Recently their parent company Regent Entertainment won the Best Foreign Film Academy Award for “Departures.”…:) We discussed Sean Penn & Dustin Lance Black Oscar wins for “Milk.” BTW, their moving acceptance speeches & any references to “Milk” & our LGBT community were edited from the Broadcast in India.
In America our presence on Primetime Television has increased, but after 2 more episodes, Showtime's “the L word” will end eliminating any shows left on mainstream TV based on LGBT characters.
