Music, Movies, TV – An Insider’s Perspective

June is LGBTQ Pride Month

Over the past couple of years “Pride Month” was celebrated online with virtual events due to the global pandemic. This year the celebrations return with the in-person fabulous festivities we are known for.

The celebrations resume with parades, festivals, parties, concerts, marches, music, movies and more!

Across America and the world, streets will be filled with millions of LGBTQ+ people and their allies that will join in peace and unity to celebrate their rich history and bright future.

Pride events bring awareness to the LGBTQ+ experience and community. The parades celebrate their accomplishments, growth, visibility, contributions to society, the creativity of the people and the freedom to be themselves.

We are everywhere and we will proudly show the world the beauty and importance of our people and culture throughout June.

Each year the celebrations seem to get BIGGER & BETTER. There was a time in which you could only find parades and festivals in major cities but now there are festivities and events in small cities and towns across the globe.

If you want to attend a Pride celebration near you, use this link for a calendar of events.

You can filter your search by country, state, or city.

If you can’t attend an in-person event, invite your friends, family, and LGBTQ allies to your home or to a park for your own celebration.

I always enjoy having a BBQ with good friends, great music, and classic LGBTQ+ films. If you are looking for a great selection of movies and music for your own PRIDE celebration…..Take a look at these MOVIES…

And MUSIC titles…

I particularly love my new, “fab” rainbow lava lamp that I found here.

This brings me to “WHY” I love writing about many of the products found at www.deepdiscount.com. In my past life as a music buyer for a large entertainment chain I understood our customers and I took pride in bringing in products that made them happy.

Before I started my blog I looked over the selection at Deep Discount and I was impressed by the DEEP SELECTION of product and titles they had to offer. They truly have EVERYTHING, including hard-to-find music and movie titles that collectors often look for. “DEEP DISCOUNT” offers a DEEP SELECTION along with DEEP DISCOUNTS for you. I am proud of the selection I can offer you in my blog.

Check back throughout the month to hear about some of my favorite LGBTQ+ titles and another one of my favorite things about in June…“African Music Appreciation Month”

As I mentioned in my first Pride post, annual Pride festivals and celebrations continue through the summer at different times depending on the city you are in, or near. You may know how we love to find reasons to have more parties and PARADES. One is NEVER enough. In keeping with that spirit, this post is about a movie that proudly celebrated this culture, and broke through boundaries.

“THE BOYS IN THE BAND”

What could possibly happen if a straight man shows up at a party full of gay men?

I had a similar HILARIOUS incident that happened to me, join me at the end of this feature for that little dilemma.
