LOGO’s Noah’s Arc took on the debate of masculine vs. feminine gays and Keith Boykin applauds: “What’s different about the queens on this television series is that they’re not one-dimensional. Unlike the queens on sitcoms and big budget movies, the queens on ‘Noah’s Arc’ don’t exist simply for comic relief. They have real lives and real struggles with real issues.

The number of celebrities, the number of people with that kind of recognition, compared to then, is exponential to the exponential. I think the average person — you might not think you’d be able to — could easily name a thousand people if I set you down to name a thousand people who are famous.”
