LGBTQ Actors Playing LGBTQ Characters

Straight actors have a long history of being recognized by the Academy Awards for playing gay characters, but the list of openly LGBTQ actors who have had such recognition is much shorter. In 2024, however, Colman Domingo and Jodie Foster have joined that exclusive club.


Domingo received a nomination for best actor in a leading role for playing the title character in “Rustin,” Netflix’s biopic about the gay Black civil rights leader Bayard Rustin, an adviser to Martin Luther King Jr. and the architect of the 1963 March on Washington. According to The New York Times, Domingo is only the second openly gay man to earn an Oscar nomination for playing a gay character, following the 1999 nomination of Ian McKellen for his leading role in “Gods and Monsters.”


Foster was nominated for her supporting role in “Nyad,” yet another Netflix biopic. Foster plays out lesbian Bonnie Stoll, the real-life friend and coach of the title character, long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad. If Foster wins in 2024, she will become part of a very exclusive club of actors who have three Oscars. Currently, this list has only six people on it: Meryl Streep, Jack Nicholson, Ingrid Bergman, Daniel Day-Lewis, Frances McDormand and Walter Brennan.

LGBTQ Icons in Film

NYAD - Endurance swimmer Diana Nyad arrived in Key West, Fla., to cheers and rainbow flags on September 2, 2013, having finally fulfilled her dream of swimming from Cuba to Florida at age 64 and after three incomplete attempts. Throughout the 110-mile feat, Nyad's friend and coach, Bonnie Stoll, was at her side, cheering her on, guiding her, staving off jellyfish, and monitoring her nutrition. The new Netflix film stars Annette Bening as Nyad and queer icon and double Oscar winner Jodie Foster as Stoll. The film opens with Nyad — despite her successful career in sports journalism — determined to complete the swim she first attempted in 1978 but was forced to quit after 42 hours due to massive waves. At the time of her decision to get back in the water, Nyad had completed major swims like circling the island of Manhattan in seven hours and 59 minutes and completing what was then the longest swim in history in 1979 — 102.5 miles from the Bahamas to Florida.

Bradley Cooper Plays Bisexual Legend Leonard Bernstein in Maestro

Wham! New Documentary Shows Temporal Nature of Youth


MAESTRO - Bradley Cooper plays bisexual legend Leonard Bernstein. The new film "Maestro" is a towering and fearless love story chronicling the lifelong relationship between Leonard Bernstein and Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein. Bernstein is one of the most legendary conductors and composers of all time, and is considered to be the first American conductor to receive worldwide acclaim. In his career, he won seven Emmys, two Tonys, and 16 Grammy Awards. He’s known for works including the musical West Side Story, several symphonies, and original scores for several films.  And while the film focuses on the love story between Bernstein and Montealegre, it doesn’t shy away from showing the musical legend’s bisexuality. Throughout his life, Bernstein had relationships with both women and men, and his wife knew about his sexuality.

 

RUSTIN - Bayard Rustin, advisor to Martin Luther King Jr., dedicates his life to the quest for racial equality, human rights and worldwide democracy. Despite incredible odds, he managed to organize the March on Washington in 1963. However, as an openly gay Black man, he is all but erased from the civil rights movement he helped build. The film, based on the true story of Rustin, stars Colman Domingo in the title role. It is directed by George C. Wolfe. Written by Dustin Lance Black. Lenny Kravitz wrote and performed an original song, "Road to Freedom," for the film.

IT'S ONLY LIFE AFTERALL - Documentary by the Indigo Girls about the Indigo Girls. It is an intimate look into the lives of one of America's most iconic folk-rock bands, the Indigo Girls. Never-before-seen archival footage and intimate real-life conversation dives into the songwriting and storytelling of the music that transformed a generation. Known for stirring harmonies and socially conscious lyrics, iconic folk rock duo of Emily Saliers and Amy Ray are the subject of this intimate and insightful documentary, which tracks their decades-long career.
 

