Honestly, words can’t describe how happy I am that I found out about Skam a couple of weeks ago. How the show is dealing with Isak and his sexuality is something that we desperately need in today’s media. It’s not super dramatic, friendships aren’t being destroyed because he happens to have a thing with another guy, his best friend accepted it like it was no big deal, his friends have no problem with it and even started talking about pansexuality/bisexuality - when do we ever get this in tv-shows?
These scenes always seem to end up in some huge dramatic way, which for some it might be but for others it isn’t. What do you think it does to someone that’s just coming to terms with their own sexuality and getting ready to come out to friends and/or family when most of these coming-out scenes that we see in today’s media end up in some dramatic way with friendships or families being ripped apart?
Thanks Skam, for finally showing us a different outcome.
