SHOWTIME Networks Participates in Major Gay Pride Events Throughout The U.S.

NEW YORK, June 7 -- Showtime Networks, which has given consumers a place to watch quality lesbian and gay programming with the SHOWTIME original series THE L WORD and QUEER AS FOLK, will serve as a sponsor for numerous gay and lesbian festivals and events during the 2005 Pride season. Beginning now and running through November, Showtime Networks will participate in approximately 20 pride events and festivals across the nation, attended by over 4 million LGBT people.

Showtime Networks has secured at least two booths at sponsored Pride festivals. Each booth will promote the groundbreaking series QUEER AS FOLK as well as the return of THE L WORD for a third season. Ilene Chaiken, the executive producer and creator of the hit series THE L WORD, will serve as one of the Grand Marshals at the San Francisco Pride Parade (June 26). Additionally, LGBT lobbyist Arlene Isaacson, who is featured in the SHOWTIME documentary SAME SEX AMERICA, will speak at the New York Pride Rally (June 19). Other Pride events include Los Angeles (June 12), Dallas (June 11), Boston (June 11), Washington D.C. (June 12), Philadelphia (June 12), Cleveland (June 18), Atlanta (June 24), Columbus (June 25), Seattle (June 25-26), Chicago (June 26), Raleigh (October 3), and more. In many instances, Showtime Networks will partner with LOGO (MTV Networks' television network for gay and lesbian viewers) as well as local affiliates. A complete list of Pride events and dates can be found on the Showtime Networks website at sho.com/pride.

Showtime Networks will also sponsor various gay and lesbian film festivals. This includes NewFest, an international gay and lesbian film festival held in New York City from June 2-12, in which the company serves as a Presenting Sponsor and an exclusive sponsor of the Showtime Vanguard Award. Showtime Networks will also be involved in three Los Angeles OutFest events including the 2005 Queer Brunch at Sundance as a presenting sponsor, and a major sponsor of Outfest Wednesdays, a weekly screening event, and an exclusive sponsor of OutFest 2005.
