Mark June 27th on your calendars, Disney lovers! Why? Because Disney+ is giving us all a live celebration of Pride via their YouTube channel and Facebook. They’re closing out Pride Month by going all out on a virtual variety show celebrating the LGBTQIA+ Community.
Now, on to the lovely people we’ll be seeing this Sunday. You know Nina West from RuPaul’s Drag Race? Yeah, she’s the host. Yay! Nina is amazing, we can’t wait to see her hosting This Is Me on June 27, at 8:00 pm EST. The show will go live on both Disney+’s YouTube channel and Facebook page simultaneously.
As you can see by the poster, the line-up of musical performances for the night is nothing short of awesome! We’re especially hyped to see Frankie Rodriguez and Joe Serafini from High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. They’re too cute together, can you blame us? Also, Hayley Kiyoko will kill it on Sunday, we just know it! And yes, Kermit The Frog is pretty cool too.
One last thing we really want to talk about: you may recognize Ann Marie Pace from when we talked about Disney+’s Launchpad shorts. That’s because she directed Growing Fangs, one of our faves from that first season. We fell in love with Ann Marie’s work when watching the short, seeing her direct this awesome project for Disney+ is just perfection. All we’re saying is that we don’t need to be psychic to know this celebration will be great.
Will you join us in watching This Is Me on Sunday? Tell us in the comments or tweet us @TheHoneyPOP! We’ll love to hear from you.
