There’s only a few more days of Pride Month we here at MickeyBlog don’t want you to forget that “This is Me: Pride Celebration Spectacular” will premiere on the Disney+ YoutTube and Facebook pages on Sunday, June 27 at 8pm ET.
The concert will feature not-to-be-missed musical performances of songs from iconic movies and series available to stream on Disney+ reinterpreted through the LGTBQ+ lens.
The whole event will be hosted by Nina West “RuPaul’s Drag Race) with a performance line-up that includes:

- Nina West, Michael James Scott (“Aladdin” on Broadway),
- and Todrick Hall (Recording Artist).
This is Me is directed by Ann Marie Pace who most recently directed Disney’s Launchpad now streaming on Disney+. For those unfamiliar, the goal of Launchpad is to diversity the types of stories that are being told to and to give access to those who historically have not had it.
Joe Earley, global head of Marketing and Content Creation for DIsney had this to say, “At Disney+, we believe in the power of inclusive storytelling to bring us together and inspire us to live authentically,. ” Joe continues, “We are committed to amplifying the voices of our LGBTQ+ creators and talent, and platforming content that reminds people to love loud – and sing louder – in this special event.”
The production will be produced by Disney Music Group and the Disney PRIDE Employee Resource Group. .
The performers, directors and producers are are primarily comprised of members of the LGBTQ+ community.
The event will also raise awareness for GLSEN a non-profit supported by Disney that works to make sure that LGBTQ students are able to learn and grow in a school environment that is free from bullying.
