Contemporary fashion brand Theory’s Be Heard IGTV Panel Series aims to empower and educate by bringing diverse voices together in conversation. This month, GLAAD partnered with them on a Pride-themed panel moderated by Head of Talent Anthony Ramos and featuring writer, actor and activist Nico Tortorella, and singer and actor Alex Newell.
The trio discussed the Black Lives Matter Movement and shared their own experiences being their true selves in the entertainment industry as well as addressing what is different about Pride in 2020. As stated by Newell, Pride is about “having the conversation of coming together,” even without the traditional parades and celebrations.