WHAM! - The musical duo Wham! dominated radio and television in the 1980s with feel-good, fun-loving pop hits. Now, a new Netflix documentary titled "Wham!" looks at how George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley formed a teenage friendship and went on to create one of the most distinct sounds of the post-disco era. The film by director Chris Smith is a personal take that often relies on footage and audio the two recorded themselves. Ridgeley's mother kept scrapbooks of their rise, as well, starting with when they became inseparable in high school. "The whole movie was about this temporal nature of youth. It's something that is so beautiful, but it can't be sustained," said Chris Smith. The documentary interweaves existing footage and audio of Michael (who died in 2016) with current interviews of Ridgeley.

Colman Domingo: No Ordinary Movie Star

 

An ordinary guy who is having a big year...

Colman Domingo is having a big year. From receiving buzz around his commanding performance in Netflix’s new Bayard Rustin biopic that sees the actor portraying the seldom championed queer civil rights icon, to a standout turn in the much-buzzed about musical film adaptation of “The Color Purple,” Domingo is out in front for everyone to see. The Emmy award-winning and Tony nominated actor is finally receiving his long overdue moment, but the out performer has always made himself known.

Colman Domingo thinks he’s just a regular guy. Never mind the Emmy he won in for a deeply compassionate role opposite Zendaya in Max’s Euphoria, or the Tony nomination he received in for his supporting performance in the historical musical The Scottsboro Boys. “On an ordinary day, I think I’m pretty ordinary,” he proclaims.

Colman Domingo Shares Romantic Story of How He Met His Husband


He is currently in the midst of the promotional tour and award season campaigns for two films in which he stars: Netflix’s Rustin, about an unsung Black gay civil rights hero, and the movie musical adaptation of Alice Walker’s The Color Purple — there is nothing regular about him.

The range of Domingo’s latest roles is evidence of such an unfolding. In the George C. Wolfe-directed Rustin, he plays Bayard Rustin, the pioneering organizer behind the historic 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom at which Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. famously declared, “I have a dream.” Detailing the immense barriers the West Chester, Pennsylvania-born activist overcame to make history — particularly as an openly gay Black man at a time when being queer was especially criminalized — the movie rescues Rustin’s importance and impact from the sidelines and footnotes. Domingo’s performance is a commanding character study — and career-defining. Though his over 30-year career in entertainment has been peppered with standout supporting roles in film and television — from the series Fear The Walking Dead and Lucifer to movies like Barry Jenkins’s If Beale Street Could Talk, Janicza Bravo’s Zola, and Wolfe’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom — Rustin is his first time as lead.

In The Color Purple, Domingo plays Mister, a very different kind of character, as he is the canonical narrative’s main antagonist. The abusive husband of Celie (played by season 3 American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino), he’s the embodiment of toxic masculinity and generational trauma. And while the role was made famous by Danny Glover in the 1985 Steven Spielberg-directed The Color Purple (Whoopi Goldberg played Celie in that version), Domingo puts his own notable spin on the complex character. Together, Rustin and The Color Purple made Domingo worthy of a rare double nomination for leading and supporting roles during this single awards season.

And Domingo just received a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his Rustin performance.

Will Ferrell Makes Movie About His Transgender Friend

 

Will and Harper...  Film Well Received at Sundance Festival...

 

Unlike Cannes and Venice, Sundance isn’t a film festival that inspires too many standing ovations. But moviegoers at the Eccles Theatre were moved (more than once!) to stand up and applaud after the premiere of “Will & Harper,” a funny, heartbreaking and poignant documentary about Will Ferrell taking a road trip with his longtime friend, Harper Steele, who transitioned at 61.

“Look at this! And this is for a documentary,” Ferrell said as he greeted the packed house in Park City on Monday night. “Wow! If we were going to be at Sundance, we thought it would be at a 10 AM screening in someone’s garage.”

“Will & Harper” chronicles the duo over 17 days as they drive from New York to California, making pit stops at basketball games, dive bars, “swanky” Las Vegas restaurants and other places where Steele hopes to feel more comfortable since she came out as a trans woman in 2022.

