In celebration of pride month, REVRY, a digital streaming platform dedicated to showcasing entertainment related to the LGBTQ+ experience, will become the exclusive LGBTQ+ channel of Pluto TV.
Starting today, which also marks REVRY’s one year anniversary, viewers can watch REVRY’s Queerated programming that features a mix of iconic and original digital series on channel 429.
The channel will be the host to classics such as “Parting Glances,” “Watermelon Woman” (first movie by an openly lesbian black director), “Before Stonewall,” and the complete series “Queer as Folk” from the UK.
Other examples of REVRY’s queertastic programming include; “First Girl I Loved,” fresh from Sundance 2016; “Gendernauts,” Monika Treut’s feature-length documentary exploring the worlds of transgendered individuals in San Francisco; and Basil Shadid’s “Drag Becomes Him,” the acclaimed film chronicling the rise to fame of Jinkx Monsoon, Vaudevillian revivalist performer and crowned queen of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”
“This community has an amazing number of untold stories that deserve to be broadcasted to a wide audience,” said Tom Ryan, CEO of Pluto TV. “We are honored to provide REVRY with a platform to distribute these stories to big and small screens around the world.”
In addition its Queerated selection of licensed titles, the REVRY Pluto TV channel will also feature the REVRY Original Series, “Gayborhood,” a mockumentary faux reality series about a group of friends living in the Boystown section of Chicago.
“Joining the Pluto TV channel line-up enables REVRY to expand beyond our core LGBTQ+ community to a broader cord-cutting Millennial and Gen Z audience that also has a strong appreciation for our queer take on comedy, drama, horror, docs, talk and more,” said Damian Pelliccione, CEO and co-founder REVRY.
