June is LGBT Pride Month. To celebrate, you could always watch RENT for the 100th time (and if you have time, you should — that movie holds up). Although LGBT representation is still far from what it should be on the big screen, there are plenty of newer films that explore the queer experience and are worth checking out. You could stream a light comedy, even one that gained Oscar buzz. You could check out a tear-jerking drama or a documentary sure to make you cry. Or you could even watch the kind of musical that Glee was always trying to be.
So here's a starter list for your Pride movie night. These offer a quieter at-home option if you're skipping the parade this year. Or, at least they'll provide some entertainment as you recover.
We are celebrating people pushing kindness forward. We have partnered with Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation to help empower young people to build a "Kinder and Braver World." They are looking to partner to launch an initiative called “Channel Kindness” where they will be working with 29 US mayors to create communities of kindness and tap youth reporters to report on kindness in their communities.
What would a kinder, braver world look like? What would the news inspire us to do if it we were tuned in to all the GOOD in the world? Through this partnership, we will help people to see—and shout out—the kindness, possibility, and power of people.
