NEW YORK (AP) — A monthly public television newsmagazine focusing on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues is shutting down after its December episode.

The company that makes “In the Life” will be dissolved and its archive of materials will eventually be made available online. The interim executive director of In the Life Media says difficulty in funding the newsmagazine was partly responsible for the shutdown.

“In the Life” began as a variety show in 1992 and evolved into a newsmagazine. It is available at the beginning of each month and is shown on about 200 public television stations at different times.

Interim Director Ellen Carton says she believes the show has helped raise awareness and has led to progress in gay marriage rights and other issues.
