Guest / 3:30pm EST - Today marks the beginning of Black History Month, so we look at the life of Bayard Rustin, openly gay Civil Rights activist, who helped organize the 1963 March on Washington, where Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his famous "I Have A Dream" speech. Bennett Singer, Director of Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin, joins us today to talk about the life of this Civil Rights icon.  The Documentary, which celebrates its 10th anniversary, airs this Sunday at 8pm EST on public television WORLD Channel.  Be sure to check here to see if it is playing near you.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - This morning, we woke up to the news that former New York Mayor Ed Koch passed away at the age of 88.  Andy Humm, host of Gay USA, returns to the show to speak with us today about Koch, his failures to address the AIDS crisis during his tenure and his refusal to questions about his sexuality.
