The Two princes aren’t prepared for the emotions they feel for each other, which is a completely relatable feeling for kids ~ especially those in the LGBTQ+ community.
Noah Galvin playing the role of Prince Rupert, during an interview shared his opinion on the fairytale.
A love story, you know, would normally be a prince and a princess or a king and a queen and we’re subverting it and making it about two teenage princes. I think it’s beautiful and it’s beautifully representative of you know, not only Pride month, but also where we are in society. I think it’s something that people need and I think every little bit of representation matters” he stated. “Hell yeah, Let’s gay it up”.Noah Galvin
