BET Updates Their LGBT Section


Usually the words BET and LGBT community don't conjure positive feelings or images. Lawd knows that gay folks are few and far between on the channel or usually ignored altogether. However, with the recent updates to their LGBT section on the station website, they seem to be taking a step in the right direction. The dreadful "How to Know If Your Man's Gay" section is gone. The page also includes info about important figures in the black LGBT community and a page that discusses (and debunks) common myths about gay people. Check it out here.

Well I'll be a monkey's uncle. Good for BET for getting with the time. I found that website refreshing. They even took the time to dispell the myths about LGBT peeps.
Loved it!
A step in the right direction.
