Alan Cumming wrapped "The Good Wife" in 2016, but the actor and activist is staying busy with TV and film projects, concerts and human rights activism work. 

The Scottish-born actor is known for his tireless work with organizations like GLAAD, the Hetrick-Martin Institute, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, the Ali Forney Center, the Family Equality Council and more. 

Cumming will host the first-ever Village Voice Pride Awards in New York on June 21, which will recognize local and global heroes in the LGBTQ movement. He talked to CBS News about the event, his concerns for the LGBT community during President Donald Trump's term and his new TV show, "Instinct."
