    My guest is PBS Exec Adam Dylewski, who talks about their Short Docs series with plenty of good Pride Month Content #HeliumRadio

My guest is Adam Dylewski, Director of Programming, PBS Digital Studios and he talks about their big summer of “PBS Short Docs,” a curated collection of short documentaries to showcase the work of independent and diverse filmmakers on PBS Voices, a documentary-focused YouTube channel.

They kick off Pride Month with several outstanding docs including one that I recommend called “Prom of Their Dreams.” It is a sweet story about
a generation of LGBTQ community that grew up in the decades before the Stonewall Riots, prom was emblematic of the exclusion and fear of living in a world they could not experience as their authentic selves.

At Triangle Square, a haven for LGBTQ retirees in Hollywood, California, the idea of a “senior” prom has taken on an entirely new meaning. Tapping into their teenage selves, these liberated seniors ready themselves for the hottest event on the Triangle Square social calendar, reflecting back on who they were and how far they’ve come makes their prom night all the sweeter.

“The PBS Short Docs collection is designed to elevate independent films from their production partners and stations and help audiences discover PBS content they otherwise they may not have found on their own,” said Brandon Arolfo, Head of PBS Digital Studios.

“This new addition aligned perfectly with PBS Voices because it’s our organization’s documentary hub on YouTube and each program reflects the interests and issues Americans face today, especially younger and diverse viewers.”
