"Whenever I use BLACK it relates to some history of Africans in that particular place. It’s the idea of the color BLACK as a metaphor, or as a representation of African-Americans. It’s the notion of BLACK- BLACKNESS - and all its other meanings in relation to the history of race..."

- Fred Wilson

"Most of my fortitude to continue doing the work comes from the moral outrage I feel about the injustices that Black people endure disproportionately daily."

- N. Abdul-Wakil

"In the end, what matters is not skin shade but pan-African consciousness. Loving your complexion, your nose, lips, hair length and texture, no matter what the politics or trends decide, and simply be. That's the problem with us (African folks). We're still learning how to love ourselves. So used to glorifying others and putting others first..."

Malawi Male Couple Convicted Of Homosexuality
With a 14-Year Hard Labor Jail Sentence

Steven Monjeza, Age 26 And Tiwonge Chimbalanga, Age 20

Excerpt From GBMNews.com:

Lilongwe, Malawi (AHN) - A gay couple has been convicted of gross indecency and unnatural acts by a court in Malawi.

The men, Steven Monjeza, 26, and Tiwonge Chimbalanga, 20, were arrested in December 2009 after getting engaged and making arrangements for their wedding this year, according to reports.

They have been locked up since then and could face up to 14 years in prison.

The couple’s arrest has been condemned worldwide, and sparked international talks about homosexuality in their country.

According to Judge Nyakwawa Usiwa-Usiwa, the men were convicted of participating in unnatural sex acts.

Homosexuality is illegal in Malawi, as it is in many African nations.

Attorneys for the men insist their constitutional rights have been violated. They hope to take the ruling to the country's high court.

Letter from the President (And We Don't Mean Barack Obama)
Maurice Jamal Speaks From G-Spot,
The Official Newsletter For GLO TV

Offical Website: GloTVNetwork.com

(and we don’t mean Barack Obama)

From The Desk Of GLO President, Maurice Jamal

First I want to thank you for taking the
time to read G-Spot, the official newsletter for GLO TV. This whole journey has been amazing and overwhelming, in the best of ways. Without a shadow of a doubt, I can say that GLO TV is the most important thing I have ever done. GLO TV is YOUR TV. It’s the first Urban LGBT Network and it is going to be amazing.

From my first film THE SKI TRIP, to everyone’s favorite DIRTY LAUNDRY, to my work on CHAPPELLE’S SHOW and at BET and COMEDY CENTRAL networks, I have worked as an openly gay Black Man. It hasn’t always been easy, but the blessings are more than I can count.

I have sat across the desk from the programming chiefs and presidents of LOGO, BET, COMEDY CENTRAL, HERE and the list goes on. As a producer and executive, I know first-hand the challenges of creating great TV shows. And as a writer-director and creator, I know the ups and downs of getting a great show on the air. But I have always been a believer that the impossible IS possible. And the road less traveled is where the blessings are. So launching the GLO Television Network is the culmination of a dream that I have had for years.

Over the next several weeks, G-Spot will introduce to you the amazing shows, talent, celebrities and journalists of GLO TV. All of whom are professionals in the business, who work long hours behind the scenes to bring you the best in Urban LGBT entertainment. Everyone involved with GLO has become more than a co-worker and creative partner. They’ve become my family and I can’t wait to introduce them to yours.

Coming into your homes each and every day and providing you with the type of high-quality shows and news our community deserves is an incredible honor that we take very seriously. We don’t want GLO to be the best gay network out there, or the best Urban network. We want GLO to be the best, period. That’s our mission and you can count on us.

GLO President, gay dude and all around great guy!
