Caitlin Cahow to Serve as Logo TV's First Olympic Columnist
Logo TV, Viacom's television, digital and social brand focused on the LGBT community, today announced that two-time Olympic medalist and three-time World Champion women's hockey player, Caitlin Cahow, will serve as Logo's first ever Olympic columnist. Cahow, who was part of the Presidential Olympic Delegation during the opening ceremonies, will write a series of articles exclusively for LogoTV.com highlighting her experiences in Sochi as an openly gay woman, her experiences as a gay athlete during the 2006 and 2010 Winter Olympic Games. In addition, Cahow will provide her observation of the people, politics and news set to define the games.
With the world's attention on Sochi right now for the Winter Olympics as well as their laws that do not share in the same diversity as many fellow nations in the world share on LGBT issues, I am appreciative that Logo is providing me with a platform to share my first-hand accounts and observations during this critical time in the history of global human rights," said Cahow.
Logo TV's editorial team will also be covering the games across its web, mobile and social sites highlighting the personalities, politics and events that will define the games, including an interview with Olympic speed skater, Blake Skellerup, who discussed coming out and how Russia's anti-gay stance will effect Olympic athletes.
Additionally, "Logo Town Hall: Russia vs. The Gays" will be available for free and on-demand streaming throughout the run of the games. The one-hour special, which originally debuted in September, explores the facts and myths surrounding the "gay propaganda" law and the international backlash, which included a boycott on Russian products, as well as the controversy surround the US participation in the Sochi Olympic Games.
