June is Gay Pride Month. Today and for the next three shows we will  commemorate the progress the LGBT movement for equal rights has made. In recalling the beginning of the modern gay rights movement in 1969, marked by the Stonewall riots, we will discuss the main concerns of the LGBT community today. Today’s guest is Andy Humm, a gay rights activist since 1974.

Andy Humm has been a gay activist since 1974 helping lead the fight for New York City's gay rights bill that passed in 1986 through the efforts of the Coalition for Lesbian and Gay rights and getting explicit AIDS education in the public schools in the 1990s through his work as director of education at the Hetrick-Martin Institute for LGBT youth. A lifelong journalist as well, he has co-hosted the national "Gay USA" television program weekly since 1985 and writes regularly for the Gay City News and Gotham Gazette. Andy Humm was host of WNET-TV's "Informed Sources" weekly reporters' roundtable in the 1990s. Mr. Humm's work has also appeared in the NY Times, Daily News, and Post.
