Heartstopper- Celebrating Queer Joy and Pride Month

Boy meets Boy. Blue meets Yellow.
I love the animations. I wish I could erase Heartstopper from my memory and watch it for the first time again.

What Is Heartstopper?

L to R: Charlie Spring (Joe Locke) and Nick Nelson (Kit Connor)
Cinematic bliss if I say so myself.
Heartstopper captures the beauty of friendship so well.
Elle is one of my favorite characters. I’m so happy Yasmin Finney will be in Dr. Who, she is so talented!

Why We Need More (Queer) Optimism?

Hi will have a completely new meaning for you after watching this.
Tao (Will Gao) and Elle (Yasmin Finney) will deliver us more cuteness in second season.
Alice Oseman’s perfect cameo in Heartstopper.

Graphic Novels vs. The Netflix Series

An iconic scene. Nick seeing the sheer joy of queer happiness. Tara (Corinna Brown) and Darcy (Kizzy Edgell) kissing.
The meddling gays in their element.❤
Ok but that teardrop ruined me. I really hated him until that moment. Sebastian Croft plays Ben Hope.
I couldn’t capture it but Harry (Cormac Hyde-Corrin) looks genuinely hurt when Nick says he deosn’t like him.

Will Adults Enjoy Heartstopper?

What a great message encouraging self love and empowerment.
We love a book nerd. And we love Isaac (Tobie Donovan).
Love this scene which clears the air on being an ally. :P Rhea Norwood is so cute as Imogen.

Happy Pride Month!

Olivia Fucking Colman as Nick’s mom! I can’t wait to see her in S2 and S3.
Elle and Tao ❤ Can’t wait to see them finally telling each other how they feel!

Adieu For Now!

Me rewatching Heartstopper every time I get stressed.
Tao as the token straight friend who tortures friends with his list of movies is so me!
I think this is what being an ally means. Watch James Acaster’s Netflix special “Repertoire” on Netflix.
Honestly! So talented!
