"Body Electric," one of the 60 new LGBT titles added to Amazon Prime.

Amazon Prime’s relationship with one of the largest LGBT film festivals provides more LGBT content for viewers.

The service added 60 new and old pieces of entertainment to its catalog, according to PinkNews. The films come from Outfest’s library of work and come from the Prime Video Direct deal, a service that allows Amazon to get bundles of films from various film festivals it partners with.

“These are challenging times for many and reports of violence against LGBTQ citizens are on the rise,” Executive Director of Outfest Christopher Racster said to entertainment publication Variety. “I still believe, though, in the power of our stories to change that narrative… It is a relationship like this with Prime Video Direct that will carry our stories across the widest network and reach the most individuals.”

According to the Advocate, six more Outfest films will premiere on the service in the next few weeks.

Outfest was started by UCLA students in 1982, according to the organization's website. The non-profit has preserved over 20,000 films while also working to showcase LGBT films.

This year’s festival in Los Angeles is scheduled for July 12-22.
