Andy (any pronouns), described as “a gigantic pain in the butt for law enforcement” by a retired Chicago Police Deputy Commander in a 2012 Sun-Times profile, is a 30+ year Uptown resident and has worked as Loevy + Loevy’s office manager since 2003.
He has been arrested numerous times in various protests, including twice  in Moscow, Russia for protesting against that government’s bans on gay rights demonstrations. As co-founder of the multi-issue, LGBTQ Gay Liberation Network, he has long worked to provide an intersectional voice within the LGBTQ community, helping spearhead the fight for equal marriage rights in Illinois years before “mainstream” activists joined the fight, incurring felony charges from the Cook County States Attorney’s Office for his efforts. He has focused on raising issues not popular with corporate gay activists such as support for Chelsea Manning, solidarity with Palestinians, opposition to gentrification, and opposing United States’ many wars.
