While MSNBC has the plucky Rachel Maddow to hash out political issues of the day, Here TV has the adorkable Jim Morrison examining politics from a uniquely queer vantage point. Morrison looks at many broader underlying issues of LGBT culture — such as HIV phobia, misogyny, drug addiction, and queer politics — to draw attention to the cultural trends that most mainstream and LGBT media typically overlook.

So far Morrison has interviewed Freedom to Marry's founder Evan Wolfson, gay Republican presidential candidate Fred Karger, NAACP leader Ben Jealous, and global HIV activist Regan Hoffman as well as many other political movers and media shakers in the LGBT sphere.

Watch Jim Morrison from For & Against, which currently airs on Here TV, discuss the global state of LGBT issues below:
