Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter announced today (June 11) the full programming details for the second annual Pride Summit and Prom, which will be held on Saturday (June 13) and feature a number of panels, tutorials, performances, conversations and more, leading up to the first-ever virtual Pride Prom.
The day-long online event kicks off at 12:30 p.m. ET with some opening remarks and a meditation led by Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors. Leading up to the 7 p.m. prom, fans will see performances and hear discussions with influential LGBTQ artists in the industry. Wilson Cruz, Jessica Hargrave and Ryan White – the team behind Apple TV+’s Visible: Out on Television – will participate in a panel discussion on LGBTQ representation in TV and film. Todrick Hall and Pose co-creator and executive producer Steven Canals will engage in an intimate conversation about their journeys in their respective fields.
Plus, Abby McEnany and Lilly Wachowski are confirmed for a rare conversation; and Boy George will share stories (preview his discussion here).
When the evening comes and it’s time to head to prom, Chris Appleton, George Kotsiopoulos and Patrick Starrr will help viewers get glammed up. Shea Diamond will then take over as emcee, and Hall will be crowned King and Queen of the Genderless Prom court, embracing the Gender Non-Conforming (GNC) movement. To top it all off, Tituss Burgess will provide his newly released single “Dance M.F.”
That only scratches the surface of the celebrities featured in the jam-packed event. Tune in on June 13 here.
