Stranger Things fans have long suspected that his character was intended to be gay, based on hints that he was infatuated with the Finn Mike Wheeler character.
Last year, Noah confirmed the fan theory of varietyeven as it became more apparent in later seasons.
It was obviously hinted at in Season 1 – he was always kind of there, but you never know, is he just growing up slower than his friends? Now that he’s older, they’ve made it something very real and obvious.
Now it’s 100 percent clear that he’s gay and that he loves Mike. But before, it was a slow arc.

Laugh: Back in January, Noah came out as gay in a TikTok video, though he joked that the news didn’t come as a surprise to his loved ones.
In an interview with GQ, Finn said he and Noh were close enough to be like family after years of shooting Stranger Things together.
This closeness means that the two don’t necessarily need to chat every day to still be an important part of each other’s lives.
“We’re not into everyday text vibes in any way,” he said, pausing as he searched for the right way to express himself, “not because…it’s like…”.
Do you text your cousins every day? Mostly not. They are our family, he began to explain. We’ll talk on each other’s birthdays. We’ll talk from time to time. But the same way the family does, if you need anything, they are right there.
“Everyone does their own tasks in real life,” Finn added, contrasting the actors’ need to make a name for themselves with the breakup of the friend group in Stranger Things.
Finn also had kind words from veteran actor Winona Ryder, who plays Noah’s mother on the series and is a staple in the lives of the main cast.
Finn joked that it was “one of the funniest texts ever, because she’ll text you and then she’ll text you back and then you’ll never text her again.”
Anybody will text you, saying something like, “Oh, have you ever seen that movie?” And I’ll say, “No, I don’t have. How are you?” Then he said laughing.

But it was also a vessel of important cultural knowledge.
Finn notes that she’s dated Dave Grohl and MCA from the Beastie Boys, and all those people. I could literally ask her what it was like knowing Kurt Cobain, and she told me everything. It’s madness.’
Nowadays, though, Wynonna lives a reserved life and mostly avoids the spotlight, despite being on one of the most popular TV shows right now.
She’s also pretty cool, because she only lives with her partner in her own home. Finn added: It doesn’t come out. She is a homebody and doesn’t care to be related either. She just wants to be fulfilled.
