‘Stranger Things’ Stars Noah Schnapp and Millie Bobby Brown on Will’s Sexuality: ‘It’s Up to the Audience’s Interpretation’

It's quite surprising that Season 4 of “Stranger Things” has any time to explore quiet moments of personal growth among 16 main characters

at least a dozen new characters, and five major locations — including a prison in Soviet-era Russia and a converted underground missile silo somewhere in the American West.  

Over the course of the show, anyone following Will Byers' ( Noah Schnapp's)  

journey has noticed that he has struggled to connect with his old Dungeons and Dragons buddies for reasons that don't seem to have much to do with being captured by a demogorgon from another dimension..

Will seems to be struggling with coming out as gay.

Season 4 has only strengthened that impression. Will ( Millie Bobby Brown) and Eleven ( Millie Bobby Brown) have to give a presentation at their new California high school about a hero they admire 

Will chooses Alan Turing, the gay mathematician who was prosecuted in the 1950s for his sexuality and sentenced You will undergo chemical castration.  

A girl who shows interest in Will also physically repels him. In episode 2, Will is heartbroken when Mike (Finn Wolfhard)  

visits from Hawkins over spring break and is so indifferent to him in favor of his girlfriend, Eleven.

Will offers insights for anyone who may be struggling to work up the courage to come out to a best friend in Episode 4, 

when Mike confides in him that he wishes he'd expressed his feelings for Eleven more clearly to her.

"Sometimes, it's scary to open up so much, especially to people you care about," Will says. The truth may not be to their liking. What if that's the case? “.”
