A six part series, all episodes of PRIDE will be available to stream on Star on Disney+ from Friday 25th June.

What is PRIDE about?

PRIDE has been made by a group of renowned LGBTQ+ directors – Andrew Ahn, Anthony Caronna and Alex Smith, Cheryl Dunye, Tom Kalin, Yance Ford and Ro Haber – who all chronicle the history of the struggle for LGBTQ+ rights in America.

Each episode is devoted to a decade, beginning with the 1950s – a time where there was a steep rise in US governmental regulations against the LGBTQ+ community, led by Senator Joseph McCarthy.

One episode features the activism and protests of the 1960s, while the 1970s episode uses archival footage and interviews to show how the decade saw the formation of a national movement and the growing strength of Gay Pride.

The series also focuses on the rise of the underground scene in the New York of the 1980s, the devastation of the AIDS epidemic, and how more acceptance for the LGBTQ+ community came about at the dawn of the 21st century.
