In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising in New York, the new docu-series Pride – The LGBTQ+ History Series follows award-winning filmmakers Mark Kenneth Woods and Michael Yerxa as they travel to different Pride celebrations around the globe to learn about LGBTQ+ history and how it can inform our communities going forward.
Over six episodes, the series will travel to various pride celebrations in New York City, Salt Lake City, Hong Kong, Palm Springs, Calgary and Berlin.
Perhaps best known as the ‘outspoken’ original cast member on Logo TV and MTV Canada’s 1 Girl 5 Gays, producer/director Yerxa has worked behind the scenes as a producer on some of Canada’s most successful factual television shows including The Amazing Race Canada, Canada’s Smartest Person and Still Standing.
