Freedom Fund. . . . . . 4:32

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

SEGMENT #5 – And 'lest we forget, rising young country star HUNTER HAYES debuted his anti-bullying track "INVISIBLE" earlier in the evening for the first supportive Grammy showstopper . . . . . . 3:54
