“Love, Simon” is the movie that today’s teens have been hoping for

While there have been multiple successful movies that highlight LGBT characters and relationships, like Moonlight and Call Me by Your Name, these movies are typically aimed at older audiences with R ratings or more artistic audiences with showings only at arthouse theaters. In teen-aimed content, LGBT representation has a reputation for not going well, usually either having stereotypical one-sided characters or very sad storylines. In recent years this has been improving, but #buryyourgays is an undeniable trope. Some people think movies like Love, Simon aren’t necessary and that current teens won’t appreciate it but I disagree. Love, Simon provides semi-realistic positive content for teens, whether or not they’re gay, Love, Simon is a fun relatable story, and positive relatable role-models are never unneeded when you’re growing up.
