For The New York Times, Kit Connor and Joe Locke talk about Heartstopper, his futures and Joe shares how he came out to friends and family! 🍂📲

Joe shared:

“I think coming out is stupid, that it’s still a thing that people have to do.

I had just told my mum, and I was on top of the world. I quickly realized I was ready to tell my mum but I was not ready to tell the world. So I quickly deleted it and said my Instagram had been hacked. I went back in the closet for three years. I retold all my friends and they’re like, ‘Yeah, you told us two years ago.’

Twelve-year-old me would be very proud, and terrified.”

We’re happy he’s happy now!
