Today, it’s not enough to just have queer stories; they actually have to be good. With “Moonlight”, a film about not only gay characters but black characters winning the Oscar last year despite the Academy being old white men, and with “Call Me By Your Name” up for awards this weekend, our entertainment culture has maybe finally reached the point where it’s not enough to thoughtlessly include token minority characters or storylines; they have to be interesting, imaginative, and worthwhile too. You don’t get points for just ticking the box for ‘queer characters and/or plots’ and not producing anything of quality or thought. Well that’s what I thought the rules were.
