!! OMG, WATCH: This mainstream gay teen love story may be the first of it’s kind !!

A new film, Love, Simon is being marketed as a mainstream film for teens – which is awesome, because the lead is gay! A rare sight seen with a wide release in terms on onscreen representation.

Everyone deserves a great love story. But for seventeen-year old Simon Spier it’s a little more complicated: he’s yet to tell his family or friends he’s gay and he doesn’t actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he’s fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing. Directed by Greg Berlanti (Dawson’s Creek, Brothers & Sisters), written by Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger (This is Us), and based on Becky Albertalli’s acclaimed novel, LOVE, SIMON is a funny and heartfelt coming-of-age story about the thrilling ride of finding yourself and falling in love.

Check out the trailer above! Could times be-a-changin’?
