It took until 2018 to get a mainstream teen rom-com with gay leads (Love, Simon). Just four years later, another bold step has been taken with Anything's Possible. Directed by Emmy winner Billy Porter, the film tells the story of a romance between cisgender boy and a transgender girl.
In their courtship, Khal (Abubakr Ali) and Kelsa (Eva Reign) must navigate all the usual teen nonsense - jealousy, bullies and intense feelings - with gender and sexual issues on top of all that. Luckily Kelsa has a close-knit group of friends and a supportive mom (Renée Elise Goldsberry). Shot in Porter's native Pittsburgh, the film was originally scheduled for theatrical release. But as with so many live action movies without superheroes, it's headed for streaming.
Anything's Possible launches exclusively on Prime Video on July 22.
