As part of its Pride Month curations, HBO Max is partnering with DC to host a Super Hero Pride tray, consisting of titles from the DC Multiverse that feature characters in the LGBTQ+ community such as “Naomi,” “Batwoman,” “Harley Quinn,” “Young Justice,” “Constantine: City of Demons,” “Doom Patrol” and “Peacemaker.”
 
Throughout the month of June, HBO Max’s “Human by Orientation” will also partner with queer collectives across the markets (Los Angeles, Miami, and New York City) to bring the community back together to celebrate Pride in person, according to HBO Max. Starting on June 4 in Los Angeles, “Human by Orientation” kicks off a month of Pride collaborations by partnering with “The Party by Ostbahnhof” on “SCENE.” This event will feature a lineup of queer DJs and incorporate photo moments from iconic HBO Max series. On June 19, “Human by Orientation” will team-up with Black, queer collective, Masisi, for its Pride and Juneteenth celebration in Miami. Programming will feature wellness workshops and skincare services by Black practitioners, followed by a panel discussion titled “Art and Dance Floors as a Platform for Healing,” and finally a night of music and performances by Black, queer creatives.
 
Finally, kicking off New York City Pride weekend on June 24, “Human by Orientation” will partner with Brooklyn-based collectives Club Carry, xCakes and DickAppointment to host their celebration “GARDEN.” The event will start with community-centered discussions around queer nightlife and lead into a party with sets by notable queer DJs.
