Hosts Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley announced, on June 22, two very special episodes of "Stars in the House" that will celebrate and honor Pride Month and the LGBTQ community.
On June 22, the cast of the groundbreaking series Queer As Folk will reunite to talk about the iconic show and what it meant to be a part of the first American drama series with gay characters as leads. The hosts will be joined by Michelle Clunie, Robert Gant, Sharon Gless, Randy Harrison, Scott Lowell, Peter Paige and Hal Sparks at 8 p.m. ET to reminisce and raise money for The Actors Fund.
Also, on June 23, "Stars in the House" will mark the five-year anniversary of "Broadway For Orlando" and the release of the special cover of "What The World Needs Now Is Love," which raised more than $100,000 for The Center Orlando in 2016. The Center Orlando Executive Director George A. Wallace will appear alongside Wayne Brady, Keala Settle, Liz Callaway, Ann Hampton Callaway, Rosie O'Donnell and Orfeh.
Past episodes have featured reunions of shows such as Fame, ER, Little House on the Prairie, Melrose Place, Frasier and Desperate Housewives as well as Broadway productions like Les Miserables, Godspell, The Prom, Mamma Mia, Rent, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and many others.
All episodes will livestream at 8 p.m. ET on the Stars in the House YouTube channel as well as StarsInTheHouse.com, and fans will be able to ask questions live, and make donations.