Along the way, they are greeted by many “Saturday Night Live” veterans, including Tina Fey, Kristen Wiig, and Molly Shannon, which is fitting because Ferrell and Steele met while working on “SNL” — as a performer and writer, respectively — in the ’90s. (“They were important to my transition; they’re my family,” Steele said of her “SNL” friends.)

“The love these two friends have for one another fills me up,” a misty-eyed director Josh Greenbaum said during a post-screening Q&A. “I’m so grateful for this moment. I’m going to get it together and –”

Although Greenbaum is known for kooky comedies like “Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar” and “Strays,” Steele said the director felt like the right fit to handle this documentary with love, care and sensitivity. “Will & Harper” captures serious and emotional conversations about being transgender, but there’s plenty of levity from comical moments involving Pringles, wacky costumes and a fateful trip to Dunkin’ Donuts.  “We are comedy writers, so we came up with a lot of bad ideas at first. We planned setups, and it felt weird and prank-y and inauthentic,” Steele said. “We said, ‘Let’s get in the car and see what happens.'”

Ferrell, who has endeared himself to America through comedies like “Elf,” “Step Brothers” and “Anchorman,” wanted to share a more personal side in the documentary. He broke down in tears more than once during conversations with Steele throughout the film.  “I felt like if we were going to be a part of this and create it with integrity, I owed it to Harper to be as open and emotionally available to what was going to happen,” Ferrell said.

Steele said she was inspired to make the documentary at a time when LGBTQ rights in the US have been under attack.  “I had this friend — this is my privilege — who has made movies that appeal very broadly. That was the deciding factor … I could abuse this relationship for the good,” she joked. “I still don’t think Will knows what he did.”

Ferrell spoke to Variety prior to the film’s premiere and admitted that he had “zero knowledge” about the trans community before Steele came out.  “I had met trans people, but I didn’t have anyone personally in my life,” Ferrell said. “So this was all new territory for me. It’s a chance for us in the cis community to ask questions, listen and be there as a friend to discuss this journey.”

True Queer Intimacy on Screen

It all starts with a royal wedding and catastrophic cake smash. What ensues is an enemies-to-lovers romance between Alex Claremont-Diaz, the son of the US president, and a British royal, Prince Henry. That's the plot of the new Amazon Studios movie, Red, White & Royal Blue, that's now streaming on Prime Video. It is a screen adaptation of Casey McQuiston's bestselling novel of the same name, published in 2019. It's also the directorial debut of Matthew López, the first Latine to win a Tony award for best play, for his play The Inheritance.  The film stars Taylor Zakhar Perez (Alex) and Nicholas Galitzine (Henry) in the main roles.  And Uma Thurman plays the President of the United States.

López said that he was captivated by the main characters after reading the novel. "For me, especially Alex, you know, I'm a queer Latine, biracial son of the South, and so is he," López said. "I had never encountered a book before that had a character like him at the center, and it really just made all of my imagination, you know, light up."  López also spoke about the challenge of adapting a popular book to the screen; how his own life influenced his approach to the story; and the importance of showing queer intimacy on the screen.

Red, White & Royal Blue: Director Centers True Queer Intimacy on Screen

Inside Red, White and Royal Blue's Royal Love Story


Juana Summers (NPR Interviewer): I am a huge fan of romance books, and oftentimes when I read them, I feel like I'm kind of scripting my own movie in my head. I'm envisioning what the leading characters look like, the way their voices sound, the soundtrack that plays as they're interacting, and I know I'm not the only person who reads these books that way.

And that, I think, is one of the things that can make tackling a movie adaptation really tricky. Like, can the movie that a director and a cast are building ever live up to this incredible thing that I've created in my head? How did you approach that with a book like this one that's the source material, that has just been so beloved by so many fans?

Matthew López: I think you really identified it with your question, because every reader of a novel is a film director while they're reading the book. They have control over everything: costume, design, casting. As you're reading a book, it's your little movie in your head. And with a book as popular as this one, you've got millions and millions of people with their own version of it in their head. And then there's one person who makes the movie, right?

