Love, Simon (Disney+ Show)

“Love, Simon” is a film produced by 20th Century Fox, which is now owned by Disney as part of its acquisition of Fox assets. Released in 2018, the film is based on the novel “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda” by Becky Albertalli. It centers on Simon Spier, a high school student who is keeping a secret from his family and friends: he is gay. The story unfolds as Simon starts an email romance with an anonymous classmate who is also gay, and he navigates the challenges of coming out, while trying to discover the identity of the person he has been corresponding with.

In addition to the film, Disney+ also launched a television series titled “Love, Victor,” which is set in the same universe as “Love, Simon.” The series follows Victor, a new student at Creekwood High School, dealing with his own journey of self-discovery, facing challenges at home, adjusting to a new city, and struggling with his sexual orientation. “Love, Victor” originally started on Hulu and expanded the narrative universe established by “Love, Simon,” offering a broader exploration of young adult, LGBTQ+ themes.

I have since returned to the magical place more than 20 times. I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
