Comcast NBCUniversal stands with the LGBTQ+ community in celebrating Pride all year long. We have a longstanding commitment to create a more equitable, just, and inclusive company for our employees, customers, and communities, and Pride Month provides a special opportunity to recognize the remarkable contributions of the LGBTQ+ community to our company and country.
Pride is Universal
We are uniquely positioned to leverage our platforms to share stories from the LGBTQ+ community. From our representation in front of and behind the camera to our Xfinity LGBTQ+ Film & TV Collection – we are committed to giving our audiences experiences that celebrate pride all year long.
Xfinity LGBTQ+ Film & TV
For over a decade, Xfinity’s LGBTQ+ Film & TV Collection has celebrated and spread the joy of universal Pride by offering an unparalleled entertainment destination featuring community-recommended content. But Pride month doesn’t end in June with Xfinity. View all things Pride on X1, Flex, and Xfinity Stream year-round.
Comcast Newsmakers will release new interviews with champions of the LGBTQ+ community, including Melanie Willingham-Jaggers, the first Black, nonbinary Executive Director of GLSEN. Conversations focus on issues including transgender and racial equity, LGBTQ+ business ownership, representation in STEM careers, and the state of equality today. Watch on all Xfinity platforms using the “Comcast Newsmakers” voice command.
Pride Is Universal
NBCUniversal’s “Pride Is Universal: Better Together” campaign commemorates a series of firsts from the LGBTQ+ community as we continue to change history and make progress – from gay marriage and job protections to NBCUniversal’s long history of breaking down barriers in entertainment.
NBCUniversal has long been committed to LGBTQ+ representation such as the June 9 premiere of Queer as Folk on Peacock – which includes an all-queer writers’ room – to Bros, Universal’s upcoming film praised as being the first major studio film with an all openly LGBTQ+ cast.
Our Longstanding Commitment
Comcast NBCUniversal has been committed to supporting the LGBTQ+ community for decades through our public support, platforms, programming, employees, and more. Read more about our support through the years.
All month long and beyond, our employees are participating in activities to underscore our commitment to the LGBTQ+ community. Teammates will gather for educational sessions, Pride parades, movie screenings, and more throughout the country. This commitment spans decades, with the OUT Employee Resource Group (ERG) at NBCUniversal founded in 1986 as one of the nation’s first LGBTQ+ focused ERGs.
Comcast NBCUniversal is proud to partner with organizations dedicated to LGBTQ+ equality. We are also committed to supporting our communities in advancing digital equity and improving opportunity for all.
Human Rights Campaign
Comcast NBCUniversal has signed on to the Human Rights Campaign’s business statement on anti-LGBTQ+ state legislation, and last year, joined the business coalition in support of the Equality Act. And for the ninth time in ten years, we were named a "Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality."
As part of our partnership with GLAAD, the world’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer media advocacy organization, Comcast NBCUniversal donated airtime for a GLAAD PSA titled “Protect Our Families,” spotlighting a family and their transgender teenage son.
Comcast’s WiFi-connected “Lift Zones” are designed to support students and adults with free access to the Internet in community centers nationwide, including the LGBT Center of Greater Reading in Pennsylvania, The Center on Colfax in Colorado, and the Compass Gay Lesbian Community Center in Florida.
