In honor of Pride Month in June, Spectrum is celebrating the LGBTQ+ community by offering customers an On Demand collection of free TV shows and movies for rent. From June 1 to June 30, Spectrum TV customers can find free scripted and reality series under the category LGBTQ+ in the On Demand portal under TV Shows, depending on their level of video service. Among the shows featured are “Good Trouble,” a scripted series about sisters navigating young adulthood in Los Angeles; and the reality shows “I Am Jazz,” about a transgender teenager growing up in South Florida; and “Family Karma,” about Indian-American families in Miami.
Also in the On Demand portal, customers can access a wide range of movies for rent under the Pride Month category, including “The Wedding Banquet,” about a man who is not open about his sexuality with his Taiwanese parents; “The Danish Girl,” inspired by the artist Einar Wegener as she prepares to undergo one of the earliest-known sex-change operations in the 1920s; “La Cage Aux Folles,” the French classic about a couple who operate a nightclub for drag performers; the rock musical “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” which tells the story of a transgender singer from East Berlin; and “Brokeback Mountain,” about two cowboys who meet in Wyoming and begin a complicated, decades-long relationship.
