Bros

Billy Eichner‘s gay rom-com doesn’t actually hit theaters until September, but when the trailer dropped this month, Gay Twitter was all over it. The film features an entirely LGBTQ principal cast. In a press release accompanying the trailer, Eichner said, “From the very beginning of developing Bros, I let everyone involved know that, while I wanted to make a movie that was hilarious and relatable to everyone, first and foremost I wanted to make a movie that felt authentic for the LGBTQ folks that the movie is about – and who have been so profoundly underserved by Hollywood over the years, particularly the major movie studios. From the storytelling to the casting to the crew, it was crucial for me that the needs of LGBTQ+ people were being prioritized.”

Bros is set to hit theaters September 30th.
