NYC Council Speaker on Front Lines of Fighting Coronavirus in City

Gay USA hosts Ann Northrop and Andy Humm speak with New York City Council Speaker Corey Johnson. He is out gay and HIV+ and on the front lines of working to get the coronavirus under control here in New York, the epicenter of the US pandemic. Corey, calling in from Brooklyn, tells them what we must all do to stop the virus no matter where we live. We’re all vulnerable to the coronavirus and it is hitting the LGBTQ community particularly hard.

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.