The high wire act that I was engaged in is, "How do I take a very popular bit of literature and make a movie of it?" And the answer I really came to was, I have to make the movie that is inside my head. I have to make the movie that is personal to me. I have to make the movie that I'm capable of making — my response to the book, in many ways.

Inside Red, White and Royal Blue's Royal Love Story


Summers: You've talked a good deal about how much you immediately were drawn to and related to Alex's character, but do you see shades of yourself or were there parts of your own story that inspired the way that you think about Henry?

López: You know, growing up in the 1980s and early 1990s, my experience was a lot more like Henry's than it was Alex's. Alex's story is kind of only possible right now, and it's not something that I had in my life growing up. I knew what it was like to pretend I was something I'm not. I knew what it was like to believe that if I wasn't this thing in the world, that I believe that I'm supposed to be, I would be letting down my family; that I would be out of step with the nation. So even though Alex demographically and sort of personally checks a lot of boxes for me, in my experience, the pain of being a young queer kid in the 1980s and '90s is really reflected very strongly for me in Henry's story. It is what allowed me to access Henry. I think in some ways, Henry represents my past, and Alex represents my present and my future.

Summers: I can't have this conversation with you without talking about the intimacy of this film and the way that it depicts intimate moments in sex. I mean, there's one scene that I'm thinking about in particular. It's when Henry and Alex are in Paris, and it feels personal and sensual and not at all contrived, and I don't know if in any other romantic comedy that I've watched, that I've seen a sex scene between two men portrayed in that way. I'd just love to talk with you a bit about how you approached as a director depicting their physical relationship.

Red, White & Royal Blue: Director Centers True Queer Intimacy on Screen

Inside Red, White and Royal Blue's Royal Love Story


López: That scene in Paris was something that we discussed from the very beginning of the process. It was the scene that I told the studio and the producers that if they hired me, they were gonna get, and that if they didn't want that scene to be in the movie, they should find another filmmaker. It was a big bluff, but it worked! I had never seen in mainstream studio finance movies, a scene between two men, of love and communion, that reflected the way I as a gay man have sex. I wanted to show a scene of two characters genuinely making love and having a night that is life changing. But I also wanted to show a scene that quite simply made logical physical sense to anyone watching the scene who has had this kind of sex before.

I do think that the difference between a romantic comedy and a love story is sort of that scene, and when we talked about where that scene falls in the film, I was telling the studio and the producers that that's the moment the romantic comedy ends and the love story begins, and it's almost through the looking glass.

And as a result of that scene, we are now in a different storytelling mode and we are in love story mode and that energy carries us. There are still tons of laughs, hopefully, through the movie, but we understand and we care about the characters in a very different way after that scene.

Summers: One of the things that I really loved when I watched this movie is the fact that even though there were parts of it that were hard and complicated, it was incredibly hopeful and optimistic at a time where for some of us it can be challenging to find that joy. What do you hope that people take away from this movie when they see it?

López: I hope people remember what it feels like to believe in their ability to change the world through the simple act of being themselves. There is a power to fairytales, which is why fairytales are one of the earliest forms of storytelling, because they are our fondest hopes and wishes set within a framework that we can understand that the world is perfected in fairytales, because that's possible, because we cannot often perfect the world on our own.

But they are reflections of our hopes and they are reflections of our desires. And so we now live in an age where we know that our hopes and desires are something that we can achieve. But we always have to keep telling ourselves stories in order to remember what our hopes and our desires are. So yeah, I hope people watch this movie and are thoroughly entertained. If people watch this movie and just say, "That was so much fun," that's enough for me. But if people also watch this movie and say, "That made me remember why I love politics; that movie made me remember why I used to volunteer for campaigns; that movie made me remember that I actually have some agency in the world;" well, that's a good thing too.

The film, which was nominated for 11 Oscars, scored seven wins, including Best Picture and two historic wins for Michelle Yeoh and Key Huy Quan for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor.

