Set to kick off on Friday, June 4, and running all the way until Tuesday, June 8, the digital festival is celebrating all things LGBTQ+ TV by hosting over 18 panels with some of the masterminds behind our current faves titles, like Paramount+'s Star Trek: Discovery, VH1's RuPaul's Drag Race, HBO Max's Genera+ion, Hulu's Love, Victor, and so many more! And the best part about the digital event? All the panels are absolutely FREE to watch on the Outfest Now app

"The OutFronts festival aims to highlight the diverse representation of LGBTQ+ characters on screen, spanning across several genres and styles as queer and trans representation continues to increase across television and cinema," the official description of the fan-driven digital event reads. "The community, and these show fandoms, will have the opportunity to hear directly from the creators of this programming and have an inside look at the process of bringing their favorite characters and stories to life."

"Outfest has had a tradition of being a place where the networks have come to premiere and discuss their queer stories on network and streaming television — from Ugly BettyBrothers and SistersGleeTransparentLove, VictorThe TwentiesDavid Makes Man and more. We are now in an incredible place in television with LGBTQ content and overwhelming fan support," Damien S. Navarro, Outfest's executive director, said in a statement about the creation of the new, digital event. "I remember when it wasn’t too long ago that the only place to go for cutting edge queer stories and content would be in cinema and independent films. More often now it's on television, streaming, and digital content, making it much more accessible to various audiences. Instead of fitting these shows into one of our film festivals, we recognized that fans should have the opportunity to come together and celebrate these stories as well as our filmmakers, alumni, and industry partners. That is why we are excited to embrace this moment and bring The Outfronts to the world."

The OutFronts is running June 4-8 and is free to watch on the Outfest Now streaming app! For more information, including the full schedule of panels and to RSVP for a panel, make sure to check out The OutFronts' official website
