Netflix – Boys in the Band

Watched the Netflix remake of “Boys in the Band.” Nobody’s really going to understand why they were all so horrible to each other. (Everybody’s missing the crucial context that they’re all closeted, with the possible exception of Emory, who gives zero shits about anybody’s approval.)

This may be a thing that casting all openly gay actors in these roles obscures. (Gay actors playing gay roles is a good thing. t’s just that this other thing is also, well… a thing.)
