YouTube has greenlighted a documentary that will focus on the impact the Pride movement has had on the LGBTQ community.
“State of Pride” will be directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman — who worked together on “The Celluloid Closet” and the Academy Award-winning “Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt” – and will feature interviews conducted by Raymond Braun, former YouTube LGBT marketing lead.
Braun will travel across the U.S., attending Pride events in major cities and smaller towns and interviewing individuals about how the movement has impacted them.
“We are incredibly honored to bring this important and compelling documentary “State of Pride” to people around the world,” said Susanne Daniels, YouTube’s global head of original content. “The film features powerful conversations with inspiring individuals as they open up about Pride and how it has changed over the past 50 years.”
YouTube will release the film on its free, ad-supported site and is planning a June 2019 debut.
