Fans Love ‘Candyman’s’ Refreshing Portrayal of a Gay Couple

0

Out.com reports that Queer audiences heading to theaters this week to catch the much-anticipated Candyman sequel are in for a surprisingly delicious treat. The Nia DaCosta directed and Jordan Peele produced film not only stars out actors Colman Domingo and Carl Clemmons-Hopkins, but also prominently includes a gay couple — and (spoiler alert) despite this being a horror movie, it doesn’t bury its gays. The couple in question is Troy Cartwright — the gay brother of Brianna (Teyonah Parris) — and his partner Grady, played Nathan Stewart-Jarrett and Kyle Kaminsky, respectively. Although Troy and Grady might not technically be main characters (they are in our hearts!), they do play a notable role in the action and provide audiences the opportunity to see a loving, authentic depiction of gay love.
