LGBTQ-First Network Revry Honors Queer Talent at the 7th Annual QueerX Awards
National Coming Out Day is for recognizing those with the strength to finally “come out” to their loved ones and encouraging and empowering those who have yet to find the right moment to speak their truth. LGBTQ-focused media outlets have taken on the responsibility of increasing awareness and recognition in past years so that they may empower their viewers to embrace their beautiful, true identity.
One outlet, in particular, Revry, is an LGBT-first television network that has prided itself in “challenging the status quo” by producing quality queer content for everyone to feel a connection with in some way.
Revry is gearing up for its 7th annual QueerX Awards, which has “allowed Revry to unapologetically shine a light on all the things that make queer culture so special,” said the CEO and Co-founder of Revry, Damian Pelliccione. The award show airs on National Coming Out Day and, in past years, has already provided the world with memorable moments such as “Jennifer Lopez presenting her ‘nibling’ with a Visibility Award for their bravery or President Joe Biden addressing the LGBT community 3 weeks before the 2020 election.”
With nominees including Beyonce, Kim Petras, Christina Aguilera, Big Freda, Gus Kensworthy, Christian Siriano, Jarrod Carmichael and more. The night will also include “special performances by rapper Kidd Kenn and Mexican Music Superstars Ninel Conde and Fedro; this year’s show is the most joyous yet.”
The network’s CEO and co-founder continued, “The 2022 show has expanded into a full-stop celebration of the best of all things queer: music, sports, drag, and even gaming!”
The queer visibility doesn’t end there. Revry is also premiering the first season of their drag competition series Drag Latina, which will air on the platform on October 16th, 2022. “We love to challenge the programming status quo and offer Drag Latina as a challenge to the notion that drag competitions should be restricted by geography, cultures and language,” said Chris Rodriguez, Chief Business Officer and co-founder of Revry. “At Revry’ queer” is a culture that transcends socio-economic status, race, language, and nationality; its inclusive of everyone.”
