Fox kicked off the Pride Month of June with a #TVForAll social activation taking place across @FoxTV’s social pages. It discusses its approach to Pride in the above video, narrated by Nicole Schlesinger.
The network partnered with LGBQT+ advocacy organization GLAAD to host intimate conversations with past and present Fox talent as well as artists from GLAAD’s team. Each conversation is hosted on the Zoom video conferencing platform, and includes discussion of the evolution of representation in entertainment as well as pivotal LGBTQ+ moments in TV history. The conversations also discussed the Black Lives Matter movement, and how that is both impacting and inspiring Pride.
In addition, Fox commissioned photographer Syndey Claire to create portraits spotlighting LGBQT talent, including Call Me Kat’s Leslie Jordan and Cheyenne Jackson, The Masked Singer’s Raven-Symone and Bella Thorne, Bless the Harts’ Fortune Feimster, 9-1-1 Lone Star’s Rafael Silva and Brian Michael Smith, Bob’s Burgers’ John Roberts, and Glee’s Kevin McHale and Alex Newell.
The FoxFam Pride Photoshoot with Claire was inspired by her digital series, “Portraits in the Age of Quarantine.” Each photo was captured using a unique prism that created a rainbow, the symbol of Pride, across the photos. The photos will be showcased across Fox’s social channels all month.
