By Charlotte Robinson, April 26, 2022

NYC Pride in partnership with Tribeca have announced Pride Presents a unique cinematic event celebrating LGBTQ+ film during Pride. This year’s feature film “Disclosure” will make its film festival debut on the East Coast at Spring Studios on June 17th at 7P EDT. Samantha Marie Johnson, Senior Manager for Pride Presents stated, “After being away for several years, it is with great pleasure that we bring our Film Festival back to this year’s Pride events fully in-person with Disclosure, introduced by Laverne Cox, as our feature film. By providing limited free registration for this year’s Pride Presents, we are creating a space for community while making these important stories accessible to a new audience.” Lucy Mukerjee, Senior Programmer, Tribeca Festival concluded, “This year’s Pride Presents event is an opportunity for NYC Pride and Tribeca to join forces with Laverne Cox & the Disclosure team to engage the NYC community in the urgent matter of protecting & prioritizing the dignity, safety & wellbeing of trans people across the nation.” “Disclosure” is a documentary that takes an in depth look at transgender depictions in film & television revealing how Hollywood simultaneously reflects & manufactures our deepest anxieties about gender. Leading trans thinkers & creatives like Laverne Cox, Lilly Wachowski, Yance Ford, Mj Rodriguez, Jamie Clayton & Chaz Bono share their reactions & resistance to some of Hollywood’s most beloved moments. Two short films will also be screened at this free event “Beautiful They” & “Leaf Boa”. Heritage of Pride, Inc. is the volunteer-directed organization behind the official NYC Pride roster of events that inspire, educate, commemorate & celebrate our diverse community. For More Info…
