Logo broadens programming
  • The vast majority of LOGO’s programming is by, for and/or about men. When I have written them they referred me to AbFab & RuPaul as their Lesbian programs. I responded that’s like the boys being satisfied with Axemen. Maybe if they diversified their programming to something beyond the G in LGBT they’d grow their audience.

    The lesbian audience is starving for good quality shows & movies. Currently the best we get is usually low budget & frequently foreign. On TV lesbians are left scratching for crumbs with the likes of Rizzoli & Isles, which has only disappointed.
    I find this extremely ignorant of the investors & was very disappointed in yet another women-centric group – Powerup seemingly selling out to the boys.

    All I can say is if TPTB in the LGBT community cannot support the entire community in an equitable manner, then they should expect like support in return. I won’t miss LOGO, they never considered me as a valuable customer anyway.

  • “I can’t understand why the execs would take this route. If they wanted to reach a broader audience, they could start with a few scripted shows that showcase different aspects of our community, reality shows that go beyond gossip and sex and a serious news show …” I remember when Logo had scripted series, a news show, a show with a masculine guy starting a bar and a sports team show. I guess if that’s what we’re crying for we should have watched it. We took it for granted or we were just bored. Gays should start supporting other gay performers. But… we keep buying Madonna & Kathy Griffin tickets and wonder why there is no gay programming. SUPPORT OUR OWN FIRST… IF THAT WOULD HAPPEN THEY WOULD KEEP MAKING GAY SHOWS… HELLO!?
