In honor of Pride Month, YouTube Originals has a diverse slate of programming they'll be launching throughout June. First up is State of Pride, a documentary that takes an unflinching at the significance of Pride 50 years after Stonewall, following activist and host Raymond Braun as he visits three diverse populations for series of intimate and honest interviews about the meaning of pride. State of Pride is available now. On June 5, they'll make the 2017 doc This Is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous available for free for the first time, followed by the June 26 premiere of doc Stonewall Outloud.
Did you know that a 2016 study by the J. Walter Thompson Innovation Group found that only 48 percent of Generation Z (those born in the late 1990s through mid-2000s) identified as "exclusively heterosexual," marking the first time a generation defined themselves as majority queer in some way, shape or form? Gen Z is leading the way on a more inclusive tomorrow, and queer Gen Z stars like singer Troye Sivan, trans actress Josie Totah, actress/activist Amandla Stenberg, and RuPaul's Drag Race season 10 winner Aquaria, to name but a few, are on the front lines. The future is fierce!
