Logo, the formerly LGBT-centric network that a year ago today announced it was expanding its programming to more general lifestyle focus to reflect "gays and lesbians' increasing integration into mainstream culture today and their desire for shows that appeal to their multiple interests," has unveiled its spring doc lineup.

"WHAT!? Logo Documentaries" takes a somewhat different approach than, say, HBO's documentary programming -- the lineup below walks the line between docs and reality fare. "The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling," at least, premiered at Hot Docs and rounded the festival circuit ahead of this TV debut. Here's the list, descriptions courtesy of the network.
