If Halloween is approaching, that means it's practically Christmas at Hallmark Channel, which released its slate of holiday-centric movies and special TV episodes on Wednesday.

In real life, Bennett is also in a committed same-sex partnership; he recently posted on Instagram that he bought a house with his partner, Jaymes Vaughan.

One Million Moms, a Christian fundamentalist group, has a petition online decrying the network.

The LGBTQ community is finally getting its chance to shine this holiday season, thanks to several new, inclusive films, series and specials coming out between November and December. In , both the Hallmark Channel and Lifetime announced their first-ever gay-led, Holiday-themed rom-coms , The Christmas House and The Christmas Setup , joining an increasingly diverse mix of original movies produced each year. In addition to those channels, streaming platforms like HBO Max, Hulu and Netflix are also embracing the holidays with a dash of queer content, from a holiday makeover series in the spirit of Queer Eye and a reality dating competition that sees one of the men hoping to fill his sleigh with love before Christmas Day.

Just like most woman-loving-woman relationships, the film is quite the saga of ups, downs, heartbreak, and tortured passion. Many grew up watching and loving classic '80s high school rom-coms such as Pretty in Pink , Sixteen Candles , and Say Anything.
