‘Heartstopper’ star Kit Connor says he has been forced to come out as bisexual

"Heartstopper" star Kit Connor came out as bisexual Monday, saying he felt forced to share his sexual orientation after he was accused of queerbaiting by viewers of the popular Netflix show.

In a rare Twitter post, the British actor wrote: “Back for a minute. I’m bi. Congrats for forcing an 18 year old to out himself. I think some of you missed the point of the show. Bye.”

While Connor did not say exactly why he felt forced to come out, he posted the message weeks after he said he was "deleting Twitter" amid accusations of queerbaiting, or benefiting from appearing as queer without claiming the community explicitly. That followed the emergence of photos showing him holding hands with Maia Reficco, his co-star in “A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow.”

“this is a silly silly app. bit bored of it now, deleting twitter :),” Connor said in the September post.

Alice Oseman, the creator of "Heartstopper," which she launched as a webcomic and later as a graphic novels series, shared her support Monday, writing in response to his tweet: “I truly don’t understand how people can watch ‘Heartstopper’ and then gleefully spend their time speculating about sexualities and judging based on stereotypes.

“I hope all those people are embarrassed as F***. Kit you are amazing,” Oseman wrote.

Kizzy Edgell, who plays Darcy Olsson on “Heartstopper,” tweeted late Monday: “I love u kit im sorry this has been so disgustingly rough on you. [You’ve] been treated so unfairly."

Fans also rushed to support Connor, with a Twitter user writing: "HOW can one watch a show like Heartstopper and the take away being that you as a viewer/fan/whatever have the right to know the most private aspects of the actors life? Especially when it comes to this. All love in the world to you Kit."

Another wrote: "So sorry that you’ve literally been forced out before you were ready. Not that you should have ever had to out yourself. People really miss the entire point of this show and the web comics. We love you Kit, sorry you had to do this."

Connor plays Nick Nelson, a high school student who starts to develop feelings for classmate Charlie Spring, played by Joe Locke, as he tries to navigate and understand his sexual identity.

In May, Connor had also appeared to comment on Twitter about questions and comments around his sexual orientation, writing: “Twitter is so funny man. apparently some people on here know my sexuality better than I do…”

In an interview in May, Connor, who was joined by Locke, spoke about the positive impact he hoped "Heartstopper" would have on fans, saying that "to have a show where it’s just very positive, [with] a generally positive outlook on life and being a queer teen, I think that’s an extremely important thing."

"It’s a show that younger audiences can watch with their family and their parents and that can lead to very important conversations between parents and their children," he said. "I think that it just basically brings societies steps closer to normalizing being queer."

He said he had also received positive feedback from fans, particularly over one scene in which Nick comes out to his mother, played by Emmy and Academy Award winner Olivia Colman.

“There was a tweet from a ‘Heartstopper’ fan, and they essentially tweeted out that they used that [scene] to come out to their parents,” Connor said. “That one scene was able to give this person the comfort and the confidence to be truthful to themselves, be honest with their parents and just be unapologetically themselves, and I think that’s a beautiful thing and a real honor, especially for someone who is 18 years old like me.”

Didn’t know who he was. Never heard of the show. Just Googled images, 3 things;

- he needs to stop the center part thing pronto. Don’t know any male it looks good on. Definitely doesn’t look good on him.

- when he gains 5 lbs, it’s all in the face. He’s going to have to manage his weight closely as he ages. Misfortune of having a giant fucking face I guess.

- he needs to grow some balls quickly. His bitchy little tweet was a terrible way to introduce himself to 99% of the public who never heard of him. Grow up you little twat.

Bisexual men exist and they're in greater number than gays. You'd know that if you spend time with men and not surrounded by fag hags. The best decision of my life was to start dating bisexual men, once I did I never had to deal with drama and this type of self aggrandizing behavior again. My last boyfriend and I were together for almost 6 years a longer relationship than any of my gay relationships. Your jealousy of bi men is just petty.

