USA & Syfy Celebrate National Pride Month With ‘Wynonna,’ ‘SVU’ & More Marathons
USA Network and Syfy are partnering with GLAAD for a campaign spotlighting positive representation for National Pride Month this June.
Both networks will feature Pride-themed marathons, custom short-form and fan videos, PSAs, podcast episodes, and more. Marathons on USA will include custom content with BD Wong (Law & Order: SVU).
“During a time when many Pride events have been cancelled, SYFY and USA are offering viewers a place to celebrate and feel celebrated with specialty content in honor of National Pride Month,” Chris McCumber, President, USA and SYFY, said. “We are so grateful for GLAAD’s partnership and advocacy towards positive representation, and look forward to joining together to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community throughout June.”
“SYFY and USA each have long histories of sharing LGBTQ stories that entertain, enlighten, and inspire and this Pride month will bring empowering content and series to fans all over,” GLAAD Chief Communications Officer Rich Ferraro added. “During a Pride month when many LGBTQ community members will not be able to gather in-person, LGBTQ visibility matters more than ever and SYFY and USA’s content will help to ensure the spirit of Pride still shines bright.”
