    Stranger Things’ Noah Schnapp Reflects on the Moment He Decided to Publicly Come Out – E! Online


    After the public confirmation about his character, as Schnapp recalled, the overall reaction changed his perspective on his personal life.

    “It kind of blew up in the press, and everyone was like, ‘Oh, Will’s gay! Hooray!'” he noted. “I saw all these comments on Instagram and TikTok. There was not one bad thing about him being gay. I was like, if he has all this support, then why should I worry about anything?”

    And after starting college at the University of Pennsylvania, Schnapp explained his new chapter drove him to a realization: “All these new girls were starting to hit on me, and I was like, ‘I don’t like this. I don’t want this.’ I was like, ‘Holy s–t. I know now.'”

    After coming out to those closest to him including his twin sister, parents and close friends such as Netflix costar Millie Bobby Brown, Schnapp said he decided it was time to “tell the world.”

    “In the end, I decided that if I was only out to my close circle, I would still feel like I’m hiding something,” the actor shared. “The only way to truly feel myself is to tell everyone.”

    In June, the Peanuts Movie star shared a glimpse inside his first Pride celebration in New York City and as he noted, the event proved to be “truly such a liberating feeling.”

    “Just seeing my parents cheer me on,” he recalled, “I’ve never felt so supported and loved.”
