A Humm in search of a roar

by Jeremy Hooper

Some people in our movement just deserve respect. Longtime activist, politico, journalist, and "Gay USA" co-host Andy Humm is one of those people.

At Michael Petrelis' request, Andy has cooked up a spicy piece of thought-food concerning the state of our movement. From HRC to GetEqual, bloggers to the administration -- Andy addresses all. Whether you strongly agree or disagree, your passion for this civil rights fight makes Andy's piece worth a read:

Andy-HummThe LGBT movement is one of the most anti-democratic social movements in the country. It is almost completely controlled by big donors and closed, self-perpetuating boards who claim anyone who sends them five bucks as a "member." No decision by any of these groups is EVER subjected to an open community vote nor, in most cases, even an open community meeting where the big decisions of the "leaders" can be questioned.
