FX’s ‘Pride’ docuseries chronicles 6 decades of LGBTQ activism

Directed by seven renowned queer filmmakers, “Pride” is a six-episode limited series that shines a spotlight on some of the most celebrated LGBTQ milestones and trailblazers, along with lesser-known pivotal moments and activists going back to the 1950s.
“Pride” explores some of the most tragic parts of LGBTQ history — such as the early years of the AIDS crisis, which ravaged the gay community — along with some of the legal high points, like Massachusetts becoming the first state to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in 2004. It also introduces viewers to largely unknown activists such as Madeleine Tress, a Department of Commerce employee who lost her job for being a lesbian during the Lavender Scare of the 1950s.
All six episodes of “Pride” are currently streaming on Hulu.
