Sweet, Accepting, and honest pure love

It was a cute and refreshing queer love story that we needed. I’m happy it’s not like the other lesbian movies where they have to pretend to be straight because they’re not out and it’s a very toxic environment etc etc.... The cast is diverse and the singing was beautiful. Everyone was sweet, supportive, and accepting. The moral of the story was so heartfelt and it’s a story that I could rewatch over again. There are corny bits, but it’s funny. Worth the money to watch and support these artists. I hope there are more positive queer movies like this in the future because it’s super important for all ages. If I saw this when I was younger, it would be life changing to see such love and acceptance to live your truth. I love it. I’m thankful for this movie.
