Katherine Linton is an award-winning producer, director, and showrunner who has been working on documentaries and series for stations like LOGO, Bravo, PBS, A&E, MTV, and HBO for more than 25 years. The content she creates is heavily LGBTQ+-focused, and Linton even brought queer issues to the national television screen as early as 1993 with “In the Life,” an LGBTQ+ newsmagazine. Her work is heavily-awarded, too. Linton wrote and produced “AIDS: A Pop Culture History” for VH1, which won her a Cable Poz Award for Best History Documentary and was nominated for a GLAAD Award for Outstanding TV Journalism, and “Black Las Vegas: In Through the Backdoor,” which was given the International Television Competition World Medal and a Bronze Telly. But it’s not the awards that keep Linton going; it’s the people she meets and the stories she gets to hear. “I get to go to people’s homes and see where they live and learn what it’s like locally and in their families directly,” she says. “And in doing research for any project, I speak to even more people than I meet. I get the pulse from the source.” To fuel her connection-based documentaries, Linton launched her own production company, Linton Media, in 2004 with “The Evolution Will Be Televised,” a 90-minute special that launched the LOGO TV network. In 2019, she created, co-directed, and wrote “Rebellion! Stonewall,” and MSNBC special about the gay rights movement and the Stonewall Uprising. Linton’s latest project was a one-hour broadcast special and digital series called “Prideland” about queer people living with immense obstacles in the deep South. —IL