Alongside Yeoh and Quan, directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert won for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay, and Jamie Lee Curtis won for Best Supporting Actress. In Kwan and Scheinert’s acceptance speech for Best Director, Scheinert thanked his parents. “Thank you for not squashing my creativity when I was making really disturbing horror films, or really perverted comedy films,” he said, “or dressing in drag as a kid, which is a threat to nobody.” Scheinert’s comment was a clear shot at anti-LGBTQ laws like the one recently enacted in Tennessee that aim to restrict or ban drag performances.

 


Following her win for Best Supporting Actress, Curtis was asked how she felt to be nominated alongside the other women nominated this year. “Surreal and proud,” she said. “And, obviously, I would like to see a lot more women be nominated so that there’s gender parity in all the areas and all the branches. And I think we’re getting there. We’re not anywhere near there.”

 

Best Picture - Everything Everywhere All at Once
Best Director - Daniel Scheinert & Daniel Kwan / Everything Everywhere All at Once
Original Screenplay - Daniel Scheinert & Daniel Kwan / Everything Everywhere All at Once
Best Actor - Brendan Fraser / The Whale
Best Actress - Michelle Yeoh / Everything Everywhere All at Once

Best Supporting Actor - Ke Huy Quan / Everything Everywhere All at Once
Best Supporting Actress - Jamie Lee Curtis / Everything Everywhere All at Once


Curtis went on to address the idea of non-gendered acting categories at the Oscars. “Of course, inclusivity then involves the bigger question which is, how do you include everyone when there are binary choices? Which is very difficult,” she said. “As the mother of a trans daughter, I completely understand that. And yet to de-gender the categories also, I’m concerned will diminish the opportunities for more women, which is something I also have been working hard to try to promote. So, it’s a complicated question. But I think the most important thing is inclusivity and more women.”

Elsewhere in the show, Brendan Fraser won Best Actor for his lead role in the controversial film The Whale. While Fraser’s performance has been praised by critics, the film has been widely criticized for its portrayal of his character, an obese gay man dealing with grief and depression, as well as the decision to have Fraser wear prosthetics and a fat suit rather than hiring an actual fat actor for the role. It was also noted that Fraser is also the sixth straight man to win an Oscar for portraying a gay character. While Ariana DeBose, Angelina Jolie, and Linda Hunt were all out when they won for Best Supporting Actress, to date no actor who was out at the time has won an Academy Award.

Rebel Wilson Announces Engagement to Girlfriend Ramona Agruma

Cue the wedding bells! Rebel Wilson and her girlfriend Ramona Agruma are engaged. The Pitch Perfect star expressed her excitement over popping the question at Disneyland in front of Sleeping Beauty’s castle: "We said yes!"

Wilson and Agruma first went public with their relationship back in June 2022. “I thought I was searching for a Disney Prince… but maybe what I really needed all this time was a Disney Princess,” Wilson said.  But two days after her landmark post, it was revealed that Wilson was forced to come out after a columnist for The Sydney Morning Herald planned to run a story about her relationship.

 



“There are levels to telling people. You tell your close family and your friends and not everybody. Across our two families, not everybody is as accepting as what you’d hope for, and we were trying to be respectful to those people and tell them in our way.”

While the pair’s public debut featured a massive bump in the road, Wilson and Arguma have continued to fall deeper in love while also taking huge steps in their relationship. Five months after announcing their partnership, Wilson announced the birth of her first child Royce Lillian, who was born via surrogate. “I can’t even describe the love I have for her, she’s a beautiful miracle!” Wilson wrote in a post.

We are looking forward to seeing Wilson and Arguma walk down the aisle.

New Scooby-Doo Movie Finally Depicts Velma as a Lesbian


The creators of a new “Scooby-Doo” movie have finally depicted Velma as a lesbian on screen, after years of speculation about the beloved character’s sexuality but no definitive portrayals of her as queer in the popular cartoon franchise.

Velma crushes on another female character, a costume designer named Coco Diablo, in a Halloween special, “Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo,” that was released online Tuesday and will debut on Cartoon Network on Oct. 14. She’s voiced by actor and comedian Kate Micucci.

