Of all of the great queer romantic comedies in recent years, Hulu's "Fire Island" is one of the best. Starring and written by gay comedian Joel Kim Booster, this memorable streaming hit is an adaptation of Jane Austin's "Pride & Prejudice."

Booster's infectious personality shines through in real life just as much as it did in the film. He isn't afraid to show the most intimate moments in his life with fans on Instagram, from thirst traps to awards shows to Folsom festivals with friends. He is one of the most famous queer Asian-American celebrities working at the moment, and we want to celebrate his contributions to the LGBTQ+ with this collection of his best posts!

Ringing in a new year with your significant other is one of the most romantic moments in a relationship, but queer people often have been afraid to show public displays of affection.

When most celebrities post shirtless photos, it's hard to argue that the pictures are inspirational. But when Joel Kim Booster decides to show off for the gram, it's a whole different story.

The skyline aesthetic helps to make this photo incredibly mesmerizing!

Joel Kim Booster was able to transport us back in time to a rally in which gay Asian-Americans were fighting for their rights on the streets with Pride signs. It really shows people how the progressive movement for LGBTQ+ people has been in progress for decades, and these queer ancestors are the ones who deserve so much more credit for the rights the community has in 2023. There's still so much more to go, but we've made it a long way!
