Insight, storytelling, colour. Today, there's endless bread but not much comfort as Nigerian children find shelter in a bakery from the extremists of Boko Haram. India's accused of involvement in disturbances just over the border in Nepal - people have died in clashes with the security forces and cross-border commerce has been hard hit. The amount of violence in eastern Ukraine has gone down, but there are other problems for the government in Kiev: the economy's in deep trouble and frustrated ultra-nationalists are making their presence felt. Voodoo's coming under attack on the island of Haiti in the Caribbean - one senior Roman Catholic churchman's called it 'magic'. And there's a visit to the 'alternative' American city of Portland, Oregon. It's certainly a place of beards and tattoos but is it falling victim to creeping provincialism?
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
