What's the LGBTQ streaming service Revry all about?

You can't swing a feather boa without hitting a new streaming app these days, but where you are going to spend your precious cash these days is a really valid question. Most of the streaming apps are focused on general content, but you may or may not know that there is an app called Revry that is all LGBTQ+ content at your fingertips.

"Velvet Sky" on Revry

Revry bills itself as "Free Queer TV" and for the most part that is indeed the case. There are a number of free series, podcasts, and shows you can watch from free of charge, or upgrade to their Premium subscription for $6.99 a month, which unlocks feature-length films and more. There's also a live Revry feature, plus news and current events features, which is a nice added bonus. The channel/app has actually been around since 2016 but has gotten a big push as of late.

You can catch some great Original series like Barbelle and BIFL, and catch up on older favs like Queer as Folk and Lip Service. Full-length feature films and shorts are available and are more likely those you would run into on the festival circuit, which is a nice little treat because all too often those films fall into the ether after festival season. What really rounds Revry out however, and pushes into the category of "yasss, I'll subscribe" are its podcasts and music features like the queer horror cast Dead to Filth with Michael Varrati, and High Tea with Laganja Estranja and Gia Gunn. You'll discover new artists to love on Revry's music channel, which provides a diverse lineup of talent.

"Giving Me Life" on Revry

Revry's content leans ever so slightly towards gay men, but there's a lot for everyone in the LGBTQ+ community to enjoy. Another big bonus is that Revry founders, Damian Pelliccione, Alia J. Daniels, Christopher Rodriguez, and LaShawn McGhee, are dedicated to inclusive and diverse programming, something that is all too often lacking when it comes to LGBTQ+ content.

You can find Revry on loads of platforms including Roku, Android TV, Apple TV, Fire TV, IOS, and Samsung devices. $6.99 a month gives you access to all content, or go for the $59 annual plan. If you love finding new content and accessing more obscure films and series, then you'll want to give Revry a try. Sign up now and get a week free.
