Parents Cautioned: Look Out for LOGOHomosexual Cable Network Going Into Millions of Homes, Whether They Want It or Not
By Mary Rettig and Jody BrownJune 30, 2005
(AgapePress) - The director of research for the American Family Association (AFA) says parents need to be on the lookout for a new cable network designed for homosexuals.
The new MTV network, LOGO, launches today (June 30) in about ten million homes with digital cable in major metropolitan areas like Los Angeles, New York, and Atlanta. It is designed to appeal to a "gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender audience," and will feature such programming as the Annual Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Awards, Queer As Folk, and homosexual films.
Unlike other homosexual networks, LOGO will be available in homes without paying any premium. AFA's Ed Vitagliano says that should pose a major concern for parents.
"LOGO is going to be on local cable systems, not as a premium channel like Showtime or HBO -- which you pay for if you want it. It is going to be, at least in some markets, part of the general, regular [cable] package," he says. "So what's going to happen is that parents are going to find one day that, as their kids are flipping [the channels] to go to Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon or something of that nature, they're going to go past LOGO [and] the homosexual programming on that network."
