Q:I Just wanted to point something out in regards to the post submitted about more representation by the LGBT community. The post makes it seem like that RT is a place full of characters being wacky instead of real people and asking a request like that (in my opinion) makes assumptions that it's all a scripted show all the time. RT is a company full of real people and they can't exactly force representation of the community if someone doesn't exactly want to be on camera all the time.
Agreed. It can’t be forced. You are just encouraged to be yourself. If you happen to be out and proud, more power to ya. Everyone feels safe and welcome so there is absolutely no need to be closeted. It is merely a coincidence that most of the LGBT people here are not exactly “on camera” talent, and thus would do poorly doing any sort of representation. But it’s not that we don’t want to! If anyone reaches out to me to discuss LGBT issues in a podcast, for example, I’d totally jump in and awkward it up :P
Random thought: I could totally see RT setting up a booth at Austin Pride, though.

" I first found 636 when I was looking at a building next door. I wandered around, unimpressed by the space but then saw this fenced in non-descript building next door and almost immediately felt a connection to it, even though it was a hideous mustard color." -Burnie Burns
