There is a SLEW of LGBTQ programming to enjoy on Hulu during the Pride Month of June including a terrific new documentary, Changing The Game and the debut of the 2nd season of Love, Victor. PLUS, the fantastic FX docuseries PRIDE and some exciting new queer content series from around the globe!
Via press release:
Hulu is proud to premiere the Hulu Original Film Changing The Game, a documentary that follows trans teen athletes, and the second season of Original Series Love, Victor. New licensed series Rurangi will also be streaming on the platform this month along with The Obituary of Tunde Johnson.
Hulu’s evergreen LGBTQ+ Hub will be expanded to include 12 collections including new Trans Stories and Multicultural Stories collections. The hub features dozens of favorite series and films.
Emmy® award-winning filmmaker Michael Barnett’s urgent and subsuming sports documentary illuminates what many have called the civil rights issue of our time: transgender inclusion in sports. CHANGING THE GAME takes us into the lives of three high school athletes—all at different stages of their athletic seasons, personal lives, and unique paths as transgender teens. Their stories span across the U.S. — from Sarah, a skier and teen policymaker in New Hampshire, to Andraya, a track star in Connecticut openly competing on the girls track team. The film centers on Mack Beggs, who made headlines when he became the Texas State Champion in girls wrestling – as a boy.
The popular teen dramedy returns as Season 2 finds a newly out of the closet Victor entering his junior year at Creekwood High. But being out brings with it new challenges, as Victor faces a family struggling with his revelation, a heartbroken ex-girlfriend in Mia, and the difficulties of being an openly gay star athlete — all while navigating the excitement of his relationship with Benji.
