Noah Schnapp, 18, has come out as gay. He shared the news via a Jan. 5 TikTok that addressed the information in a fairly nonchalant way. “When I finally told my friends and family I was gay after being scared in the closet for 18 years and all they said was ‘we know’,” he wrote over video of himself lying in bed and mouthing the words to a sound that says, “You know what it never was? That serious. It was never that serious. Quite frankly would never be that serious.”

“I guess I’m more similar to will than I thought,” he captioned the video, referencing his Stranger Things character, Will Byers. There were years of speculation that Will, who was introduced to fans in the premiere episode of the hit Netflix show in 2016, was interested in men. Noah confirmed that Will was gay in July of 2022.
“Obviously, it was hinted at in Season 1: It was always kind of there, but you never really knew, ‘Is it just him growing up slower than his friends?’” Schnapp explained in a revealing interview with Variety. “Now that he’s gotten older, they made it a very real, obvious thing. Now it’s 100% clear that he is gay and he does love Mike.”
