'Single All the Way' is the gay Holiday rom-com we were wishing for

Single All the Way is coming to Netflix in time to make the Yuletide gay!

Desperate to avoid his family’s judgment about his perpetual single status, Peter (Michael Urie) convinces his best friend Nick (Philemon Chambers) to join him for the holidays and pretend that they're now in a relationship. But when Peter’s mother (Kathy Najimy) sets him up on a blind date with her handsome trainer James (Luke Macfarlane)— the plan goes awry.

Single All the Way also stars camp comedy icons Jennifer Coolidge, Barry Bostwick, and Jennifer Robertson.

Written by Chad Hodge and directed by Michael Mayer, Single All the Way is that rare thing: a feature film with gay or queer main characters in a Holiday setting.

“Chad Hodge has written a laugh-out-loud-funny and lump-in-throat-sweet movie that Michael Mayer will effortlessly lift off the page,” Urie said when the movie was first announced, according to ET.

“My mom is Kathy Najimy, my dad is Barry Bostwick and my aunt is Jennifer Coolidge — if that isn’t some kinda gay Christmas miracle, I don’t know what is.” 

Writer Hodge reportedly revealed that he made a list of all the things he, as a queer person, would want to see in a holiday film like this.

“The list ran the gamut, from honestly portraying the uniqueness of gay friendships and relationships, to the often hilarious dynamics of our families, to Jennifer Coolidge,” he said.

Mental Health for LGBTQ+ Aging Adults

Queer elders have made a big impact on the world. Queer folks over the age of 65 were around during the Stonewall Movement in the 1960s and may have even campaigned to improve the rights and freedoms of LGBTQ+ people around the world.

But, as queer elders enter later life, they may need to find new ways to protect and preserve their mental health.