It's easy to find out if your boyfriend is bisexual. If he gets hard looking at women or their anatomy and also looking at you, he is. You'd know that if you spent any time with men instead of living coddled by your frau hags. You have to be a woman, because any man will tell you that, that's how penises work and how we figure out we're not attracted to you.

He’s been accused of queerbating for months. His current relationship with Maia Reficco isn’t being actively hidden, which have amplified the queerbating allegations. If he came out as straight, fans would be fine with him being an ally. But he’s refused to label his sexuality in countless interviews. Every single interview since HS came out has included him talking about not wanting to publicly label his sexuality and hinting he was in the queer community.

Recently the queerbating accusers had started a hashtag trying to get him fired. Most celebrities would have been able to ignore it, but Kit’s thrown several online tantrums before this one that involved him actually admitting he’s bi. This was clearly a very sensitive subject for him.

He’s a bi teenager who wants to become a big celebrity. Pretending to be straight would have been the best move for his career. But his breakout role was gay love story.

Not to indulge in perpetually online verbiage, but it's fucking bizarre how some people keep wanting to "victim blame" and put the blame squarely on Kit here. He turned 18 less than a year ago, blew up overnight, and has been dealing with incessant claims that he's taking advantage of the community he's a part of for half a year. You're expecting someone who isn't even out of his teens to have dealt with this situation in a perfect way. That's delusional. He shouldn't have been dealing with hashtag attempts to get him fired in the first place, or people stalking him under Instagram posts to keep harassing him. NOBODY should have to deal with that shit. Joe Locke shouldn't have to deal with people calling him ugly every day. Sebastian Croft shouldn't have to deal with being accused of excusing sexual assault.

Queerbaiting is unacceptable, appearing in a show and portraying a gay character whether he's gay in his personal life is perfectly fine and does NOT require any form of affirmation as a member of that community.

From Al Pacino to Harry Hamlin and Michael Ontkean to Gyllenhaal and Ledger, I am grateful to actors who were willing to take on gay roles at the risk of permanently damaging their careers. I don't care whether any of them are gay or straight.

Hardly. You really need to learn your history. It is only a very recent phenomenon - much of it AFTER Brokeback itself - that taking on such roles were considered Oscar bait.

Previously, most actors were advised against taking gay roles. Only a handful of roles, like Hanks in Philadelphia and William Hurt in Kiss of the Spider Woman, were above such considerations.

And frankly, I wish Hanks would reconsider never taking a gay role again. Some movies would not be made without someone of his star caliber attached, not to mention he's a good actor and would likely act the part very well. If Hanks being attached to an important movie about a gay man gets it made, I'm all for it.

I agree with R140, he never said gay and good are mutually exclusive. It’s the old saying “I don’t want the best woman for the job, I want the best person.” Doesn’t mean it’s not a woman. I don’t want actors cast in anything I watch because of their identity off-screen. I just want good stories and good acting.

Did you two really watch this series? Can I assume neither of you is 16? This is a gay coming-of-age story (based on a book) specifically geared to those coming of age. I realize adults [italics]can[/italic] watch and enjoy it, maybe it’s nostalgic for you. But [italic]why[/italic] would you watch this and know whether or not this Kit girl can act?

Kit is kind of at fault, because he fed into his fans' expectations, though this may have been the series author's fault. However, it's heartbreaking that fans were trying to get him fired - fandom culture on Twitter is really toxic. May this be an example for future would-be queerbaiters; be upfront about who you are. Being a straight playing gay on telly is unpopular, but pretending you're queer for media will give you 10 times the headache in the near future.

In real life, Nick and Charlie would be humping each other and masturbating one another and would have a hard time hiding their boners at school when they see one another.