In one scene, Velma’s glasses fog up and her cheeks redden as she fawns over Coco. “Jinkies,” Velma says — her classic tag line. She flirts with Coco throughout the movie, clearly smitten.

As if that wasn't enough to consider the case of Velma's sexuality closed, there is another scene where Velma admits to Daphne that she is "crushing big time" on Coco, causing Velma to ask for advice on what to do with her newfound feelings.

The "Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo!" animated Halloween movie airs Oct 2022.

Ariana DeBose Becomes First Openly Queer Woman of Color to Win Acting Oscar
 

Ariana DeBose has won the Oscar for best supporting actress at the 94th Academy Awards. She makes history as first queer woman of color to win an Oscar.  it is the same award Rita Moreno won, her predecessor in the same role in West Side Story in 1962.

DeBose beat out fellow nominees Jessie Buckley (“The Lost Daughter”), Judi Dench (“Belfast”), Kirsten Dunst (“The Power of the Dog”) and Aunjanue Ellis (“King Richard”) to take home the supporting actress trophy Sunday night at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

DeBose won the prize for her role in the Steven Spielberg-directed West Side Story remake, in which she plays the key role of Anita, the girlfriend of Sharks gang leader Bernardo, and sings the famous number America. It makes DeBose only the second Latina actor to win an Oscar, after Moreno, and the first queer woman of color.

To a standing ovation, DeBose celebrated Moreno as a trailblazer: “I’m so grateful – your Anita paved the way for tons of Anitas like me, and I love you,” she said, gesturing to Moreno. “Now you see why Anita says ‘I want to be in America’, because even in this weary world that we live in, dreams do come true, and that’s a really heartening thing right now,” DeBose said.

DeBose has already won a string of awards for her role in the film, including best supporting actress at the Baftas, Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild awards.

 



At the end of her speech, the 31-year-old actor harkened to her early days as an aspiring performer. “Imagine this little girl in the back seat of a white Ford Focus, look into her eyes,” she said. “You see an openly queer woman of color, an Afro-Latina, who found her strength in life through art. And that is, I think, what we’re here to celebrate.” To anyone who “has ever questioned your identity” or “lived in the grey spaces”, she added, “there is, indeed, a place for us”.

America Chavez, Lesbian Superhero, Debuts in Marvel's Doctor Strange

The dimension-hopping, super strong teenaged Latina with the ability to fly will be played by Xochitl Gomez.  The Babysitter’s Club star Xochitl Gomez has been confirmed by Disney and Marvel to be playing lesbian teen superhero America Chavez in the upcoming film Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness.

The film, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Rachel McAdams, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, will be directed by Sam Raimi, and will have direct ties to the series WandaVision, as well as the next Spider-Man film. It will be released March 2022. America Chavez is a dimension-hopping, super strong teenaged Latina superhero who has the ability to fly and is known in the comics for her amazing style, quick tongue, and way with the ladies. She is also sometimes referred to as Miss America.

Chavez rose to popularity as a part of the Young Avengers team of teen superheroes, before later starring in her own comic series by Gabby Rivera. She’s long been a fan favorite, especially among queer people and Latinx fans.

Beanie Feldstein called Bonnie Chance Roberts the "love of my life" in a birthday tribute
 

The Booksmart actress, who who just turned 29, announced that she is engaged to girlfriend Bonnie Chance Roberts, 31. Feldstein shared photos from the proposal on Instagram, showing Roberts down on one knee presenting the ring then celebrating the milestone with friends and family. Pals like Ben Platt and Kaitlyn Dever were in attendance, as well as her brother Jonah Hill, among others. Beanie Feldstein said yes!  In her Instagram Story she wrote, "You make me happier than I knew was possible. I love you."

The actress recently portrayed Monica Lewinsky on Impeachment: American Crime Story, and she currently headlines as Fannie Brice in the Broadway musical Funny Girl.

