Billy Eichner's LGBTQ+ actor packed rom-com, "Bros," is on the horizon, and he recently sat down to answer a few burning questions with Collider.

Produced by Universal, a preview of the film made its debut at this year's CinemaCon. Eichner co-wrote the film with director Nicholas Stoller, and it is the first rom-com about gay men produced by a major studio.

In his Collider interview, Eichner went into his main missions for the film, including portraying showing gay sex on film.

"It was important to me. It's a part of life, you know?" said Eichner. "For straight people, for gay people, for bi people, for everyone. And we're making a romantic comedy. Sex is romantic and it's also really funny. We take sex very seriously. But sex can be really funny. And how can you do a story about two people falling for each other and not deal with sex?"

The cast of "Bros" has been groundbreaking in that the entire ensemble cast is made up of all-LGBTQ+ actors. Even the straight roles are played by gay actors, including Luke Macfarlane, theater legend Harvey Fierstein, "Saturday Night Live's" Bowen Yang, "Zola" star Ts Madison, "Drag Race" season 13 winner Symone, and more.
