Gay TV

Well.

I'm not entirely sure about LOGO, the gay TV channel from MTV.

Actually, I am sure about it. Just, no. They make a pitch in their press release about the diversity of the gay community etc.

But... if we're that diverse, why on earth should we be interested in the insignifant linking theme of gayness?

That's not put very well at all. But my basic feeling is that, to be honest, I'm not interested in someone just because they're gay. I'm interested just because they're interesting.

I can imagine nothing worse than limiting my TV viewing to Will and Grace, Queer Eye and reruns of Oranges are Not the Only Fruit.

Well, yes, I can. Limiting my TV viewing to football. But, you know...

But since everyone on TV is interesting to at least someone (with the possible exception of the first lot of contestants on Big Brother), then everyone on a gay TV channel will be gay AND interesting. In theory.

Then again, I've sat through TV shows allegedly skewed to my unique ethnic demographic. *snore*
