Logo today announced a series of new documentary films that showcase topical social issues and illuminate untold stories of LGBT individuals overcoming incredible odds. The upcoming slate from Logo Documentary Films includes stories of a professional athlete who battles and overcomes mental illness, soldiers who fall in love before seeing their romance ripped apart by war, and a group of female inmates who give real-life context to "Orange is the New Black." Last month, Logo Documentary Films earned its first Emmy nomination for "Matt Shepard is A Friend of Mine," which premiered last year and is nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award in the Outstanding Special Class Special category.
