Billy Eichner's upcoming film "Bros" is set to make history, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

The film features an all-LGBTQ principal cast and will give LGBTQ representation a giant leap forward.

"Eichner is already the first openly gay man to co-write and star in his own major studio film, and now the Universal Pictures feature has made history by setting a historic all-LGBTQ principal cast," reports THR. "What's more, all of the principal heterosexual roles will be played by openly LGBTQ actors and actresses."

The cast includes Eichner, Luke Macfarlane ("Brothers & Sisters"), reality star and LGBTQ activist TS Madison, gender non-conforming entertainer Miss Lawrence, "RuPaul's Drag Race" Season 13 winner Symone, Guillermo Diaz ("Scandal," "Weeds") and Guy Branum, the creator and host of TruTV's "Talk Show the Game Show," who previously wrote for Eichner's "Billy on the Street."

"Bros" is described as a "smart, swoony and heartfelt comedy" about two men stumbling toward love. Possibly.

"Eichner co-wrote the script alongside Nicholas Stoller, with whom he worked on Netflix's 'Friends From College,'" reports THR. "Stoller will direct and exec produce alongside Judd Apatow, Eichner and Josh Church ('Trainwreck')."
