Press Release: "Work for Diddy" veteran Rob Smith Presents: The Mocha Lounge

New York, NY:  October 17th, 2008 - I Want to Work for Diddy star and AfterElton.com blogger Rob Smith and About.com's gay lifestyle writer Ramon Johnson are launching The Mocha Lounge, a groundbreaking new show focusing on gay men of color in the media. The Mocha Lounge will be broadcast bi-weekly on AfterElton.com and Downelink.com, both properties of the LOGOonline Network which receives an average of 2.9 million unique visitors per month. An episode archive and regularly updated notification of personalities to be featured on the show can be found at www.mochalounge.blogspot.com. 

Robert Smith
"This show is here because now is the time to make a more concentrated effort to diversify the images in the gay community," says creator and executive producer Rob Smith (seen above). "The Mocha Lounge will definitely bring something fresh and new into the conversation."

The Mocha Lounge will cover politics, pop culture, and everything in-between with its gaze fixed on the gay men of color that populate all of these different areas. Mocha Lounge co-hosts Rob and Ramon will also engage in conversations and interviews with the hottest personalities, entertainers, and authors on the scene today! Hiding in Hip Hop author Terrance Dean and I Want to Work for Diddy star and first transwoman of color on reality television Laverne Cox will both appear in the Fall '08 season, which will air bi-weekly from October 16th through December 11th. 

The Mocha Lounge name comes from the hue that is a mixture of all the beautiful complexions of different gay men of color, and is an indication that nobody is to be left out. Co-host Ramon Johnson agrees. "This isn't about just black gay men, this is about us all. Gay men of color need this representation. That's why The Mocha Lounge is here."
