“Love, Simon” and representation on the Big Screen

Among the tsunami of superhero and action movies that have been crashing onto the shores of theatres near you, one particular cheesy love story sticks out: “Love, Simon”. With a cast featuring “Everything, Everything’s” Nick Robinson and “13 Reasons Why’s” Katherine Langford, “Love, Simon” already looks fairly promising. But the cast isn’t the only reason this big screen movie is going to stand out; it’s the plot.

Based on the book “Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda” by Becky Albertalli, “Love, Simon” is a coming-of-age and coming-out tale produced by 20th Century Fox. According to Variety, it revolves around a closeted high school boy named Simon. Simon is unfortunately being blackmailed by another boy at school named Martin, who threatens to reveal his sexuality. Meanwhile, Simon is falling in love with his mysterious internet friend who goes by the name “Blue”. Yes, a major film studio is producing a gay rom-com for the mainstream, something that is rarely ever heard of.

LGBTQ representation is a huge issue in recent years. 2018 however, is beginning to turn a new leaf. With “Love, Simon” coming out this March, as well as mainstream LGBTQ movie “Call Me By Your Name” being nominated for three different Oscars this year, big steps are being taken for progressiveness in the media.
