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.
