"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..."

The New "GLO TV Network"
Dedicated To The Urban
SGL (Same Gender Loving) Audience
Coming Fall 2010!!


Hey Black Family,

Just got this hot off the digital press some hours ago, I got some jaw dropping information: an entity called GLO TV Network will be launching in the fall 2010 and is the first and only dedicated Black same gender loving channel.

Click the pic or he link below to read the press release.

This is exactly what we've needed for some time! And now that we have a new venture happening it will be IMPORTANT that WE SUPPORT this network/channel anyway we can.. this INCLUDES FISCALLY if we are called upon for that type of SUPPORT! As my friend DELMAR always says, "We have to pay for our own liberation".

I've never ever liked the Logo Channel or the HERE! Channels' programming policies and decisions. And I VOTED with my wallet and did not subscribe to their networks as part of my monthly cable package. We've seen how the Black SGL (same gender loving) tv series Noah's Ark and The DL Chronicle got F**KED over, right? And putting African-American actor Jensen Atwood in the lilly white show Dante' Cove is not my idea of diversity; if anything it smacks with objectification of the Black man!!

I personally engaged in an e-blast campaign last year (2009) for us to write letters to these two networks which was quite effective in getting their attention because I received feedback from bruthaz who wrote in and told me what their responses were. I, too, wrote two raw and biting letters to both networks and blasted them for their lack of Black programming and overall representation of people of color (the African, Asian, Native America, Latino Diasporas).

Alright folks. be ready to "GLO" and lend your support when need be! Read on...

Hollywood, CA — March 24, 2010 — Maurice Jamal, Award Winning Filmmaker, announced yesterday at the Flipping The Script: Beyond Homophobia in Black Hollywood panel the launch of GLO Television Network coming Fall 2010. The event moderated by actress Sheryl Lee Ralph at the Writers Guild of America, examined the issues regarding the African-American gay and lesbian community in film and television and how to make a positive change within black entertainment and the community at large.

“This is a new day. We need to take the lead in creating opportunities and making the quality entertainment we deserve. GLO TV is innovative and forward thinking. This network is our network: with quality programming geared towards the urban LGBT audience, family, friends and allies. Our community is more than just one ethnicity, one race, one body type, one region or creed. GLO TV is about showing us in all our vibrant colors,” Jamal states.

The urban LGBT community, our family, friends and allies are diverse, valuable, powerful and important: The time has come for us to stand up and be counted.

The time has come for our stories to be told. The time has come for us to show just how amazing we can be. The time has come for GLO.

“This is a major shift in my career and I did some soul-searching, but it was so clear that this was right.” says Jamal. “My partners and I understood the risks with this new and exciting venture; we have faith that it’s the right decision for gay and lesbian community, it’s something we deserve, something that’s overdue. There were no national platforms for the urban LGBT community to share our stories, but now we have GLO TV.”
