Jim Parsons to create a new documentary on historical moments for the LGBTQ+ community

The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons is teaming up with Greg Perlanti to create a new documentary series based on historical moments for the LGBTQ+ community.

The actor, who has been moving behind-the-scenes for more production roles over the past year, will bring to life landmark points in the history of gay, transgender and queer rights. Equal, a four-part series, will also chronicle forgotten heroes and faces of the movement, giving them overdue recognition for their fight for equal rights for the community. Each hour-long episode will feature never-before-seen footage, interviews, and re-enactments to bring to life the story of LGBTQ+ trailblazers that have made history with their work and efforts.

It will conclude with a special on the Stonewall Riots, ending with the first New York Pride event, one year after the events of that evening.

Jennifer O’Connell, executive VP of non-fiction at HBO Max, said, "In June, we commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, which shepherded in a new era for LGBTQ+ pride. While we know the story behind that fateful summer night, there’s a lot of fascinating, untold history of the patriots, artists, and thinkers who paved the way."

Parsons also produces the Netflix series Special, which tells the life of a gay man with cerebral palsy, and Young Sheldon, the prequel series of his character from The Big Bang Theory.
