Romeo saw Juliet from below her balcony. Mark and Rey saw each other on Instagram.
The latter may sound less romantic when you put it that way. But if there’s one thing we know about love in the 21st century — particularly queer love — it’s that it can happen anywhere.

It may never have happened, though, if Rey hadn’t been brave enough to reach out first via DM. They hung out shortly after, but it didn’t take long for their connection to become permanent.
In the second episode of Queer Love, Mark and Rey give us the details on how they fell in love — including a connection through eyesight that couldn’t be ignored.
