WorldPride 2019 was celebrated on the streets of New York City - 50 years after the Stonewall Riots, the catalyst of the Gay Rights movement. Now in 2020, parades and parties have been canceled due to COVID-19, and LGBTQ+ rights continue to be challenged around the globe. Community solidarity means more than ever this year without uniting in-person as the spirit of Pride goes on for individuals and organizations virtually.
This June, WORLD Channel turns to stories of the pioneers and modern-day youth who represent the LGBTQ+ flag 🏳️🌈. Pride month programming showcases encore films from American Masters (featuring the late Terrence McNally) to Reel South, premieres from America ReFramed (Little Miss Westie and Vision Portraits) and Pacific Heartbeat (Born This Way: Awa's Story and The Rogers), and the return of Doc World (Unsettled: Seeking Refuge in America).
Watch the films, join our events, and share your story on social using the hashtag #WORLDxPRIDE.
