Netflix’s New YA Series ‘Heartstopper’ Has the Gays in Shambles
Here are the cutest (and gayest) reactions!
Netflix premiered its latest YA series Heartstopper last week and it's looking like a certified hit!
Based on the graphic novel of the same name by Alice Oseman, the LGBTQ+ series centers the budding romance between Charlie (the one out kid at his school) and Nick (a rugby player realizing he might not be as straight as he once thought). Other love stories swirl around them: Darcy and Tara are a bit nervous to come out as a couple while Elle, who recently transitioned and transferred into the girls' school, has to unpack her complicated feelings for a friend.
Not only does the adorable series have a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes and a 9.1 on IMDB, but reactions have been going viral all weekend with tens of thousands of likes and retweets. Heartstopper has been consistently trending on Twitter since its release.
(Light spoilers ahead!) Here are some of
the gayest our favorite reactions and memes below:

\u201cheartstopper is legit a really good show. not only because of the right representation or perfect characters, but the show in itself is just so comforting. it means something to everyone, it impacts people, even if it is in the smallest of ways. and just. thank u alice. really.\u201d— hi i'm wish (@hi i'm wish) 1650975614
