Max unveils Pride initiatives for 2024

As June approaches, MAX is gearing up to amplify Pride Month with a spectacular lineup of initiatives aimed at uplifting LGBTQ+ storytelling, fostering dynamic partnerships, curating engaging content, and hosting exciting events throughout the month. This year, MAX is set to be “The One to Watch” for anyone looking to “Feel Your Pride,” promising a diverse array of queer content and experiences that celebrate the richness and diversity of the LGBTQ+ community.

From groundbreaking documentaries like “Gaga Chromatica Ball” to the heartfelt journeys depicted in We’re Here,” “Fantasmas,” “Trixie Motel: Drag Me Home” and “Am I Ok?”, MAX will spotlight a wide range of queer narratives. Throughout June, MAX will update its LGBTQ+ Voices page with fresh curated content, including thematic collections like “Presenting with Pride,” “Pride in Every Story,” “Beyond the Binary,” and “Queer Film Club,” accompanied by custom artwork, all in celebration of Pride Month on a global scale.

One of the highlights of MAX’s Pride Month celebrations is the official “House of Drag” viewing party, set to take place in Brooklyn, New York, on June 16th. Hosted by Priyanka from the fourth season of WE’RE HERE, this sold-out event promises an unforgettable evening featuring a “Battle for the Iron Throne” that will unite the queer fandom of House of the Dragon with the broader community for a special Pride event filled with fan experiences and more. Due to popular demand, a limited number of additional tickets for the “House of Drag” viewing party are now available.
