Gay USA [slow-loading link, Wikipedia entry] is a long running weekly news show covering GLBT issues, hosted by Andy Humm and Ann Northrop. It can be found on Manhattan public access television, Free Speech TV [DISH Network channel 9145, DirecTV channel 348, local cable affiliates], via rss feed [individual episodes and subscribe link], and now as an iTunes podcast [iTunes link]. It is a valuable capsule summary for any who seek to stay on top of GLBT related politics, issues, and entertainment.

Archives / individual episodes can also be found at the Free Speech TV website

Great show for people concerned with social justice in general, regardless of sexual preference. Humm and Northrup present their program with intelligence and sharp wit. I've watched for years on WYBE in Philly

The archives don't seem to be working--videos aren't loading.

Good grief, indeed. Sorry about that. I checked a few recent shows to see if they loaded, but didn't go back in the history much at all.

Looking at FreeSpeechTV's "channel" on, it appears that the episodes of Gay USA disappear sometime in the middle of 2010 from what they offer.

Sorry about the bad link -- Mods, delete the "more inside" part of this post if you see fit.

I've been in touch with FreeSpeechTV and Andy Humm and they say they are looking into the problem with the archive video being deleted from the host. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.
