Of course, not everyone is good at meeting people or forming close friendships, but in a separate interview, Bowen said that his Fire Island character, Howie, sets the perfect example. As Bowen explained, “Not to echo my character but I feel like there is this vulnerability that begets closeness and bonding. If you put yourself out there to get people to come to you, that’s when you start to form these bonds.”
Yes, it’s easier said than done, but Bowen knows there’s someone out there for everyone because “we all need” a chosen family at some point in our lives.
Fire Island is streaming now on Hulu.
