MUMBAI: DocuBay, the membership video-on-demand streaming service by IN10 Media Network, has acquired LGBTQ+-focused documentary features from OUTtv, the world’s first and Canada’s only LGBTQ+ television network. The films cover a wide range of issues affecting the LGBT community across the globe and are featured in DocuBay’s newest category called PrideBay, dedicated to films chronicling diverse and complex LGBTQ+ experiences. 

The licensed titles and new PrideBay category are now available for global streaming on DocuBay, along with the recently-launched CrimeBay, PoliticsBay, NatureBay, TravelBay, AdventureBay, ScienceBay, and many others. The DocuBay app can be downloaded in 180+ countries on the App Store, Google Play, Fire TV, Android TV, and Apple TV, among others.

Notable titles acquired by DocuBay include -19 and Homeless which captures two years in the lives of former foster kids as they age out of the system and are faced with overwhelming odds and tragic personal struggles; Why Go Through That? which shares the personal stories of six transgender individuals, each at a different stage of life and transition; Made With Pride which follows the emotional and inspiring journey of a gay couple who decide to build a family through surrogacy; and Safe Country follows the stories of three queer refugees in Vancouver with very different experiences of adapting to new lives in Canada.

DocuBay acquisition & content head Adita Jain stated: “We’re thrilled to partner with OUTtv, not only to share LGBTQ+ stories that address critical issues, but to highlight them in our new PrideBay. DocuBay is committed to being a platform that brings important social issues like those that affect the LGBTQ+ community and others to a wider, global audience, a mission that is made easier by the rapid increase in internet connectivity all around the world.”

OUTtv CEO Brad Danks stated: “At OUTtv we pride ourselves on being leading providers of queer content across the globe. Our partnership with DocuBay will allow us to continue to expand the availability of queer-focused programming and ensure that LGBTQ+ content is accessible to everyone, world-wide.”
