The Powerful Way Logo TV Is Censoring Itself On National Coming Out Day

Logo TV is set to honor National Coming Out Day... by going into the closet.

The television channel, which features LGBT-themed shows like “Cocktails and Classics” and “Finding Prince Charming,” will symbolically “censor” all of its queer-related content on National Coming Out Day, which is observed Oct. 11. The “censored” content will include digital pixelation, black bars and bleeped audio on any openly LGBT figures and messages, and will begin airing on the channel at 10 a.m. EST Tuesday during a scheduled marathon of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” (See what episodes of “Drag Race” will look like above)

The “Day of Disruption” effort, which is part of the network’s Global Ally initiative highlighting LGBT stories around the world, will also impact content on LogoTV.com, its NewNowNext news site and Logo social channels, including Facebook and Twitter, through 9 p.m. The modified content will appear alongside facts about global LGBT issues as well as filmed appearances by Candis Cayne, Gus Kenworthy, Billy Porter and Geena Rocero, among other queer celebrities.
