Clear your calendars for February 14!
No, not for Valentine’s Day—that’s when Visible: Out on Television drops on Apple TV+.
As NewNowNext previously reported, the five-part LGBTQ docuseries, executive-produced by out Hollywood veterans Wanda Sykes and Wilson Cruz, “will explore themes such as invisibility, homophobia, the evolution of the LGBTQ character, and coming out in the television industry.”
Narrated by Janet Mock, Margaret Cho, Asia Kate Dillon, Neil Patrick Harris, and Lena Waithe, Visible will feature new interviews with Ellen DeGeneres, Anderson Cooper, Billy Porter, Rachel Maddow, Don Lemon, Sara Ramirez, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and more.
We got a sneak peek of the series in a brief teaser aired during the Golden Globes, but now Apple has released an extended trailer that spotlights the groundbreaking history of queer people on television.
The new trailer features more interviews of out celebs, clips of queer television characters… and Oprah Winfrey?! That’s right—the iconic media mogul makes a surprise appearance, blessing us with a quote about the importance of LGBTQ visibility on the small screen:
“When you see images that are reflective of your own life it is a reminder to you that your own life matters.” Chills.
Watch the new Visible trailer below.
