Join Dr. Kryss and Paramount's Jay Randall as they discuss Pride from the '90s to the present to the future. In this podcast, everything from Jay’s mug to his earring holds meaning! The conversation starts with a blast from the past as they reminisce about their shared memories of Danny from Real World: New Orleans. Why was he so impactful to each of them? Next, the duo moves into the impact of "if you can see it, you can be it" when it comes to the decisions behind making advertising more inclusive. Can it be done without alienating more conservative audiences? Plus, Jay shares why he isn't so against rainbow-washing, as controversial as it is. Does Dr. Kryss agree?

Learn, too, what Paramount is up to not just in June but all year when it comes to supporting LGBT+ employees and viewers. Finally, Jay gives us his closing thoughts on the importance of on-going visibility in Paramount content, in stores and in our lives. You also won’t want to miss the unexpected -- and truly outrageous -- way Jay closes out this episode of our LGBT+ Advancing podcast. It’s the first time this has ever happened and Dr. Kryss is absolutely here for it. You should be, too!
