To be honest, while watching the hit Netflix series, I picked up on subtle hints that his character Will Byers may have feelings for his best friend Mike during a few passing moments of the latest season. Knowing Hollywood, things in character can sometimes bleed into real life (pregnancy etc.). In fact, early in 2022 he finally revealed in an interview that Will is gay. 

The fact that Noah is so young, has figured out who he is as a human and is so open with the world about it is remarkable. This really speaks to Gen-Z who is much more open and free when it comes to things like sexuality. 

I remember being in theaters with friends back in 2016 when “Love Simon” featuring Nick Robinson about a teenage boy who comes out of the closet. What I noticed in that theater as I watched and the responses of family and friends in the movie to Robinson’s character coming out was much more fair than what many millennials have trucked through.
