It’s the year of the queer holiday rom-com or romance movie. And it’s about time. Last year Netflix’s Let It Snow and Freeform’s Ghosting: The Spirit of Christmas featured queer storylines, and it was a reminder that LGBTQ+ people need holiday movies too. There are several on the horizon, including the first studio-backed Christmas flick with queer lead characters, Happiest Season, directed by Clea DuVall and starring Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis. Stalwart romance movie networks have joined the fray with Lifetime's The Christmas Setup and Hallmark's The Christmas House. Now there's a gay cowboy Christmas romance on the way.
Thanks for the tip! I just watched Uncle Frank, Amazon Prime, out just in time for T-Day. Not officially a holiday movie but certainly about a gay guy heading home to face a lot of family, most cluelessly conservative. A decidedly more somber film, but the lead's boyfriend provides welcome comic relief.
