The protagonist of I’m A Virgo is Cootie, a young man portrayed by Jharrel Jerome.

His family feels compelled to protect him from the outside world and anyone who might try to take advantage of him as a result. That, of course, cannot continue indefinitely, and Cootie finally departs from his house to discover Oakland, California, in its entirety.
