PRESS: Michael Cimino Wants to Inspire Teens to Live Out Loud

Michael shared the news on his Twitter last night that VMAN had done an article about him, as well as the accompanying photoshoot by Connor Franta. Check out highlights below.

There are so many reasons to Love, Victor, but we also love the breakout star portraying Victor — actor Michael Cimino. Michael brings a fresh perspective as a new actor and person of color to the Hulu original series. Standing out among other teenage coming-of-age stories, Love, Victor confronts topics of race, sexuality, social class, machismo culture, and more. By the same token, Michael isn’t afraid to talk about these social issues. As an ally to the LGBTQ+ community, Michael found ways to appreciate Pride Month in quarantine. Along with all of us, he “learned how to celebrate within his home and stay connected,” finding time to call his friends, cook, and make new traditions. Inevitably, Pride could never be canceled. The sense of community is stronger than ever, as this year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.

Michael has also been utilizing his platform to support the Black Lives Matter movement, protesting police brutality, and the racial injustices that are America and in his community. “I have been trying to leverage my platform to not only educate people about the ways they could help, but I’ve also been lucky to find an amazing group of leaders in the community (We Are the Movement LA) that I have been leading protests with,” Michael shared proudly. “We are trying to continue the movement and continuously make a change and speak out on injustices.” Love, Victor decided to move their release date two days earlier, to June 17th, so that the holiday of Juneteenth had its day in the spotlight.
