「我覺得這樣的故事 (BL) 可以幫助很多人探索自己，更了解這樣的議題 (LGBTIQ+)。像是《電競男孩》第一季上線的時候，我收到很多的訊息說自己終於能夠跟家人出櫃。甚至還有觀眾說他的母親看了這個劇然後之後，也能接受了他的同志身份。所以我覺得這樣的故事其實非常重要，不管是在哪一個世代，都能夠讓人們更加了解這個議題(LGBTIQ+)。」–– 伊萬・安德魯・帕亞瓦爾導演
"I believe the story that is being told can help different people who are struggling with their identities, who come to terms with knowing themselves. I remember when Gameboys season 1 aired online, a lot of messages poured in. They were telling us how he could come out to the family, and her mum actually watched our series and came to terms with acceptance in the family. So I believe a story like this is very important, not just to my generation but to all generations, to open their mind and hearts." said director Ivan Andrew Payawa.
"I think not only BL films, but we see a lot of LGBTQ+ communities' storytellings on Youtube and other platforms as well. I think it's important as this storytelling encourages people to think, reevaluate, and become a bridge to build a conversation around it. I think it certainly has an impact, and I hope this can be a positive impact that encourages people to have hope, faith and courage to be themselves." said director Tsai Mi-Chieh.
