Supreme Court to Hear Foster Agency Case for Denying Same-Sex Couples While Using Public Funds


The U.S. Supreme Court will hear a case between the city of Philadelphia and Catholic Social Services. Philadelphia terminated its contract for their refusal to place children with same-sex couples with the agency. The city won both of its cases in lower courts. This is not about religious freedom as the hosts of Gay USA point out. "If you're going to use our (public) money, you have to comply with the civil law," says Andy Humm, co-host of Gay USA.


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.
