Love, Victor follows Victor, a new student at Creekwood High School on his own journey of self-discovery, 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 to help him navigate the ups and downs of high school.
This show fills a space that most of us were not aware we needed filled. Content like this would have been so beneficial to me, and others like me, if I was able to watch this at a younger age. The movie it’s based off of is one of my favorite movies of all time but where this show really sets itself apart is how it handles the familial experience. I’m completely captivated by the journey the character takes and can relate to so many aspects of this. It’s so important that this story is being told on this platform and I hope they continue to expand and diversify the telling of it. Straight people had so many examples of love and friendship while growing up and the LGBT+ community were left to journey through the dark. I know this just came out but I came here to praise this in all of its excellence before the career trolls arrived to attack it and minimize its efforts. I’m glad to hear there’s already a writers room for season 2. Hopefully this blows up the way it should.
