Philadelphia TV station launches LGBT-themed month

While a handful of local news stations may have camera crews filming Pride festivities in Philadelphia next month, one public-television channel will focus an entire month of programming on Philly's LGBT community.

MiND TV, which strives to promote social awareness and education, will celebrate LGBT Pride Month in June, with a series of on-air programs, as well as community events, to pay tribute to Philadelphia’s LGBT population and progress. LGBT community members are encouraged to submit their own five-minute videos — which can be centered on their coming-out stories, LGBT organizations, events or any other topic related to the LGBT community — to be included in a one-hour presentation airing at 8 p.m. June 23 and June 26 on MiND, which is channel 35 in Philadelphia. The shorts will also be aired on the JumboTron at the Piazza at Schmidt’s from 6-7 p.m. June 30.