If you are prepared for your partner to suddenly feel that he or she wants to try something new for a night or maybe for a year then I guess it will work for you. I'm 100% gay so I can't speak from any understanding of bisexual attraction. I used to think that claiming to be bisexual was simply a stepping stone on the way to announcing that you are gay. Over the years I realize that there are people who have attraction for both sexes and it's legitimate and they really have those feelings.

He and Maia seem to be back and active again on each other’s instas and Maia posted new/old photo of Kit yesterday.

Kit seems to be very protective of his friends and loved ones.

I remember him tweeting fans to lay off Sof after she got a lot of online hate.

Wouldn't be surprised if he came out after the trolls went after Maia. I can see that being the final straw for him.

Maybe he could deal with the accusations when the hate was directed to him only, but probably couldn't take it when it was directed to people he cares about.

People had been piling in on Maia for ages though, and it didn’t stop her from doing things like that interview, where she/kit must have known it would blow up and turn into a big thing around queerbaiting, or them flirting online etc.

I think it was the photos of them in their Paris hotel by that stalker that was the tipping point for him.

Interesting that in the the GQ article which was done weeks before the twitter event Kit includes himself in the LGBT community so I suppose he thought there was nothing to lose anyway by doing what he did. He just put a label on it.

I don't really get the whole controversy. Queer is an acceptable identity amongst the main demographic for Heartstopper. Label yourself as queer and you're "in". No need to be seen holding hands, or making out, with a guy. Just wear a skirt, paint your finger nails, put on some red lipstick, wear dangly earrings and take out your girlfriend on dates in public. And I don't mean that in a disparaging manner. Queer and expressing queerness is very acceptable for younger viewers. No need to come out as gay or bi if you are not.

R237 but Kit is bi, and masculine. He didn’t want to paint his nails, put on some lipstick, and wear dangly earrings. He also never publicly said he was “queer” prior to coming out as bi. He always said that he didn’t want to label himself or discuss his sexuality publicly.

The fangirls (in general, not just his) have found a way around this - they insist that real people can't queerbait.

He pinged for a lot of people before he even came out and acts fairly fruity. The people speculating that he came out to be left alone are morons and not living in reality. He was struggling with it for a while given his tumultuous relationship with Twitter and he came out in a pretty fraught way. Think there's a decent chance he'd date a man down the road if he hasn't already. When talking about previous relationships, he played the pronoun game a lot.

He didn't ping at all to me, which is why I thought he was straight. Just the way he talked and moved, his mannerisms, down to his hobbies and friend group...it all screamed straight.

It wasn't until he started dropping deliberate hints that he wasn't straight that I finally considered the possibility he might not be--only because Kit was being so deliberate about it.

I still think he's more attracted to women and would be surprised if he ever openly dated a guy. I would be super glad if he proved me wrong though.

Don't remember all of the hints but the ones that come to mind are when he referred to himself as part of the LGBTQ+ community in a couple of interviews, spoke about cisheterosexual television viewers as "they," liked the tweet below (and his behavior in general on Twitter), signed a book with Nick's "I'm bisexual" line. He's also (openly) much more into male celebrities than female ones. He talks about his "fat crush" on Hugh Grant all the time, likes all of Harry Styles's Instagram posts, fawns over Paul Mescal. People that have met him have also said he pings. The one time a sighting of him was submitted to DeuxMoi it was at Pride and the person assumed he was with a boyfriend, so he must also be pretty affectionate with men at the very least.

But he's never been fat, even when he was overdoing the gym and bulking up too much.

So...HS is close to wrapping on S2...and I don't think any fans have spotted the cast filming at the beach. I wonder if this means we won't be seeing the beach scene from the comics this season?

I assuming (could be wrong) that the "I love you" scene will close out S2 on a high note, but the beach scene precedes that scene.

So, if that's the case, the beach scene might be replaced with another or omitted entirely, which would suck.

R308 Yes, the long hair really frames his face very well. It makes his face seem less round and more defined. However, I don't think Kit has enough hair to ever achieve a hairstyle like that. Bash does, but not Kit.

