The 19th Celebrates


Originally aired June 15, 2023

The 19th Celebrates Pride event focused on queer and trans resistance through love, advocacy, and community. One of The 19th’s LGBTQ+ reporters, Kate Sosin, interviewed actor Brian Michael Smith (9-1-1: Lone Star, The L Word: Generation Q). They discussed his fruitful career, the importance of representation in media and advice he has for young queer people. 

In a time when transgender people are faced with many hurdles, it’s important to also look toward the trailblazers who shed light and hope on the community’s future. Sosin and Smith remind us that there is still so much to celebrate.
