‘Stranger Things’ actor Noah Schnapp comes out as gay

It is never easy to come out of the closet especially if you are a public figure scrutinized by every single person on the internet. However, just recently, Stranger Things actor Noah Schnapp was able to endure that and now has more in common with his character on the show Will Byers.


On Thursday, January 5, Noah revealed that he identifies as gay. Lip-syncing along with another creator’s sound saying “You know what it never was? That serious,” Schnapp wrote a message over the video saying, “When I finally told my friends and family that I was gay after being scared in the closet for 18 years, and all they said was ‘we know.’”
