'Stranger Things' Actor, Noah Schnapp, Weighs in on Will Byers Being Gay

“A good book, or a good show leaves a lot of unanswered questions but makes you think.”

Noah Schnapp took to Instagram to voice some thoughts about the speculation surrounding Will Byers’ sexuality. Schnapp responded to a Twitter screenshot with a well thought-out statement:

“For me, Will being gay or not is besides the point. Stranger Things is a show about a bunch of kids who are outsiders and find each other because they have been bullied in some way or are different. Does being sensitive, or a loner, or a teenager who likes photography, or a girl with red hair and big glasses, make you gay? I’m only 12 but I do know we all relate to being different.”

In short, Will Byers being gay is inconsequential. What’s more important is that the audience is challenged to think – “A good book, or a good show leaves a lot of unanswered questions but makes you think.”

He may only be 12-years-old but Noah Schnapp delivered the wisdom that adults may not possess.

So I thought it would be time to jump into the conversation. I’ve been reading stuff for a while. I think everyone here is missing the point. An author called Gary Schmidt came to speak at our school this week and he said that good stories aren’t supposed to leave you with answers because then you never question yourself and you forget about it. A good book, or a good show leaves a lot of unanswered questions but makes you think. Which is what you are all doing. For me, Will being gay or not is besides the point. Stranger Things is a show about a bunch of kids who are outsiders and find each other because they have been bullied in some way or are different. Does being sensitive, or a loner, or a teenager who likes photography, or a girl with red hair and big glasses, make you gay? I’m only 12 but I do know we all relate to being different. And that’s why I think the Duffers wrote the show the way they did. So you can ask all these questions. I hope the real answer never comes out! #dufferbrothers ❤️❤️
