HOLY FUCKING SHIT!
I just watched Freak Show (2017) starring Alex Lawther AND I AM CRYING! It honestly makes me so happy to see a strong, brave, and gender nonconforming male character be portrayed in such a powerful and inspiring film.
I was always afraid to be authentic and eccentric with my naturally feminine inclinations due to the constant societal expectations being forced on me at such a young age. Growing up, I would have loved to see a representation of someone like me on film or in the media.
I always idolized confident and strong female characters while growing up (and to this day) but could never fully relate to them since I am a boy. Now I can finally say there’s a character out there that I can relate to on a much more personal level.
Please watch this film. I can not even begin to explain how honest and inspiring this movie is to me and could be for many LGBT+ people out there.
