Watch the NSFW Trailer for Billy Eichner’s Queer Rom-Com Bros Here

Luke MacFarlane and Billy Eichner

The NSFW trailer for the upcoming queer comedy Bros has finally arrived and it's been worth the wait. 

Bros is the first LGBTQ+ romantic comedy green-lit by a major studio. Eichner co-wrote, produced, and is one of two male leads in the Universal Pictures film. He's the first out gay man to ever write and star in his own major studio film. The film follows Eichner as a podcast host hired by a studio to pen a gay romantic comedy.

The trailer shows circuit parties, family moments, gym workouts, business meetings, and even a four-man orgy — and also a cameo of sorts by The Advocate.

Every major cast member in the film is LGBTQ+, including Luke Macfarlane, Amanda Bearse, Harvey Fierstein, Bowen Yang, Ts Madison, Symone, Miss Lawrence, Guillermo Diaz, and Guy Branum. Even the straight parts are portrayed by LGBTQ+ actors.

“From the very beginning of developing Bros, I let everyone involved know that, while I wanted to make a movie that was hilarious and relatable to everyone, first and foremost I wanted to make a movie that felt authentic for the LGBTQ folks that the movie is about — and who have been so profoundly underserved by Hollywood over the years, particularly the major movie studios. From the storytelling to the casting to the crew, it was crucial for me that the needs of LGBTQ+ people were being prioritized,” Eichner said in a statement announcing the trailer’s release.

Eichner added that he’s been an out performer since starting stand up in New York more than 20 years.

“And while it's insane to me that it took this long to get this movie made, it's still incredibly exciting to me — and a real sign of progress — that the same studio making movies like Jurassic World and The Fast and the Furious is also releasing this R rated gay rom with an all LGBTQ+ cast, and with as much passion and enthusiasm as they release those other films,” he said. “It's taken way too long. I wish we had a movie like Bros when I was a kid — but I'm so excited and proud that this day has finally come!”

While he acknowledged the historic nature of the film, Eichner said that he also wanted Bros to be an “authentic, hilarious, and heartfelt film” about a single queer man navigating a relationship in today's world. 

“This movie is a long time coming. But here we are,” Eichner said. “The era of Bros is upon us!”

Bros is out in theaters on September 30.
