Revy, the global Queer TV network, 75% founded by people of color and 50% Black women, has already championed Black voices with its existing Black Lives Matter curation of films, series, and music videos. Revry celebrates Black History Month with an entire February calendar highlighting incredible Black Queer content made by and for the community.
“Black History Month is a time to celebrate the rich heritage and contributions of Black Americans. It is especially poignant in this moment in history because we are so divided as a nation,” says Black Revry Co-Founder and Army Veteran, LaShawn McGhee. “Taking the time to highlight Black Americans and more specifically Queer Black American voices that unapologetically explore the Black Queer experience is a necessity, and I’m proud to be able to do that through Revry.”
To kick off Black History Month, Revry will premiere three new powerfully entertaining documentaries on February 1st: We Can’t Breathe, Voguing the Message, and Heavenly Brown Body. Throughout the month, brand new content will continue to premiere including series like Miseducated, Boys Hurt Too, His Story, and Exhale. In addition, Revry Originals will also be featured including Linish about international trans DJ phenom; the Australian comedy Little Sista; To Be Me starring Emmy winner Kim Estes; and the powerful intersection of Black and Queer conversation series, Amplify Voices.
This month is an opportunity for audiences to find even more free Black entertainment playing on Revry’s Live Linear channels and On-Demand at www.watch.revry.tv.
