A protest organizer, Andy is a co-founder of the Gay Liberation Network, a multi-issue LGBT rights direct action group, which helped win equal marriage rights in Illinois. He’s been arrested in various protests, not only locally, but twice in Moscow, Russia for protesting against the government’s bans on gay rights demonstrations.  Mena Boulanger will facilitate.
