Howard Schuman (born 1940)[1] is a screenwriter and TV presenter.

In 1995 he was included in the Independent's list of 40 influential gay men. The citation said:

"The forthcoming BBC2 film, Nervous Energy, an autobiographical love story about life, hope and loss in the age of Aids, will doubtless add to the American-born, British resident's reputation as the dramatist who has done most to present complex, engaging and eloquently complete images of gay men on prime-time TV. Rock Follies broke new ground in its straightforward treatment of gay characters. Gay characters also adorn Upline, Video Stars and the banned TV play, Censored Scenes from King Kong. Schuman: 'I've hung on long enough to see real progress.'"[2]