 


Feldstein opened up about Roberts while promoting her 2019 film Booksmart, which features a love story between costar Dever's character Amy and a cool-girl classmate Hope (Diana Silvers). Feldstein said the "best" part of the love story is that the movie doesn't make a big deal about Amy being gay. "It's not just about representation, it's about how you are representing, and the form that representation is taking," Feldstein said at the time. "And I think Booksmart really asks the question of what happens after teenagers come out? Let's tell that story."

"The only love scene in the film is a queer love scene, and that's so radical. By doing that, you're asking that to be the norm. By showing queer sexuality and making heterosexual people relate to it is actually really deeply meaningful," she said.

Bros: Billy Eichner's New Gay Rom-Com

 

Billy Eichner's Gay Rom-Com To Make History With All-LGBTQ Cast Playing Every Major Role! The cast, which includes “Drag Race” star Symone and "Scandal" alum Guillermo Díaz, will play the principal queer and heterosexual roles in the film.

Call it a rom-com revolution: Billy Eichner will not only be the first out gay man to write and star in a romantic comedy from a major studio when his movie “Bros” hits theaters in 2022, but now he’s bringing a few friends with him. The film is making history yet again, with Universal Pictures announcing that its principal cast will only feature LGBTQ actors, who will play both the principal queer and heterosexual roles in the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Judd Apatow-produced pic, which “centers on two gay men with commitment issues who attempt a relationship,” according to the film’s logline, now also stars “RuPaul’s Drag Race” winner Symone, “Scandal” alum Guillermo Diaz, comedian Guy Branum and TS Madison, who recently appeared in this summer’s “Zola.”  “Brothers and Sisters” actor Luke Macfarlane was previously announced as the other half of the film’s central couple.

“I could not be more proud or excited about the historic nature of the all openly LGBTQ cast of ‘Bros,’” Eichner said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “After queer actors have spent decades watching straight actors capitalize both artistically and professionally by playing LGBTQ characters, it is a long overdue dream come true to be able to assemble this remarkable, hilarious cast.”

“And while ‘Bros’ may be the first of its kind in several ways, my real hope is that it is only the first of many opportunities for openly LGBTQ ensembles to shine and show the world all we are capable of as actors, beyond just being the wacky sidekick, token queer or a straight movie star’s ‘gay best friend.’ And beyond all of that, this cast is fucking hysterical and you’re going to love them.”

Nicholas Stoller, who previously wrote the script for “The Muppets” and helmed comedies of a similar flair, including “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” is directing the film, which he co-wrote with Eichner.

When the project was first announced, Eichner, who rose to fame for his acerbic pop culture game show “Billy On the Street,” pointedly noted the historic nature of the project.

“In shocking news, "Bros" will be the first rom com about gay men ever produced by a major studio and, apparently, I’m the first openly gay man to ever write and star in their own studio film,” he captioned the post on Instagram back in March 2021. “Only took 100 years! Thanks Hollywood!”

On Twitter, he later added, “I honestly can’t believe it! Move over Julia Roberts, there’s a new rom-com queen in town!”

Eichner can currently be seen portraying Matt Drudge on FX’s “Impeachment: American Crime Story” and is also set to star in an upcoming biopic about the groundbreaking TV icon Paul Lynde. “Bros” is scheduled to arrive in theaters in Aug 2022.

The Gay Superhero in ‘Eternals’ Is What Audiences Have Been Waiting For

 

LGBTQ comic book and superhero fans have long been waiting to see themselves reflected in the pages and stories of the heroes they love. While progress has been made in the books themselves, that content has often been minimized or entirely erased when it comes to adapting those stories for the big screen. Now, in 2021, all that is finally beginning to change. Most notably, this week’s release of “Eternals,” which features the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first ever LGBTQ superhero, is a powerful step forward for the genre, one that will hopefully pave a new path for LGBTQ inclusion on the big screen.

Queer heroes in the pages of comics have made plenty of headlines this year alone. Recognizable and iconic heroes including those who take up the mantle of Superman, Green Lantern, Robin, and a new Captain America all had comic stories exploring their characters’ queerness. All of these moments garnered major media attention and fan excitement from readers, highlighting that these stories are not only highly anticipated, but that they are also being embraced and celebrated by audiences everywhere.

