Earlier this month when I wrote about Logo’s first ever half-hour gay newscast,” I wondered if it would “cover important gay issues which the rest of the gay media has been largely ignoring, notably the increasing persecution of gay people in such Islamofascist regimes as Iran.” Well, when a friend of mine e-mailed me a link to recent program, I found that the program was doing just that, reporting on the plight of gays in Iran and alerting viewers to a longer program on that topic.
Kudos to Jason Bellini and the staff at Logo for covering a story that all too many gay leaders and organizations have been ignoring (or to which they have been giving short shrift).
Hopefully, this reporting will make more people aware of the dire situation of gays and lesbians in such nations. And as more attention is drawn to their plight, we may find a means to act on their behalf.
All that said, this is a good sign that the producers of Logo’s newscast are more interested in covering gay issues than in parroting a leftist agenda. This may truly become a non-partisan source for gay news.
