Creating a network specifically for the LGBT community is something weve wanted to do for a long, long time, and its an idea we feel is overdue, said Tom Freston, Chairman and CEO of MTV Networks. Despite our nations progress on civil rights and the growing visibility of gay people in business, society and even in television programming what has been missing is a full-time home for this important and influential audience on television. We have big plans and hopes for LOGO and Im thrilled to finally announce its arrival.
LOGO features original programming including a show about coming out stories, a gay & lesbian travel show and special news features. Logo also airs short gay films, movies of interest to the gay and lesbian community and reruns of shows popular in gay culture, like Queer as Folk and Tales of the City.
Noah's Arc and U.S. of Ant
Two of the most popular shows on Logo are Noah's Arc and U.S. of Ant. Noah's Arc follows a group of gay African American in Hollywood. Comedian Ant hosts a show where he visits gays and lesbians in rural America.
