True Colors United & FX Networks

By Charlotte Robinson, June 14, 2019
FX Networks has announced a new partnership with True Colors United to create & distribute self-care kits to charitable organizations that are committed to ending homelessness amongst our LGBTQ youth. The partnership was inspired by the second season of Pose the fabulous FX drama series that includes storylines addressing the consequences of homelessness, ranging from sexual abuse & exploitation, alcohol & drug abuse, in addition to challenges entering the job market. In the United States 4.2 million youth experience homelessness each year. LGBTQ youth are 120% more likely to experience homelessness than their non-LGBTQ peers. Gregory Lewis, Executive Director & CEO, True Colors Fund stated, "When it comes to homelessness, LGBTQ youth are overrepresented & underserved. We're proud to partner with FX Networks & Pose to put self-care kits into the hands of young people across the country. The organizations we're sending these to provide essential services to LGBTQ youth experiencing homelessness & make an incredible impact in their communities. United, we can create a world where every young person, wherever they live, is celebrated for being their authentic self." Kenya Hardaway, SVP of Integrated Promotions at FX Networks concluded, “We are very happy to be partnering with True Colors United on this initiative & appreciate the generosity of the brands that contributed to this effort. Pose has fearlessly shined a light on issues facing the LGBTQ community & we couldn’t think of a better way to mark the return of the series, than to bring support to those affected. Our hope is that this program will bring awareness to these amazing organizations & the incredible work they do.”
