“Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda,” a popular young adult novel by Becky Albertalli, revolves around a young man struggling to come to terms with his sexuality, has been made into a movie and will be released on March 16.

Simon Spier (Nick Robinson) is a teenager in high school who loves to hang out with his friends and family members. He’s living the teenage life but he has a secret: he’s gay. He hasn’t come out yet due to the fear of being rejected by his friends and family, and fears of accepting himself as well. The film follows his struggle to live the life of a teen who wants to come out.

Director Greg Berlanti has directed other films and television shows such as “Green Lantern,” “Pan,” “The Flash” and “Supergirl.” The film’s cast include Katherine Langford (Leah Burke,) Miles Heizer (Cal Price,) Jennifer Garner (Emily Spier) and Josh Duhamel (Jack Spier.) Langford has been in the famous Netflix show “Thirteen Reasons Why,” alongside Heizer. Heizer has also been in “Nerve” and “Parenthood.”

The LGBTQIA community is filled with excitement and anticipation to see a film that represents more than just another heterosexual love story. This film will open up conversations with many teens who relate to the film. It will help anyone who is having trouble accepting themselves.

“Representation matters and that’s why I’m happy and excited to see the LGBTQIA being represented in this movie,” sophomore Alyanna Ahorro said. “Movies and the movie industry are evolving and are more diverse and open to all types of sexualities.”

The drama/romance, rated PG-13, depicts how you should never be afraid of who you are. It shows how you should accept yourself because you never know what great things can come from being you.
