Gay USA is a weekly news program recorded in the Manhattan Neighborhood Network Studios, that deals with gay, lesbian and LGBT issues and is hosted by longtime gay rights activists and journalists Andy Humm and Ann Northrop.
The hour-long program includes coverage of local, national and international news of interest to the gay community. Northrop and Humm anchor the show and go out in the field to cover events — national political conventions, local political debates, pride parades, weddings, funerals, AIDS demonstrations. They also interview guests in the studio, ranging from political figures to authors and entertainers.
Both Humm and Northrop have long careers in journalism and activism. Northrop worked with WCBS and ABC Sports, was a writer and producer for "Good Morning America" and "CBS Morning News" and worked as an AIDS educator before joining Gay USA in 1996. From 1991-1995, Humm hosted WNET-TVs Informed Sources, a weekly prime-time public affairs roundtable; he has been the host or co-host of Gay USA (or its predecessor on the Gay Cable Network, Pride and Progress) since 1985.
Gay USA airs Thursdays, 11 pm/ET on MNN1 (FiOS 33, RCN 82, Spectrum 34 & 1995) and MNN HD (Spectrum 1993).
