by Adam Finley, posted Jan 26th 2007 4:02PM

noah's arcLogo --the gay, lesbian bi-sexual and transgender network-- is taking the first steps toward continuing its short-lived series Noah's Arc as a feature film. The series, which focuses on Noah and Wade, two black gay screenwriters and their friends in Los Angeles, ended last year after its second season. The feature film, which will continue where the series left off, is still in the very early stages of development, but should hit theaters in 2008 according to Logo. This would be the first feature film developed by the new channel.

You can watch a full episode of the series here.

GLAAD Media Award nominees announced

by Julia Ward, posted Jan 23rd 2007 11:03AM
Justin and Ignacio Ugly BettyThe GLAAD Media Award nominations were announced over the weekend. The Awards honor films, movies, music, news outlets, advertisements, plays and even comic books that offer "fair, accurate and inclusive" representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. There are no real surprises among the nominees, which include The L Word, Desperate Housewives, Ugly Betty ("jazz hands") and The Office. The individual episode nominations are reserved for those shows without regular gay characters and include Grey's Anatomy, a show making headlines right now not for its storylines but for actor Isaiah Washington's reported homophobic remarks. Amazingly, South Park was not nominated for its brave portrayal of a post-op Mrs. Garrison.

The Awards will be broadcast on Logo on April 21st. A list of the television nominees follows the jump. A full list of nominees in all categories can be seen on the GLAAD website.

Looking for gay culture in small towns

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 23rd 2006 4:56PM
ANTMTV's gay and lesbian Logo network is teaming up with comedian "Ant" (most of you will remember him from Last Comic Standing) to seek out gay life in small town America. For US of ANT the comedian will travel across the United States and visit random towns to see how the gay community is getting along. The comedian claims he'll be throwing a dart at a map to decide where to go, though I imagine a more scientific approach will probably be used. Or not.

 

Those of us who grew up in small towns know they don't always embrace alternative lifestyles. The idea has possibilities, and it will be interesting to see what the show does with its subject matter.
