What is going on at the BBC?

They used to have a gay message board but it was removed last year. And now a BBC local radio station in Manchester has said that it will stop its talk show for gay people in April.

Last year I emailed the diversity department and told them that the gay rights information on a "onelife" web page was very out of date.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/onelife/personal/relationships/lgb_rights.shtml

They said my email had been forwarded to colleagues at 'onelife' and thanked me for bringing it to their attention. That was on 21 December 2005, but the page stayed the same, and hasn't changed since I blogged it on 7 January 2006.

All in all, I have the impression that gay people are very low priority at the BBC.
