The GLAAD Wrap: 'Rocko's Modern Life' premiere; new trailers for 'Titans,' 'Elite,' and 'Katy Keene'; music videos from King Princess, Tove Lo, and more!

Every week, The GLAAD Wrap brings you LGBTQ-related entertainment news highlights, fresh stuff to watch out for, and fun diversions to help you kick off the weekend.

1) The Netflix movie Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling is set to release on the streaming site this Friday, August 9th. The special, a continuation of the Nickelodeon TV series from the 90’s, will feature a prominent trans storyline with the character of Rachel, a member of the Bighead family. Set in the 21st century, Rocko and his friends must adapt to a changing world, while searching for (and accepting) Rachel. Watch the trailer for the 45-minute special below.

2) Adam, the new film from transgender director Rhys Ernst, hits movie theaters in New York next Wednesday, August 14th, and Los Angeles theaters on Friday, August 23rd. This smart, nuanced comedy premiered at Sundance in 2019, and was snapped up by Wolfe Releasing soon after. It has played at Toronto's Inside Out Film Festival and LA's Outfest, where Ernst snagged a special award for directing. Adam is set in Brooklyn during the summer of 2006, when a growing number of trans men, trans women, and non-binary people were becoming more visible in the queer community. (Ernst was, himself, living in Brooklyn and coming out as trans during that time.) Adam is a 17-year-old, naïve cisgender boy who comes to New York to spend the summer with his queer older sister. At a party, Adam meets the girl of his dreams who assumes that he is a transgender guy - and he doesn't correct her. This twist on the typical "transgender deception" narrative has caused some to express concern about the film. We encourage you to check out these articles about the film by trans and queer journalists including Jude Dry (IndieWire), Shannon Keating (Buzzfeed), Oliver Whitney (Vulture), and Jenni Olson (NewNowNext). Whether or not independent films can play in theaters around the country is often determined by how well they do on opening weekend in NY and LA. Consider seeing Adam on opening weekend to support a trans filmmaker and queer cinema.
