Love, Simon movie –a gay coming-of-age/coming out comedy-drama set to hit theaters on  March 16, 2018, sent the gay population of the city of West Hollywood a shoutout via a promotional Billboard located on the northeast corner of La Cienega Blvd and Olympic Blvd.

“Dear LA,” the billboard reads, “which way to WEHO? Asking for a friend. Love, Simon”

Love, Simon, directed by Greg Berlanti, is based on the novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. The film stars Nick Robinson, Josh Duhamel, and Jennifer Garner.

Everyone deserves a great love story, but for 17-year-old Simon Spier, it’s a little more complicated. He hasn’t told his family or friends that he’s gay, and he doesn’t know the identity of the anonymous classmate that he’s fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing. The a closeted gay teenager is forced to balance his friends, his family, his email pen pal Blue, and the blackmailer threatening to out him to the entire school.

TheLove, Simon movie held a special screening at The London Hotel in West Hollywood on January 14. Robinson and his co-stars Logan Miller and Talitha Bateman saw the film for the first time with an audience. They were later joined by the film’s director Greg Berlanti for a Q&A moderated by justjared.com editor in chief Jared Eng. Other celebrities in attendance included: Victoria Justice, Maia Mitchell, Cierra Ramirez, Courtney Eaton.
