We live in a different time people, there are two mainstream LGBT teen movies getting ready to hit theaters this year. One is based on the wildly popular YA book Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli called Love, Simon stars Nick Robinson (Melissa and Joey) and the gorgeous Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why) and focuses around a secretive online relationship with another gay kid in their high school. The other stars freaking Bette Midler and the boy from The End of the F***ing World called Freak Show. This one looks more like the classic underdog story, but explores both gender and sexuality.
We sure wish we had mainstream films like this when we were growing up.
