The pop-up channel returns for its seventh year to champion inclusion, diversity and all things LGBTQ+
By Virgin TV Edit
MTV Classic (CH 316) becomes MTV Pride from Monday 6 to Sunday 12 September, with some of your favourite icons who will get you pumped up and in the mood to dance, sing and shout about this monumental occasion. And the channel is also available for all TiVo® and V6 customers on CH 100 for the duration!
Hosted by Munroe Bergdorf and featuring Olly Alexander, RuPaul and many more, get ready for feel-good music from ABBA and Ariana Grande to Lady Gaga and Lil Nas X.
Last year marked 50 years since the first-ever Pride march, a revolutionary parade that helped spark the fight for gay rights worldwide. While many Pride events are still unable to go ahead this year, we can still celebrate. In fact, it’s never been more important for us to champion inclusivity and togetherness and to show the whole world the big love we share for each other as unique individuals.
Here’s just a few of the shows spreading positivity that you’ll be able to enjoy to get you in the Pride spirit.
