PRIDE NEWSLETTER - 6/07/24

Hi Fam 🌈

How’s your Pride month going so far? Here at PRIDE we are fully getting into the spirit of the season — but then with so much queer excellence coming forward and even coming out, how could we not?

We’re absolutely everywhere from on stages in WeHo to in the Traitors castle, and even in a galaxy far, far away. PRIDE caught up with a few of our faves including Nina West who gives us the inside tea on Drag Race All Stars 9, Pentatonix singer Scott Hoying and his hubby Mark share a huge life development, and the cast ofPretty Little Liars: Summer Schoolbreaks down the latest, super queer episode.

And that's not even close to all! We explain the WNBA drama between Angel Reese and Caitlin Clark and dig into the discourse around who belongs at Pride, giggle over Pride memes, and send some serious side-eye Trump’s way for panicking over a very easy Epstein-related question. 🤨

And of course, PRIDE rolled out our very first ever Grand Marshal, and who else could it be than the G-O-D-D-E-S-S herself, Sasha Colby!

What a week!

Plus, check out what the staff of PRIDE have been up to this week below! ⬇️

Cheers!

🎧 In our ears: Brat by XCX

Hot gays-and-girlies summer has a new soundtrack and it's Brat by XCX and yes, we're in FULL Sherlock Homo mode trying to figure out who 'Girl, so confusing' is about. I guess we have no choice but to listen, on repeat. Available now, everywhere.
