It'll be kinda like a getting a big gay stamp on your couch potato's passport . . . .

On Wednesday, Oprah Winfrey takes a look at what it's like to be gay outside our own borders. In "Gay Around the World," the daytime diva asks, "What if the freedom to be yourself all came down to where you live?"

"That's the reality for millions around the world," explains. "One guest was arrested and spent a year in jail. And, one woman says she was so fearful, she moved to a different country. Then, a prince whose secret was so taboo . . . it ripped his royal family apart and stunned an entire nation."

Princes and gays and Oprah . . . O! My.
