Take a first look at acclaimed gay romance 'Boy Meets Boy'

Boy Meets Boy is the queer Euro-mumblecore love story we need now. Harry has been partying for 48 hours when he meets Johannes on the dance floor of a club in Berlin. With 15 hours until his flight home, Johannes offers to help him print his boarding pass.

This simple gesture leads to a day together wandering the city. The contrasts in their lives and values force each one to confront their own truths. Will this encounter be more than just a passing moment of joy?

This superbly moving feature directed by Daniel Sanchez Lopez is an intimate view of contemporary gay culture showing the fears and fragilities of the millennial queer generation and seeks to empower them to be critical of the normative.

Boy Meets Boy is about coming out of the “second closet” meaning the search for inclusion and identity within a community. The film is set in the streets of Berlin and uses documentary footage to blend the character among real places and people giving it striking authenticity.

Filmed in English and German, and featuring Matthew James Morrison and Alexandros Koutsoulis, the film has attracted accolades and is already garnering award nods such as Frameline San Francisco International LGBTQ Film Festival 2021 Nominee for Outstanding First Feature.

Over the summer, Chicago's PrideArts chose the film to conclude its four-week festival with a weeklong streaming.

Boy Meets Boy is streaming everywhere on October 26 and in limited release.

I don’t know what it is with men’s jeans that make it so difficult to find the right pair. It takes time to go through all these denim brands and try styles like straight-legged, boot-cut, and then the disco favorite, flared jeans. Thanks to popular metal bands back in the day, acid-washed and stone-washed jeans were a thing–pair those with a biker jacket and some big hair, and you were set.
