LGBT History Month is an annual observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, and civil rights movements during the month of October and coincides with National Coming Out Day on October 11. It provides an opportunity to shine a spotlight on LGBTQ community member achievements and voices with a unique collection of stories and features including:
Community Recommendations: Film & TV featured curations from some of the LGBTQ community’s leading organizations. Newly added collections feature Out&Equal, GLAAD, GLSEN, PFLAG, Trevor Project to name just a few.
Community Pioneers: Spotlight on LGBTQ pioneers including Marsha P. Johnson, Harvey Milk, Vito Russo, Edith Windsor and Equality Forum’s LGBT History Month Icons.
I’m From Driftwood: This story archive captures personal first-person stories and includes the "What Was It Like" Elders Series and conveys the perspective of a generation that was told to keep their stories and lives in the closet (premiers on Xfinity).
Frameline Films: Expanding Gender: Youth Out Front series features a diverse set of young people speaking about gender in an open and inclusive way.
Featured Documentaries and Biopics: Brush up on your history and "must-see" films including Game Face, Political Animals, Edie & Thea; A Very Long Engagement, Matt Shepard is a Friend of Mine and Paris is Burning.
No matter the time of year, diverse and inclusive stories will always find a home on Xfinity. The entertainment we see on television should reflect the diversity of all communities, and this has never been truer for our LGBTQ friends and family. We encourage everyone to find yourself within the Xfinity LGBTQ Film & TV Collection. Simply say "Pride" or "LGBTQ" into your X1 Voice Remote to view the full LGBTQ Film & TV Collection.
