Positive Youth - a new documentary from Charlie David on LOGO

Positive Youth is a one hour documentary which follows four HIV affected or infected youth (late teens to 27) in four different North American cities.

Growing up in the 1980s and 90s we were hammered with terrifying statistics of HIV/AIDS. Thirty years in, we are still learning. What education do youth receive now and why is the youth infection rate still the highest?

"We now have the tools to turn things around. Medication plays a key role in prevention and living a long life," said film subject Austin Head. "Medicine is the reason the virus in my system is at undetectable levels. It has eliminated nearly all possibility of transmission to a loved one. There are still a lot of people who don't know they have options and I wanted to be a part of this film to help share that story."

Each of the four doc subjects share a dynamic perspective on the reality of living positive. Medical, psychological and educational experts will also weigh in to provide up-to-date facts and a historical context to the reality of living positively.

"Positive Youth" will air internationally on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 8:00 p.m. EST on LOGO TV in the United States, along with a soon-to-be-announced broadcast date on OUTtv in Canada. The film will also begin premiering in theaters across North and South America, Europe, Australia and Asia, beginning March 30, 2012.

Eulogy for Logo TV

By StevieB

I’m sure you have heard the news. The bell tolls for the death of Logo, the gay TV channel. It won’t be a nice peaceful death, covered in olive oil, reposing in a Beverly Hills’ Hotel bath tub. No. The corpse of the little gay TV network that brought us Rick and Steve and Jeffrey and Cole will be gutted, and reanimated like Frankenstein’s Monster. The Network will arise from the slab attempting to look like so many overly processed Housewives on the Bravo Network.

If you read my blog for long you’ll notice that I stay away from anything political, there are much better and more astute bloggers for popular news stories. That being said, when I read about Logo changing its platform, I felt as if RuPaul had just told me to “sashay away.”

Logo has decided to attempt a Bravo Network format. This grabbing at Bravo’s Housewives franchise will be mixed with some Lifetime channel and other female centric shows, along with reality shows just to make the train wreck “fabulous.” If the channel’s inauthentic reality show, The A-List was the canary in the networks coalmine. The bird is dead.

I will miss my Logo channel. It won’t pass peacefully and much as it will be murdered.

America will have a new source for faux reality shows about the housewives of mobsters, forcing their toddlers to compete in pageants as tables get flipped in arguments over the bidding of abandoned storage units. Must avoid TV.

For a short time we had a channel for us. Like when MTV showed music. My hope is that young gays will be able to grow up remembering how this channel helped them come out and not remember how The A-List made inauthentic stereotypes of our community.

Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for gayTV ...

Logo going straight?

Looks like Logo has gotten out of the gay television business, having cancelled all of their current programming except for 'RuPaul's Drag Race' with the intention of replacing it with more mainstream fare, according to UnicornBooty.

Summer TV is heating up with new and returning shows on Logo

Logo kicks off summer with the U.S. series premiere of “The Jaquie Brown Diaries” and the return of Logo’s original series “Jeffery and Cole Casserole” (above) and BBC hit comedy series “Beautiful People” (below left).

“The Jaquie Brown Diaries" follows the trials and tribulations of a Bridget Jones-meets-Kathy Griffin-type, self-absorbed television reporter who will do anything to keep her C-list celebrity status. Tender at her core, Jaquie Brown will have fans cheering for her as she stumbles her way to the “middle.”

The webcam-based “Jeffery and Cole Casserole” ventures into the future of comedy as Jeffery Self and Cole Escola serve viewers a comedic mash up of madcap sketches, bizarre moments and overall mayhem in this sketch comedy series shot entirely from a web-cam. “Beautiful People,” the BBC series inspired by the eccentric childhood of style guru Simon Doonan, delves inside Simon’s youthful memories and his desire to escape suburban working class Reading, England. This coming-of-age story filled with musical showstoppers highlights Simon’s attempts to cope with the oddities of his very eccentric family. All the while, he and his best friend Kyle (or “Kylie” as everyone refers to him) bide their time until they can live amongst the “beautiful people” in London. It’s like “Glee,” only gayer – and more British.

The Robert Verdi Show Starring Robert Verdi

 'The Robert Verdi Show Starring Robert Verdi' premieres February 10 on Logo and follows celebrity stylist and TV personality Robert Verdi and his creative team as they try to take over pop culture one party, product, and outfit at a time. Robert pays the bills by dressing Eva Longoria Parker for the Met Ball, planning a party for (the late, lamented) 'Ugly Betty' co-star Ana Ortiz and coming to Kathy Griffin's rescue in a bona fide fashion emergency.

I've seen a screener of the first couple of episodes and while it doesn't exactly break new ground in its genre it is a jolly, 30-minute romp made enjoyable thanks to Verdi's self-consciously camp persona.

Slay your hangover with a New Year's Day Buffy the Vampire Slayer marathon on Logo

Good news for those of us who plan to spend New Year's Day hungover and on the couch!

Logo's serving up a 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' marathon and I can't think of a better way to ring in the new year. 'New Year’s Slay' premieres Friday, January 1 at 6 a.m. The show will then start airing regularly on Logo later in the month. Whoo-hoo!

The only problem is that New Year's Day is also the kickoff of the 'Degrassi: TNG' marathon over on Teen Nick. 'Buffy' is my favorite TV show of all time but Teen Nick is showing every 'Degrassi: TNG' episode ever made for crying out loud. 'Buffy' or 'Degrassi'? What's a gay guy to do?

Alec Mapa: No Fats, Femmes, or Asians

Daring, hilarious and uncensored comedian and actor Alec Mapa takes to the stage for the world premiere of his new stand-up special “No Fats, Femmes or Asians.” Too wild and raunchy for primetime, “No Fats, Femmes or Asians” debuts on Logo in the wee hours of Saturday, December 12.

Mapa touches on topics ranging from the raunchy to the unbelievable including: his salacious encounters at a circuit party, to his memorable exchange with the homeless at an executive’s party, to an unforgettable incident on gay cruise. “No Fats, Femmes, or Asians” ultimately showcases Mapa’s talent to mock the ridiculous in pop culture while reminding the audience the importance of people respecting each other, despite differences in their race or sexual orientation.

In addition, you can catch “No Fats, Femmes or Asians” on beginning Monday, December 14 in Logo’s “Funny Gay Stuff” playlist.
