PBS has launched its Pride offerings and we’re excited about on short film in particular.
PBS LGBTQ+ Pride Month-related programming, which is free to audiences and currently available via the PBS Video App and PBS.org. We appreciate your consideration as you continue to compile your upcoming “What to Stream,” “What to Watch” and “Tune In” columns and thematic programming round-up articles celebrating and honoring the LGBTQ+ community.
“Senior prom” takes on a whole new meaning at Triangle Square, a haven for LGBTQ retirees in Hollywood, CA. For so many American high schoolers, prom is a rite of passage in all its high-expectation, love-filled, well-coiffed, abundantly photographed glory. But for LGBTQ+ generations that grew up in the decades before the Stonewall Riots, prom was emblematic of the exclusion and fear of living in a world they could not experience as their authentic selves. Now, tapping into their teenage selves, these liberated seniors ready themselves for the hottest event on the Triangle Square social calendar. Senior Prom celebrates an LGBTQ+ generation that spent a lifetime fighting for the right to live and love openly, retracing lives lived in resistance that helped change the course of civil rights.
Senior Prom on PBS Short Docs (Formerly LGBTQ+ Seniors Finally Get the Prom of Their Dreams) is now streaming.
Following its premiere on PBS Voices, Senior Prom will screen at several film festivals nationwide, including AFI Docs Film Festival and the Provincetown International Film Festival.
