Being your authentic self is hard, no matter what age. Coming out to friends/family with your truth is the most rewarding and yet difficult act. “Love, Victor,” on Hulu has captured this feeling and journey brilliantly.
Set in the world of the original 2018 film “Love, Simon,” the series follows Victor, played by Michael Cimino, a new student at Creekwood High School on a journey of discovery, while facing challenges at home, adjusting to a new city, and struggling with his sexual orientation. When it all seems too much, he reaches out to Simon, played by Nick Robinson, to help him navigate the vicissitudes of high school as a gay youth.
“Love, Victor,” has opened my eyes to the lies that most of us live:
This is not a typical coming out story with a sad ending. It is a journey and one that shows the challenges for all in Victor's world.
