Noah Schnapp celebrated Pride Month in New York City, the birthplace of the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement.

Noah attended his first pride march with his parents, Mitchell and Karine Schnapp, and his friends.

On Instagram, the Stranger Things star shared photos of himself wearing rainbow-colored wristbands, a headband, and a shirt that said "Straight Outta the Closet." 

He can be seen dancing in the fountain in Washington Square Park with throngs of people and giving his mom a smooch on the cheek.

In January 2023, the actor came out by releasing a TikTok video of him lipsyncing to the audio with the words, "You know what it never was? That serious. It was never that serious. Quite frankly, will never be that serious." 

In the video, Schnapp wrote, "When I finally told my friends and family I was gay after being scared in the closet for 18 years and all they said was 'we know',” while his caption said: “I guess I’m more similar to will than I thought.”  

Fellow Stranger Things actors David Harbour and Finn Wolfhard have shown support for Noah after his announcement. 

"I'm always happy for people that are true to themselves and come out," David told E! News.  

Finn also had good words for Noah as he mentioned that he was “really proud” of him and that he had a “big smile on my face” when he saw the TikTok video during an interview with GQ.
