Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp comes out as gay in the most Gen Z way

So happy for him!

Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp has come out as gay in easily the most Gen Z way possible – on TikTok.

The 18 year old shared the news with his fans online as he posted a video to his TikTok on Thursday after revealing he had come out to his friends and family.

“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 in the video.

In the clip, he uses a voiceover that says: “You know what it never was? That serious”, as he lay in bed casually.

Noah rose to fame after playing Will Byers in the hit Netflix show Stranger Things alongside Millie Bobby Brown, Winona Ryder and David Harbour.

After the final two episodes of season four of the show, Noah spoke to US publication Variety and revealed that his character was gay and in love with his best friend Mike, played by Finn Wolfhard.

Referencing Will in his own coming out post, Noah captioned the video: “I guess I’m more similar to Will than I thought.”
