‘13 Reasons Why’ and ‘Love, Simon’ actor Miles Heizer joins Netflix’s newest military drama ‘The Corps’.
Inspired by US Marine Greg Cope White’s memoir ‘The Pink Marine’, ‘The Corps’ tells the story of underdog gay high school student Cameron Cope (Heizer) who joins the Marine Corps with his straight best friend Ray, hoping that it would turn him into a “real man.”
Heizer himself came out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community when he was 19.
The synopsis continues: “It’s a dangerous move at a time when being gay in the military meant a prison sentence or worse. The two friends plunge into Marine Corps boot camp — amid both literal and metaphorical land mines — joining a platoon of young men on a harrowing journey of transformation.”
