DeRay Mckesson: We Have the Critical Mass, Now We Need Organizing

In the wake of the police murder of George Floyd, a week of Black Lives Matter protests nationwide and a federal government turning on its own people, Gay USA hosts Andy Humm and Ann Northrop speak with DeRay Mckesson: educator, civil rights activist, one of the leading voices in the Black Lives Matter movement, and author of “On the Other Side of Freedom: The Case for Hope.” Learn more about DeRay McKesson here and more about his proposals for change, #8CantWait.

Gay USA, the longest-running LGBT news show in history, offers comprehensive news and analysis by and about the LGBTQ community. The program features lively repartee between hosts Ann Northrop and Andy Humm, as well as interviews with special guests. Our goal each week is to keep our viewers up-to-date on the latest developments in the LGBTQ+ community in the United States and abroad.  With decades of experience in journalism and activism, we work diligently to provide historical context for the stories we cover. We strongly believe in LGBT liberation, but we aim to be fair to those who oppose us. Gay USA works to provide a critical perspective on the groups within our movements working to change things.
