You know what I really like about Alex from Julie and the Phantoms?
He wasn’t a gay stereotype TV always have.
Tumblr media
The way he dresses isn't flamboyant like other TV show gays. He had the same fashion as the other phantoms. He just looked like a 90s grunge/punk teenage boy.
He didn't talk in that one accent almost all TV show gays share.
Tumblr media
The only thing kinda stereotypical he did was the dancing.

Tumblr media
And even his sassy remarks came off as more sarcastic and chill.
Tumblr media
Then how we find out. The guys already know. There's not a big reveal or coming out scene. Just Alex is gay. The fact that it was even SAID. It wasn't just subtext, we didn't have to guess or assume. They say it outloud. "Gay" wasn't used as a bad word in a kids show. It was just a fact about him.
Even the "Alex is emotional" joke doesn't seem like a hurtful stereotype. The joke at first is Alex cries sure but then the very next scene it shows Luke & Reggie crying and he calls them emotional.
And everything with Willie. Its so relaxed and easy. There is no crisis. No I like a straight guy who turns out to hate me when I come out. No unnecessary homophobic scene. They are also both dead already so we don't even have to deal with that "all gay couples end in tragedy" thing either. It's clearly mutual.
Tumblr media
Its so obvious they like each other too. I mean the museum date?
How Willie always grabs Alex's hand.
Tumblr media
The "There's a lot to um... like here" while giving the 😍 eyes.
Tumblr media
The "I'd do anything for you" departure before that HUG.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Even when Luke finds out he has a crush. Its just a best friend teasing not a making fun of a gay kid. The "I'm happy for you Alex."
I just really loved this gay representation & think we need more like it.
PS: flamboyant gay guys are 100% valid I just think diversity is important for LGBTQ+ Rep.

If you get scared, you can always hide behind me. I’ll be hiding behind Luke.
