Fire Island director Andrew Ahn said he fought for nudity in the hit LGBTQ+ film. On 3 June, LGBTQ+ fans and Fire Island Pine enthusiasts were finally treated to the highly anticipated queer rom-com.

Based on Jane Austen’s famous book Pride and Prejudice, the film follows two best friends – Noah (Joel Kim Booster) and Howie (Bowen Yang) – as they embark on their annual weeklong vacation to the titular gay hotspot.

Since its release, Fire Island has been praised for its rejection of harmful queer trauma tropes and for its celebration and glorification of LGBTQ+ culture.

The movie has also been lauded for casting queer actors in queer roles, as well as for having a queer director in Ahn. While the film has been described as a new LGBTQ+ rom-com classic, some of its more unapologetic content almost didn’t make it into the final cut.
