BIG Gay Love is a comedy about a chubby, overweight gay man who overcomes discrimination based on his looks to find love on his own terms! The devastating effect of our physique-obsessed culture is devastating. Bob appears to have it all – a great job, fabulous friends, and is about to become a first time homebuyer. But his success hasn’t come without a price for Bob has become the chubby gay man everyone adores, but nobody desires. To keep up appearances with his friends, Bob considers going under the knife to fit in and be perfect. But underneath it all he longs for something more. It has been increasingly difficult for Bob to love himself because of the world he lives in. As a party planner who throws hip parties he is surrounded by models, actors, and beautiful people. Not unlike the gay world, it is the only world he knows, and it is impossible for Bob to escape. As a consequence, Bob has lost himself and can no longer see his own beauty. Big Gay Love is a love letter for everyone who’s ever wanted to be accepted for themselves regardless of their color, shape, or size. We are making Big Gay Love because we are tired of seeing rom-com movies about beautiful people looking for sex and pretending it's love, okay? Let's dig deeper people! Let's see some fatties and normal bodies! In Big Gay Love, we turn the tables around the convention of beauty. The heightened image of beauty that is constantly fed to gay men is as damaging as it is to women who have suffered years of scrutiny from the fashion and advertising world. It is important to see images that counter that so we don’t feel alien to our own bodies. It is time we shift the lens of what it means to be “beautiful”.
