The Celluloid Closet: Today’s discussion

In the present day, homosexuality is more acknowledged than before. We have more homosexual movies that explores the relationship between the said characters (Ex: Broke Back Mountain). However, we also still have comedies that put the stereotypes of homosexuality back to square one. (Ex: How someone, who is gay should act, in evidence of the trailer for G.B.F: linked below)

What caught my attention was how the three popular girls wanted a G.B.F because it is trendy and it will help them "win". Eventually this causes Tanner to become instantly popular,as the three prom queen front runners try to manipulate him to their liking (backing up the stereotype of how gays should act). In the trailer, ‘Shley has a quote "Don’t you think it would be kind of neat to meet a real life gay?" (It is like pushing homosexuality back in to the closet- by not speaking about it)

I thought it was an interesting find! What do you think of the trailer?
