Billed as the first mainstream rom-com to feature LGBTQ characters front and center, Hulu’s holiday feature "Happiest Season," aims to reach a big audience with its tender-hearted comedy starring Twilight’s Kristen Stewart and Terminator Dark Fate’s Mackenzie Davis.
How sentimental! Or is it? On the surface, these made for TV movies popularized by The Hallmark Channel and Lifetime Network seem at odds with putting LGBTQ relationships in focus, but Happiest Season is so much more than that.
The movie delivers a feel good story without reducing the legendary ensemble into ridiculous caricatures. It even shows the violence some queer people face when coming out.
Today we’re taking a look at all the queer romantic comedy, made-for-TV holiday films that will be stuffing your TV stocking this season, including “Happiest Season” which we think would be great if it was renamed K-Stew’s Queer Christmas Miracle (which of course was released during the Beaver Moon.)
