    I’m still pissed that they changed their format from being a “gay” channel to one that has awful straight programming! Can’t we have at least one decent channel with gay only programming!

    I had LOGO for a while before the switch, and I can’t say it seems much different. The only surprise is there was actually a gay man involved. I always assumed the explanation for why LOGO was such a lousy channel was that it must have been straight people programming it with what they thought gay people wanted to watch.
