How To Show Your Pride If You Can't Get Down To A Celebration
Can't get down to celebrate Pride in person this weekend? No sweat because we've got the next best thing to help you a have a Pride party in your very own living room and it comes in the form of a brand new pop-up channel called MTV Pride.
Yep, between Friday June 24th and Sunday Jue 26th, Sky channel 356 will become home to the UK's very first pop channel inspired by, but not limited to, the LGBT+ community.
This is a channel that's all about love; loving yourself and others around you. It's a celebration of all things Pride and overwhelmingly, a celebration of life.With The Vengaboys stepping up to host the channel, they'll be bringing along plenty of awesome music, chat and live shows from artists including Little Mix and Years & Years. If you need something to get you in the mood before your night out then there'll also be shows including Lip-Sync For Your Life and Turn Up The Sass! Party Warm Up hitting the airwaves over the weekend.
It doesn't end there either and MTV Pride will also have coming out stories from a whole load of faves including Troye Sivan, Courtney Act from RuPaul's Drag Race and MTV's own Geordie Shore stars Marnie and Nathan.
The takeover will also be encouraging all you lot watching to celebrate the spirit of the weekend by getting involved in the #nofilter campaign – living life with no filter, standing proud and celebrating authenticity throughout the world - a message which MTV Pride is joining with Pride in London to share.
If Snapchat Discover is more your scene then you're also in for a RIGHT TREAT as the MTV account will also be hosting a Pride takeover on Saturday from 11am GMT.
Don't forget to swing by and say HIYA. We'll see you there (we're the ones wearing the rainbow coloured e v e r y t h i n g, just FYI).
