We want to break down walls. Blow up niche marketing. We'll begin with Grace Slick singing White Rabbit. We'll alternate between musical selections and discussion by a female artist from Minnesota Opera. She'll discuss a little history, technique and aesthetics. We'll continue with more examples of virtuosic singing by women. We'll modulate from popular music to jazz to the light Italian opera repertoire and end with Wagner -- the Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde and the Immolation Scene from Twilight of the Gods when the world ends. . .

"NewsWrap": LGBT rights supporters celebrate historic victories in this week's U.S. elections, including a 2nd term win by "Ally in Chief" President Barack Obama, and TAMMY BALDWIN of Wisconsin becoming the first open lesbian or gay person elected to the U.S. Senate [with brief Baldwin election night comments]; Congressional homophobes Bachmann and Foxx are re-elected, and voters in Salina and Hutchinson, Kansas rescind anti-bias ordinances passed by their respective city councils, but Iowa Supreme Court Justice David Wiggins survives efforts to have him removed from the bench for supporting marriage equality; Maine voters re-open civil marriage to same-gender couples, voters in Maryland and Washington each affirm the marriage equality votes of their respective state legislatures, and Minnesotans reject a proposal to constitutionally ban same-gender marriage; more than a hundred "out" LGBT candidates win state and local elections across the country and nearly double their number on Capitol Hill; one of the 4 Republican Senators who voted for marriage equality in New York last year is re-elected, another did not seek re-election, the third lost his primary election, and the fourth loses to a Democrat; but "Big Brother Australia" winner Benjamin Norris proposes to his boyfriend on national television (written by GREG GORDON, produced by STEVE PRIDE, and reported this week by JASON PROCTOR and NATALIE PEOPLES)
Barack Obama was on to something when he said during the waning days of the presidential campaign that, "Voting is the best revenge." And after 32 losses that began in 1998 when marriage for same-gender couples was on the ballot, equality supporters savored *their* revenge in all four states where it was an issue this year. Voters in MAINE made it the first to open civil marriage to gay and lesbian couples by a popular vote: AMY BROWNE reports from WERU-FM in East Orland. Even though anti-gay opponents didn't concede defeat until two days after the election because WASHINGTON votes by mail, the electorate there made it one of two states in the U.S. this week to confirm marriage equality legislation that had been enacted by their state government: QUENTIN MAHONEY reports from KAOS in Olympia. Meanwhile, voters in Minnesota made it the first state in the nation to reject a proposal to define marriage as exclusively heterosexual in their state constitution: MICHELLE ALIMORADI (with production assistance by DIXIE TREICHEL) reports from KFAI in Minneapolis/St. Paul. Voters in MARYLAND can lay claim to being the first in the U.S. to uphold their state government's enactment of civil marriage equality: JOEL McCORD reports from WYPR in Baltimore. And during his election night victory speech, PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA echoed one of the themes in his speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention that catapulted him into the national political spotlight
