Pluto TV will launch OUTtv Proud channel during Pride Month

June marks the 53rd annual Pride Month, and Pluto TV is doubling down on LGBTQ+ content with the launch of a new channel, OUTtv Proud. And according to the announcement, that will entail a lot of RuPaul’s Drag Race marathons. The regular edition of RuPaul’s Drag Race will be featured on Logo Pluto TV every Monday through Thursday from 6 p.m. ET to 1 a.m. ET. Logo Pluto TV will also have marathons of the spinoff series, RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars, from Monday to Thursday during the hours of 3 p.m. ET to 6 p.m. ET, and again on Saturdays from 2 p.m. ET to 2 a.m. ET.

But Pride Month can not rest on RuPaul alone. That’s why Logo Pluto TV will also run marathons of Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce every Friday of the month from 8 p.m. ET to 2 a.m. ET. Additionally, Pluto TV’s Vevo channels will throw the spotlight on LGBTQ+ musical artists and queer-friendly music acts including Blondie, David Bowie, Freddie Mercury & Queen, Cyndi Lauper, Culture Club & Boy George, Muna, Omar Apollo, Kany García, Maria Becerra, and Ricky Martin.

The Pride Month celebration will also extend to Pluto TV’s movie channels. The Birdcage, In & Out, But I’m a Cheerleader, Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Kinky Boots, I Love You Phillip Morris, and Broken Hearts Club will be featured on Pluto TV Comedy. Pluto TV Love Stories has Date and Switch and The Wedding Banquet, with encore showings of In & Out and But I’m a Cheerleader. Many of these titles will also run on Cine Premiere.

This month, Pluto TV is also celebrating National Game Show Day by launching channels dedicated to The Price is Right: Drew Carey and Family Feud Classics. Nickelodeon’s teenage comedies iCarly, VICTORiOUS, and Sam & Cat will also have a new home on the Totally Teen channel.

On June 5, Pluto TV will also launch a new animated series called Shaq’s Garage. It’s a comedic fantasy that features Shaquille O’Neal and his Shaq Pack, a collection of cars that have come to life with the magic of AI. It’s not Shaq’s first animated role, and it probably won’t be his last.

For over five decades, 60 Minutes has been one of the top newsmagazine shows on television. However, CBS' signature news series hasn't had much of a streaming presence up to this point. That's going to change very soon, because Pluto TV is launching a dedicated 60 Minutes channel on its free streaming service.

To start things off, the new channel will feature 400 60 Minutes segments from 2008 to 2019, which draws from just over a decade of content. Some of the spotlight stories that will be immediately available include an interview with an ex-Navy SEAL who was on the mission to find Osama bin Laden inside his lair in Pakistan. Other stories include sit-down interviews with former Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, as well as nature reports focused on Yellowstone Park's wolves, as well as jaguars, elephants, eagles, and more creatures from around the world.

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.
