What, the stereotype of showing men french kissing and rolling around together? Yes, they really deserve thanks for eliminating that horrible common stereotype. Let's keep gay boys sexless and subservient where they belong...and these comments come from a supposedly gay friendly forum? The straights who run logo must be laughing their asses off.  Cutting off the balls of gay men turned out easier than they thought.

Great thread going here guys, you brought up a lot of good points. Remember when mtv was proud and defended showing one of the housemates making out on the beach with his cuban boyfriend on the Real World miami? That was years ago and a real trailblazer. The last season in vegas spent most of the time having the roommates be disgusted that a male roomie was gay for pay in the past. One idiot said he couldn't visit a school because it would "break the law". The reunion was a disaster of shouting homophobia. I'll never watch the real world again. Plus what people forget is on most reality shows there's the one lesbian or gay guy and everyone else on the cast is straight. A-list was the only reality show that broke that quota and had a majority of the cast gay. Not only were they gay and talked about boys like drag race does but they actually showed physical affection! DR, project runway etc. may have majority gay casts but they're task driven shows not focused on the real daily lives of the people involved, they are far from personal. No gays on big brother have ever even kissed, but straights on the other hand makeout every season, they've even been shown having actual sex on the show. There should be at least 5 reality shows with gay majority casts being open about their personal lives and showing us how real gay couples show affection by now, but instead they just canceled the only one on tv that did. People here shouldn't be glad, hell they should be protesting. Looks like we won't live to see true equality on reality tv, even on supposedly gay networks. We accept you as long as we don't have to ever be offended by your true lives. Welcome back to the closet.

oy, looks like we're going back to the sexless mannequin days of will&grace, lotsa gossip, snappy comments, but nothing going on below the waist. Wait kids, we don't need to see mature men making out in reality shows, we've got fake 1st time special episodes of glee instead! Logo seems to have done focus group testing and found that str8 audiences don't mind the gossip or the fashion, but they don't want to see man on man foreplay or anything physical like ass pinching or necking&kissing. I thought that was the whole message of the network, not to isolate us as weird aliens. We're only acceptable to general society if we don't show desire for each other, even on logo. Straight couples can have date nights, makeout sessions, be shown in bed, in the bathtub together romantically, etc. We can only show up for brunch fully clothed, and even then we can't kiss. If you don't see the horrible step backwards this cancellation is, you haven't studied the history of gays on reality tv or gay characters on tv in general. To be a gay man on television these days you have to be drained of any last ounce of testosterone, or you can play a str8 character like neil patrick harris and have all the onscreen sex you want.

Remember when longtime companion predicted a broadcast tv romantic kiss btw men like 25yrs ago? Now logo is putting open gay affection back in the closet. It's never been out of the closet on bravo, only gay mouth kisses during weddings or for comedic purposes are allowed there. SInce the 90's gay romantic openess has actually gone backwards on tv, a broadcast show thirtysomething dramatically had two guys cuddling naked in bed covered partly by sheets in post sexual bliss. Now instead we're all neutered little good children who look, talk, but never touch. Shameful.

Yes, celebrate the death of the only reality show (including on bravo) that regularly showed men kissing passionately on the mouth or being romantic or sexual in other ways. All that's left on tv is stepford wife eunics (it's a brad brad world is a great example, they act like uncomfortable robots when it comes to showing affection) or 1g5g, a yenta show built on a straight girl's curiousity about queer boy's weird sex lives. Imagine a show where a white host interviewed 5 black guys with stereotypical questions about their sex lives. Now you get a taste of how offensive that gay minstrel show is. I guess gay men will only get to watch real gay men being romantic and affectionate with each other in independent films or porn, it won't exist on cable t.v. Were the boys bimbos? Sure. Will you ever see two men half-naked making out on a couch on logo again? Don't hold your breath...

What I want to know is who's the keeper of these lists.

More likely it means they won't show gays in any way at all. Last year the report was that they want more straight programming to go more mainstream. They'll keep Drag Race but apparently not much else gay.

Oh the inhumanity, Logo! Does this mean they're going to create shows that don't show gays as ditzy, vicious, sex-obsessed, materialistic, phony examples of humankind, or does this mean they're dropping the gay push altogether?

I will not miss those guys. What do miss is what LOGO was.  It has become not worth the extra money to subscribe.

Now all those whiny "A list" stars can stop whining about how the editing made them look bad, and can go back to well earned anonymity.
