Mourning COVID-19 Losses in LGBTQ Community

Gay USA hosts, Andy Humm and Ann Northrop, mourn COVID-19 related losses in the LGBTQ community. One of the first deaths of a front-line health worker was gay nurse manager Kious Kelly in NY. COVID-19 also claimed the life of transgender Latina activist Lorena Borjas.

In the clip, Andy and Ann reference Tarlach Mac Niallis who was sick at the time. He has since passed from COVID-19. Tarlach was one of those who fought for 25 years for our right to march in the Parade. And when we won that right in 2017, he was in charge of keeping us in line in the Lavender and Green LGBT Irish contingent on Fifth Avenue. A great bear of a man, he guided us through some tough negotiations with the parade committee in a spirit of reconciliation.

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.
