Billy Eichner's Gay Rom Com "Bros," Ryan Field Books

Billy Eichner’s Gay Rom Com “Bros”

Unlike the quasi-gay movie The Policeman with straight Harry Styles playing gay for pay, Billy Eichner has a new film out that is not only authentic gay content but openly gay actors star in it. It’s titled, Bros, and it was not written by a straight white woman. 

Eichner is doing, basically, what gay romance writers and publishers were doing with books about ten years ago. He made a rom-com about a gay couple because no one really ever did that before. Like I said, gay romance authors were doing this ten years ago and a small group of readers discovered us, but nothing ever went mainstream, with the exception of a few fake gay romances written by straight authors like Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx. 

Eicher also believes it’s time for a change and I couldn’t agree more with him. I’ll take it a step further and say I think it’s time we all took back our gay content from all these straight people who appropriate us. And any gay man who disagrees should take a second look at what’s happening to gay content. 

One of the stars is Luke McFarlan who is openly gay but has done a lot of Hallmark movies, which I love. If you do a quick search with his name you’ll find a lot of information about him. Eichner also mentions how traditionally Hollywood has been very homophobic. I can state for a fact that so has book publishing. The straight white author usually gets the contract. And many times, if it’s gay content, it’s still the straight white author getting the contract. 

This article I’m linking to gives you some of the dialogue, which is excellent. You can read more about it, here, where you’ll also find a video.
