The Best NewFront Presentation is back with Programming Announcements with Carmen Carrera, Dashaun Wesley, Murray Hill and more

Revry, the pioneering entertainment media network championing queer culture, is thrilled to announce its 2nd annual IAB NewFront presentation. This exclusive event for brand marketers and media buyers is slated for May 1st at 12:10 – 12:20 PM ET on the IAB Main Stage in New York City. More than a presentation, this event promises an afternoon cabaret-themed spectacle, showcasing the indomitable spirit of the LGBTQ+ community. Revry returns to this year’s NewFronts as the only LGBTQ+-owned and targeted media company.

Hosted by Revry co-founder and CEO Damian Pelliccione, this event promises to be a kaleidoscope of singing and dancing, illuminating Revry’s mission to connect brands with the rich tapestry of queer culture. This dynamic presentation will feature appearances from Carmen Carrera (RuPaul’s Drag Race)–the iconic host of Revry’s GLAAD Award-winning series “Drag Latina”, DaShaun Wesley (Max’s Legendary)–the vogue maestro and co-host of Revry’s “Pride Ball”, and Murray Hill (Max’s Somebody Somewhere, Hulu’s Drag Me to Dinner), legendary drag king and actor.

“Revry’s presence at the 2024 IAB NewFronts is a vibrant celebration of queer culture and its impactful role in shaping the media landscape,” said Damian Pellicione, Co-founder and CEO of Revry. “Our cabaret-themed presentation will be immersive, highlighting how brands can connect with LGBTQ+ audiences. As a diverse-owned and targeting media company, we are proud to be the vanguards in this space.”
