A Christmas movie with a queer love story is coming your way.
Based on the best-selling book by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle, Let It Snow follows a group of high school seniors whose friendships and love lives collide after a snowstorm hits their small town on Christmas Eve.
Netflix promises “a stranded pop star, a stolen keg, a squad of competitive dancers, mysterious woman covered in tin foil and an epic party at the local Waffle Town” in the festive movie’s enticing synopsis.
It stars Isabela Merced (Dora and the Lost City of Gold), Shameik Moore (The Get Down), Odeya Rush (Ladybird), Mitchell Hope (Descendants), Kiernan Shipka (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Jacob Batalon (Spider-Man: Homecoming), and Joan Cusack.
The movie will also feature a same-sex romance between two characters played by Liv Hewson (Santa Clarita Diet) and YouTube star Anna Akana. Even better, both actors are queer in real life – Liv is non-binary and gay, while Anna is bisexual.
“That girl and I had a thing,” says Liv’s character in the trailer. “Have you ever been with someone and you stay up until like 4am just talking about everything, and you’re like I can’t believe I get to exist at the same time as you?”
Speaking about the movie to GayStarNews earlier this year, Liv said: “There are several different love stories and holiday tales and I get to play a lesbian, which is great. Lesbians have Christmas too!”

Let It Snow will be available to stream on Netflix from 8 November, 2019.
