World of Wonder has some great shots from last night, taken by Tharin Smothers. I was really happy to pose for a quick snap with Brian Graden, network exec extraordinaire. I already wanted to have his children before Logo started, because he is a key player in the development of South Park. I remember watching a viral videocassette of “The Spirit of Christmas” (which Brian commissioned) in about 1994 at a Denver animation studio, long before the show was even around. Tears were streaming down my face as I watched it, and I couldn’t breathe from laughing so hard. And it takes a lot to make me laugh.
Brian is one of the most influential people in LGBT media and has made a real commitment to trans-themed programming on Logo. One of many great people involved in making this show happen on the corporate side.
