Film Daily | GMMTV Channel
Many Filipinos have been obsessed with the queer web series “2gether,” which is a love story between male high school students Tine and Sarawat. Every time a new episode is uploaded on GMMTV’s YouTube channel, hashtags related to the series take up the top spots in the Philippines’ trending topics.
“2gether” is just one of many shows that prove there should be more space for same-sex love stories in mainstream media, which can also help normalize such relationships in real life. Now that the show is over, here’s a list of other BL series you can binge-watch.
Theory of Love
This Thai web series about a boy who’s been secretly in love with his best friend. It focused on Third, a film major, and a member of the Savage Team along with his best friends Two, Bone, and Khai. The show tackles how much a person can take because of love and the decisions we make to keep a person in our lives, even if it hurts.
Sotus: The Series
“SOTUS” features a senior engineering student named Arthit who initiates freshmen who wants to get into the Faculty of Engineering. For the longest time, he thought he was the law in the school until freshman Kongpob stands up against him. The two start out being rivals but end up becoming close as they get to know each other.
Love By Chance
“Love by Chance” is reminiscent of “Love, Simon” because of how Pete is being blackmailed by an ex-boyfriend who’s trying to out him. Ae later helps him with the situation, which develops into a friendship and a deeper relationship between the two college students.
This is not a Thai series but it’s a must-see show. It’s based on Ryan O’Connell’s memoir where he talks about living life as a gay man with mild cerebral palsy. The series shows his struggle with dating and sex, as well as how he overcame the insecurity of living with his disability.
“Sex Education” isn’t necessarily a Thai BL series, but it still features some of the most realistic portrayals of same-sex relationships. The most notable was between Eric and Rahim in season two, which showed the highs and lows of having a boyfriend for the first time.
