    Mean Girls is back and gayer than ever

    The buzz around town is all about Mean Girls and how it’s shaping up to be a fetch sapphic sensation. With whispers of hidden depths to classic characters and nods to LGBTQIA+ representation, you’ve got to wonder: what new layers will unfold on screen?

    Gays all over the globe have been losing their minds all over TikTok and social media And guess what? Queer icon Reneé Rapp, plays none other than Regina George.

    But Rapp isn’t the only cast member in Mean Girls who’s out and proud. Auli’i Cravalho, who’s playing Janis also came out as bisexual during the early days of the pandemic in April 2020.

    Tony-award-winning actor, Jaquel Spivey, opened up during an EW roundtable to discuss that much of what led him to take the role of Damien had to do with the importance of multidimensional representation. 

    “But for me, I was like, ‘How many chubby gay guys are on screen? How much is that representation shown?’ I wanted to be a part of it. It’s cool to show somebody out there that’s like you, and that’s what Mean Girls did for me. When [Damian] threw that shoe, I was like, ‘OK! If that’s what the queens do, that’s what the queens do.’ So to get a chance to try my hand at that, and to have [Tina Fey’s] blessing, the OG cast members who sent their love to us. It just felt like the right thing to do,” said Spivey.

    This kind of representation isn’t just refreshing; it’s crucial. Seeing yourself reflected on screen can turn any movie into something more personal and profound.

    So, what better way to celebrate this cast and the impact this story has had on the LGBTQIA+ community than by watching it after having survived high school and while on a hot sapphic date?

    The sapphic appeal of Mean Girls (2024): A date night must-see

    Mean Girls is a queer culture staple. It’s witty, it’s chaotic, it’s dramatic, it’s vulnerable, it’s relatable, and it’s resonated deeply within our community, making it the perfect date movie to watch with your new (or established) boo and friends. 

    Get ready to sit on the edge of your seat because “Mean Girls” is back, and this time with a twist that’s all about technical finesse. 

    When you think high school drama meets cutting-edge cinema tech, it’s not just girl cliques and pink outfits; it’s also about how those vicious exchanges get amplified in theaters. And trust me, when Regina George delivers her iconic lines, you want every chilling word crystal clear.

    This isn’t just a movie; it’s an invitation to an unforgettable experience. Picture this: a theater buzzing with anticipation, a sea of pink outfits reflecting the diverse styles of Cady Heron and Regina George, and an atmosphere charged with the energy of LGBTQIA+ pride. As the lights dim, the revamped script and iconic characters come to life in stunning clarity, delivering a cinematic spectacle like never before.

    The ultimate guide to planning your Mean Girls movie outing

    Got your pink outfit ready? Great, because when it comes to watching Mean Girls, dressing up is not just fun — it’s practically a requirement.

    Karen Smith nailed it when she said, “On Wednesdays, we wear pink,” honestly, why limit that fierce fashion statement to one day of the week?

    Gather your crew or plan that sapphic first date and make an entrance at the theater channeling Cady Heron or even the alpha Plastic Regina George herself. After all, you’re about to watch iconic stars shine in their roles as they bring new life into this beloved story. I think that deserves a little dress-up.

    Before settling into those plush seats with popcorn in hand, consider kicking off your evening with something crafty fun, like creating a Burn Book of your own (minus any real-life gossip; let’s leave that in 2004). Let this be a chance for you, your friends, and your lover to laugh over silly sketches or inside jokes instead.
