To further celebrate Pride, Netflix highlights the shows that showcase diversity and representation through a lineup of shows you can stream right now. And to push support for the LGBTQ community that's brimming with talent, they've partnered with five local drag stars including Brigiding Gigi, Dee Dee Holiday, Marina Summers, Min Ortiz, and Vinas DeLuxe, to transform into their favorite Netflix characters.






“Representation in the media is absolutely important for me as an LGBTQ+ person because it validates my existence in a positive way,” says Dee Dee Holliday. “LGBTQ+ people are not just sidekicks or objects of humor. We have backstories and amazing life experiences to tell, which deserve to be put out there for all the world to see. Representation helps in eliminating negative biases towards people like me.”


“As we all know, media is a very powerful tool in influencing the views of people,” says Marina Summers. “Seeing more LGBTQ+ individuals and their stories to viewers of all ages could widely spread a better understanding of our community.”
