Streaming service Disney+ has today (May 13th, 2022) revealed that new movie Fire Island – directed by Andrew Ahn and written by Joel Kim Booster – will premiere in the UK and Ireland on their platform, on June 3rd, 2022.

Set in the much talked about gay vacation destination off of Long Island, New York, the film is an unapologetic modern day romantic comedy, showcasing a diverse and multicultural exploration of queer culture, love, lust and, everything inbetween.

Inspired by Jane Austen’s classic Pride and Prejudice, audiences will watch as two best friends (Joel Kim Booster and Bowen Yang) set out for a legendary summer adventure, with cheap wine and a group of their most outgoing, eccentric and eclectic friends.

Alongside those two stars, Fire Island will also feature Margaret Cho, Conrad Ricamora, James Scully, Matt Rogers, Tomas Matos, Torian Miller, Nick Adams, Zane Phillips, Michael Graceffa, Peter Smith and, Bradley Gibson.

You can see a handful of first look images from the film below:

As a gay man and indeed a fan of Joel Kim Booster, amongst some of other stars appearing in this film, I have been excitedly anticipating the arrival of Fire Island ever since rumours of its filming started to set the LGBTQ+ world ablaze.

The trailer gives us a good idea of what to expect; plenty of camp comedy with a healthy dose of introspection, reflection and of course, drama.

It’s great to see so much diversity in the cast. I for one cannot wait to see what Margaret Cho brings.

It’s gonna be a must-see this summer!

Fire Island comes to Disney+ in the UK and Ireland from June 3rd, 2022.
