The much-awaited fourth season of Stranger Things has arrived on Netflix and the question everyone is asking is, did they just confirm Will Byers is gay?
A lot of fans who have suspected Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) is gay feel like the latest season of Stranger Things has almost confirmed it.
In Season 4, viewers seem to be getting even more hints that Will has a crush on his best friend, Mike. At the start when we saw Will, Eleven is writing a letter to Mike and says that Will is painting a lot and that maybe it was for a girl he likes. But we see Will taking the painting everywhere he goes with Mike. Another hint that points to Will being gay is the science project we see him carrying in episode one. Will’s project is on Alan Turing, the mathematician who was prosecuted by the British court for being gay.

Also in the fifth episode, Will tells Mike about how hard it can be to speak your truth, saying, “Sometimes I think it’s scary to just open up like that. To say how you really feel. Especially to people, you care about the most. Because what if… what if they don’t like the truth?
So, is Will Byers gay? Well, the fans on social media do think so. Check out some of the reactions.
