Gay & Happy in Russia?
***âPutin is the âCzar of Homophobiaâ***. His regime has outlawed the public expression of **LGBT** identity and affection â and prohibited the advocacy of **LGBT** human rights â in circumstances where a person under 18 might see it. The adoption of children by overseas same-sex couples has also been banned and **LGBT** organisations that receive donations from abroad are being fined as âforeign agentsâ. These are the latest examples of escalating homophobic and political repression in Russia,â said **Peter Tatchell**, Director of the **Peter Tatchell Foundation**. On the next edition of **Life Elsewhere** we discuss what is happening in Russia with **Peter Tatchell.**
Bram Stoker + Russophobia = Dracula
âIn Victorian England, a marked fear of Russia prevailed in the government and the public. As a result of the Crimean War and other Russian threats to the British Empire, the English mind was haunted by a shadowy enemy of barbarous Eastern invaders. The influence of this **Russophobia** is evident in the works of **Bram Stoker**, who responded to the Russian challenge to British Imperial hegemony through the character of Dracula, a primitive and menacing Eastern figure destroyed by warriors pledged to the crown.â We talk to **Dr. Jimmie Cain** about his theory and his book *âBram Stoker and Russophobia: Evidence of the British Fear of Russia in Dracula and The Lady of the Shroudâ*. The next edition of Life ***Elsewhere airs Monday, 19 at 9.00am EST (1400 GMT)***
Bradley Manning through his attorney, announced that he was beginning hormone treatment to become a woman and that he should be referred to as Chelsea Manning.

Our guests will include the mother of a Transgender child, a Transgender person and a doctor who specializes in Transgender issues.

The next edition of Life Elsewhere features an in depth and personal interview with Martin Atkins, one of rock's legendary drummers, who also happens to be a really good guy. Martin's stellar resume includes PiL, Brian Brain, Ministry, Pigface, Killing Joke and Nine Inch Nails. We talk with Martin about his experiences and collaborations with these legendary bands and how he became an educator on the workings of the music business.. He's an engaging man, you'll not want to miss his real-life anecdotes. Plus Martin Atkins selects this week's Hit That Never Was...can you guess what it will be? Ted Coreless, attorney, critical thinker and media personality will join us to address the question, "How did parody news become real news?" With antagonistic talking heads, split screens, omnipresent news crawls, animated graphics, quick cut-aways and non-stop moving cameras, do we now live in a world where sedate, non-confrontational dialogue is all but vanished?