In recent years, television has also begun to introduce meaningful LGBTQ heroes. Most have appeared in the Berlanti universe of series, with highlights including the introduction of Dreamer, television’s first transgender hero, on The CW’s “Supergirl,” as well as a Black lesbian hero leading “Batwoman.” In its second season, HBO Max’s “Harley Quinn” centered its plot on the romantic relationship of Harley and Poison Ivy, while the titular character in Disney Plus’ “Loki,” released this year, came out as bisexual.

Despite all this progress, the LGBTQ inclusion seen on the page and on the small screen is still severely lacking when a character makes the jump to the big screen (and the big budget). DC’s “Birds of Prey” (the only major studio theatrical release in 2020 to include a bisexual character) included the long-awaited film confirmation that Harley Quinn is bisexual, a moment so quick that many audiences could have missed it. The “Wonder Woman” films continue to portray Diana as straight (despite her bisexuality in the comics) and there were scenes cut from “Thor: Ragnarok” and “Black Panther” which would have confirmed the identity of queer characters. “Deadpool 2” and “The New Mutants” are two examples of films in recent years which did introduce queer heroes with some significant story impact, but neither films were part of larger cinematic universes at the time of release.

Luckily for queer comic and hero fans, things are changing.  in Nov 2021, the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to include a LGBTQ hero hit theaters. “Eternals” introduces audiences to a new team of heroes, including the brilliant Phastos, an unmatched genius and inventor, as well as a loving husband to Ben and father to their son Jack. The couple’s relationship is a key aspect of Phastos’ story and helps viewers to find a relatable aspect of Phastos’ life. And they even get to share a moment that is still so rarely seen between queer couples in mainstream films – a kiss.

GLAAD is a frequent advisor to Disney’s Studio on LGBTQ representation and inclusion in their films, and “Eternals” was no exception. During the premiere screening of “Eternals,” I will never forget hearing the entire theater erupt into clapping and cheering when Phastos and Ben finally kissed. It is clear that this is what audiences have been waiting for.

We know that the LGBTQ community is quickly growing, with one in six members of Gen Z Americans self-identifying as LGBTQ. Data also shows that LGBTQ audiences are 22 percent more likely to go see a new theatrical release, and that seeing LGBTQ characters is one of the key factors in a person’s support for the community outside of personally knowing someone who is LGBTQ.

Seeing a powerful gay superhero kiss his husband and feeling the reaction in that theater was a real-life example of why it is important for our stories to be told – especially in films that travel to big cities and small towns around the world.

GLAAD’s most recent Studio Responsibility Index study found only 10 theatrically released films from eight major studio distributors included LGBTQ characters in 2020, and only 22 of 118 in 2019 – the most recent study which was not impacted by COVID. Of the 22 LGBTQ-inclusive films GLAAD counted in 2019, more than half of LGBTQ characters (28 of 50, 56 percent) received less than three minutes of total screen time, with 21 of those appearing for less than one minute including “Avengers: Endgame’s” “Grieving Man.”

“Eternals” marks a new path forward for Marvel – expanding the idea of who can be a hero in a way not yet seen in film, especially at the scale or budget of an MCU project. Moreover, the announced plans for the MCU’s future seem to make it clear that introducing heroes who look and love more like those in the world they defend is a sustained focus for the studio moving forward.

 

America Chavez, a Latina lesbian hero, will be introduced in the 2022 flick “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” and next summer’s “Thor: Love and Thunder” is set to bring a renewed focus on Valkyrie, the new King of Asgard, who “needs to find her queen.” Even beyond these confirmations, there are so many opportunities on the pages of comic books for queer heroes to reign supreme on big screens worldwide.

Entertainment remains our biggest cultural export and it is essential that those stories include LGBTQ people. Most importantly, they must reflect the full diversity of our community and experiences, from heroes to villains to the office employees who just wish they could go to work without aliens and Avengers destroying the city. “Eternals” may have been the first time I got to see a queer super hero live out his best life in the theaters, but I know it won’t be the last.
