Nationally Recognized Authority on LGBTQ Campus Life Provides Resources to Show’s Fans
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Today, Campus Pride, the leading organization dedicated to building future leaders and creating safer, more inclusive communities for LGBTQ people and allies at colleges and universities, announced a partnership with Max Original dramedy “Genera+ion,” which premiered with three episodes March 11, 2021 on HBO Max and drops new episodes every Thursday.
Now in its 20th year, Campus Pride utilizes its resources and expertise to expand the discussions surrounding some of the themes depicted in “Genera+ion,” with the creation of the Campus Pride Ultimate Queer College Guide. This education guide gives students, prospective students, and their families resources to help find the LGBTQIA+ friendly college that’s right for them, best practices for applying to the schools of their choice, and tips on how to be an ally for queer people of color.
“Campus Pride is excited at this unique opportunity to join and enhance the conversation that is being started with ‘Genera+ion,” said Shane Windmeyer, Executive Director of Campus Pride. “Representation of LGBTQ people in the media has changed so much in just a few short years, and it is encouraging to see creators from HBO Max wanting to use their microphone to educate and inform, not just entertain, audiences.”
SPECIAL ADVANCE SCREENING – RSVP NOW: Campus Pride will team up with NewFest and The Phluid Project on a special advance screening of the final episode of “Genera+ion” season 1a on March 30-31, giving LGBTQ+ campus communities across the country a chance to be the first to screen the highly anticipated episode.
