Queerbaiting at its finest…. I get that you can’t really show all thats in the book but wtf! If you’re gonna make a movie based on a book that explores themes about sexuality, breaking norms, and discovering yourself inspite of what the world around you says, than do that!! Don’t just hint to Nate’s queerness, or don’t just show his only interaction to a lgbtq couple (and that too is just alluded to) is to ask for directions! The movie on its own is great, the fact that disney kept dropping hints of the character possibily being gay but not just outright saying it, says alot about them. They still need to make this movie profitable, so they’ll hint to it, but never outright admit it.
