Photo Credit: Getty Images"][/caption]Wanda Sykes has joined the Logo team and, come September, will host a series of two election specials for the network, NewNowNext Vote With Wanda Sykes, aimed to educate, activate and entertain viewers, while shining a spotlight on the state of national politics through an LGBT lens.
Among the issues discussed will be gay marriage, Supreme Court appointments, the economy and healthcare. Added to the mix will be of-the-moment commentary sparked by the trending news from the campaign trail.
Sykes says of her new role, “I'm excited to be working with Logo, the network that offers a voice to the LGBT community. These specials will be thought provoking, exciting and the perfect forum to discuss important issues facing our community."
She also added, "Plus, it is Logo so maybe I'll get to dress in drag!”
The first of two, one-hour specials will air four days after the Democratic National Convention on Monday, September 10 at 10PM ET/PT followed by a second special on election-eve on Monday, November 5 on Logo.
