There are few things more important to a thick skin than the ability to laugh at yourself – nobody is perfect and sometimes a good skewer is the best medicine. But when it comes to keeping things really fun, it’s important to rip within your own community. It’s something too community Outstanding Jim Rash, who also stars alongside Billy Eichner in the new rom-com brothersShe says he feels the movie nails.

in a (n interview With The AV ClubManuel Betancourt, Rash, credits Eichner – who co-wrote the film with Nicholas Stoller – for creating a show of the queer community that feels uniquely (and hilariously) lifelike.

Rash saw a particularly poignant quip in the storyline about feuding board members attempting to dedicate a wing of the museum to the queer community. Any member who focuses on their own “letter” along the LGBTQ+ spectrum and gets the focus they deserve ends up fighting each other and making any kind of decision difficult.

“I think that for Billy and all of us – but Billy in particular as you write this – [it] crafted something that allows us to have fun at our expense. In a good way,” says Rash. “Because I find the humor”I am the most important! I am not be seen!” fits into the larger notion that the group itself wants to be seen as a community.”

brothers In part, it achieves its deliciously accurate comedic edge through its use of an all-LGBTQ+ cast. It’s something Eichner has spoken proudly about, and Rash says it felt like a “celebration” to enter such a set. After all, no one knows you better than you do – and no one knows how to lovingly mock you.

Rash’s best hope for brothers is that it won’t be the last film of its kind, but will only spur the industry to have more layered (and more transparent) conversations about queer visibility on screen. (After all, there has to be a balance between bury your gays and wash white She.)

“Obviously we’ve seen the ups and downs of high visibility in TV and film. And what I hope will happen with brothers Coming from a big studio is more consistent,” explains Rash. “That if this isn’t the start of the conversation, at least it will continue from here. Because there are many more stories that need to be told. Hopefully it’s the beginning of that.”
