O’Farrell, City Council Declare September 30th “Bros Day” in the City of Los Angeles

The film from Universal Pictures, being released nationwide today, is the first gay romantic comedy from a major movie studio

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles City Council President Pro Tempore Mitch O’Farrell, an openly gay elected official, introduced a Resolution declaring today, September 30, 2022, “Bros Day” in the City of Los Angeles, in recognition of the trailblazing LGBTQ+ film being released today. Bros is the first gay romantic comedy from a major movie studio, and the first major studio film to feature an all-LGBTQ+ principal cast.

“Representation matters, and as a proud openly gay man I’m excited and encouraged to mark this milestone,” said Councilmember O’Farrell. “Even though the LGBTQ+ community has made so much progress in recent years, we know that we must not take any of it for granted, and there are still forces at work that want to set us back. It’s incredibly important that that queer people see themselves widely represented in our arts and culture. The release of Bros is a milestone in cinematic history, and an affirmation that LGBTQ+ people, and our relationships, should be celebrated.”
