Description of Artwork: "G/L Magazine," a gay news-and-entertainment show, produced for public access television.

The Incident: Denver Community Television (DCTV) refused to air two episodes of Anthony Palange's "G/L Magazine," asserting that they were "obscene." Palange then filed suit with the aid of the ACLU in Denver. Under federal cable television laws, public access channels are public forums, and neither a city nor an agency to which a city delegates the function of administering public access TV may censor the content of programs. In the case of "G/L Magazine" there had never been any judicial determination that the programs met the legal standard for obscenity. The episodes did not even contain nudity.

Results of Incident: In early November 1993, "G/L Magazine" resumed broadcasting.
