In honor of Pride Month, Paramount+ is launching a special collection of LGTBQ+ films and TV shows under the banner A Mountain of Pride. Beginning June 1, Paramount+ subscribers will be able to find over 235 movies and TV shows under this campaign for Pride Month. A Mountain of Pride spans 12 carousels featuring specific LGTBQ+ content for each category.

One of the carousels is dedicated to RuPaul, arguably the world’s most famous drag queen. RuPaul’s Drag Race is one of the shows in the collection, as the reality competition TV series searches for the next drag superstar. RuPaul has won seven consecutive Emmys for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Competition Program. The carousel includes RuPaul’s guest appearances in shows like Broad CityBubble Guppies, Sister, SisterSpongeBob SquarePants, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

Showtime prestige shows, like The L Word and Yellowjackets, are included in this collection.

For reality television fans, the new pansexual dating series Love ALLways is set to premiere on June 2. Other featured reality programs include Gay Chorus Deep South, George Michael: A Different Story, and Ex on the Beach. The collection also features a variety of movies spanning different eras, including A Chorus Line, Kinky Boots, and Fire Island.

Gay Pride & Prejudice creators on updating Jane Austen for the podcast age
Artwork for the Gay Pride & Prejudice podcast.

In the two centuries since her life and death, Jane Austen has been the go-to author for commentary on love and class. From Amy Heckerling's still relevant Emma update Clueless to Netflix's upcoming fourth-wall-breaking adaptation of Persuasion, her works are still in demand by creatives and audiences alike.

Her most famous novel, Pride & Prejudice, is getting not one but two queer adaptations this month. The first, Fire Island, reimagines the author's masterpiece as a sexual farce at a popular gay destination while Gay Pride & Prejudice utilizes the increasingly popular podcast medium to comment on the changing nature of queer relationships in the wake of the 2015 Supreme Court decision that affirmed marriage equality.

Stonewall Uprising (2010)
Stonewall Uprising tells the story of the June 1969 Stonewall Riots, which started when a police raid on the Stonewall Inn led to a three-day riot that united gay men, lesbians, and drag queens and compelled them to stand up for their rights.
This event is often seen as one of the more important events that helped spark the LGBTQ civil rights movement. Following the event, the country started seeing more and more pride marches and gay rights organizations. We now even celebrate the month of June as Pride Month.
