As a same-sex enthusiast, Noah Schnapp has opened up about his sexual identity to the public. In an interview with The Times, Schnapp said he felt “overjoyed and liberated” after admitting to the world that he was gay.
Schnapp, known for his role as Will Byers on the Netflix series “Stranger Things”, said he felt pressured for years to hide his sexual identity, but finally felt free after talking to his parents and friends about it.
“I felt like I had to hide a part of myself for years, and I finally feel free after speaking about this,” Schnapp told The Times. “I feel so happy and feel free after telling this to the world.”
Coming out as a gay person can be a difficult experience for many people, especially in an environment that is not welcoming or supportive. However, Schnapp said he felt supported by his family and friends after coming out of his sexual identity.
“I feel very lucky because I have very supportive parents and friends who support me,” she said. “I feel like I can be myself without feeling pressured or isolated.”
Schnapp hopes that by coming out as gay, he can serve as an inspiration to others who may feel uncomfortable with their sexual identity.
“I hope that by expressing this to the world, I can serve as an inspiration to others who may feel uncomfortable with their sexual identity,” she said. “I want other people to know that they are not alone and that there are other people out there who feel like they do.”
By taking the big step and acknowledging his sexual identity, Schnapp has set an example of courage and compassion for people.
