Joe Locke, Kit Connor, Corinna Brown and Kizzy Edgell are here to inspire a whole new generation of LGBTQ+ youth. All four stars can be seen in Netflix’s highly-anticipated queer teen romance, Heartstopper, based on Alice Oseman’s championed webcomic and graphic novel of the same name.

Following the love story between the openly gay overthinker Charlie Spring (Joe) and buoyant rugby player Nick Nelson (Connor), the series is a light and joyous watch featuring little in the way of trauma and conflict, and that’s exactly what young queer people coming to terms with their sexuality or gender identity need to see.

Joe, who makes his acting debut with the series, praises Heartstopper’s relentless optimism and enchanting depiction of the queer experience. “The elements of bullying and of sexual assault are in [Heartstopper], but it’s a miniscule part of a really happy story, which I think is really important to show younger, especially queer kids, that your life isn’t going to be just bullying,” he tells GAY TIMES.
