Q.Digital – LGBTQ Nation‘s parent company – has partnered with Chevrolet to produce a series of investigative reports, interviews, and videos on topics ranging from drag as activism to criminal justice reform and sports inclusion.
The series, Authentic Voices of Pride, launched its first topic, “families,” on LGBTQ Nation with profiles of families raising thriving kids. New topics will launch every few weeks throughout the fall. For each topic, this site is producing a short documentary and deeply researched articles and profiles. Chevy has partnered with influencers to spark discussion about the topics as they are published.
The “families” topic includes video interviews with community luminaries such as Lance Bass and Family Equality CEO Stacey Stevenson.
“I’m thrilled that LGBTQ Nation continues to be the first place to turn for both public figures and brands that want to reach our community,” said Q.Digital CEO Scott Gatz. “I’m always proud of the quality content that our journalists produce, but they’ve managed to reach new heights on this project through their thoughtful, in-depth coverage of these vital topics.”
In sponsoring the series, Chevrolet is showing that Pride is something to celebrate throughout the year. Along with the journalism that brings “context and information LGBTQ people and their allies,” Chevrolet is donating $25,000 to five LGBTQ charities: Black Queer Town Hall, Athlete Ally, the Ruth Ellis Center, Family Equality, and Lambda Legal.
“At Chevrolet, we have a history of leading and supporting initiatives that promote inclusion and diversity,” said Vice President of Marketing at Chevrolet Steven Majoros. “With this latest LGBTQ+ focused partnership, we are building on that history and reinforcing Chevy’s commitment to driving substantive cultural progress.”
“Authentic Voices of Pride highlights the stories, struggles, and triumphs of LGBTQ+ individuals to continue to be a driver for societal change and progress.”