R301 I think that's only natural. He's the co-lead in the show and plays a character who is damn near perfect in his sensitivity and kindness. And Kit played him to the hilt. So, of course people are going to fixate on him specifically. I personally think Kit isn't particularly super attractive. In any other context, I'd say he's overall average to good-looking, but never would clock him as hot or look twice if I walked past him on the street. Just keeping it real. But when viewing him through the context of Nick, his attractiveness skyrockets. I think that's the case for a lot of people, even if they don't want to admit it. We hear these stories from the cast and others who know Kit, saying what a kind person he is, and naturally people conflate that and think he's as pure as Nick Nelson. The attraction isn't ultimately coming from his looks. It's the personality of Nick Nelson people are imbuing onto him. Again, he's not ugly at all, but if Kit had ended up playing Ben instead of Nick in HS, I guarantee no one would find him nearly as interesting or attractive as they do now.

I honestly don't think Kit had any real intention to play Charlie.

To me, it sounds like he came in late to the audition process. Casting for Nick was already closed, but Charlie's casting call was still open. I think he auditioned as a means to get his name and face in front of the casting agents, hoping that, once they saw him act, they would offer him a role in the show (maybe Nick, maybe Ben, maybe Harry)--and that's exactly what happened.

Kit said once they saw him, they immediately threw his name into consideration for Nick pretty quickly. I think auditioning for Charlie was strictly strategic to get his foot in the door, so to speak, not because he realistically thought hw was suited to play Charlie.

The kid came out at 18, just as his acting career is starting to take off. I'd say he's pretty brave if you ask me.

Many talented actors before him in similar situations chose to stay closeted for their careers and not be counted. Whatever his reasons, he chose a different path, and that's so important if we're ever going to chip away at the systemic homophobia that's still present in the industry.

Having actors, like Kit and Joe, who are openly out and proud while they are succeeding is incredibly important to help pave the way for others to do the same.

There was some discussion on the HS thread about a recent interview Maia did where she (indirectly) implied her relationship with Kit was casual.

So, I suppose this means they are each other's booty calls when they happen to be on the same continent?

It's weird. Before Kit's coming out, I fully believed he and Maia were in a relationship. Now that he came out, and all this "casual" talk, I'm starting to feel more that this might be a PR thing.

That is really really mature for an 18 year old guy to be cool with his gf hooking up with other guys while he's not around, which is the majority of the time.

Or are Gen Z'ers just so much more mature in handling open relationships at 18 than earlier generations?

Well, maybe she isn't. I just assumed casual implied open relationship--i.e, hooking up with other people.

Casual doesn't seem to imply a committed, monogamous relationship to me.

Maybe they are open in the sense she can hook up with girls, and he can hook up with guys?

In any case, if casual means open relationship...that's still very emotionally mature for an 18 year old to handle, I gotta say.

by Anonymousreply 373November 25, 2022 1:46 AM

Their relationship being PR would make absolutely zero sense. She wouldn't be so transparent about it being casual if it was PR, they would be working to sell the fairy tale. Instead they've both been open about the casualness of it and about the negative ramifications of being seen together (her receiving death threats, him being called a queerbaiter).

R372 No, she didn't say she's hooking up with other guys. And for clarity's sake, they're both bi and she's been in relationships with women before.

Also possible it legitimately just started as a hookup as they were aware they’re in different continents, caught feelings but were still aware of the logistics, and decided to try something open and to stay on good terms.

by Anonymousreply 378November 25, 2022 2:03 AM

R377 That's what I was thinking...

And PR isn't always about selling a fairy tale narrative. Sometimes it's simply a way to make one party seem desirable and in-demand.

Kit casually hooking up with a hot actress makes him look good as a leading man, helps remind his fanbase (and casting agents) that he's into chicks even though he's come out as bi, etc.

For Maia, she gets her name linked up with the hottest young actor right now, gets her name our in the press, etc. I never head of her and anything she was in until she hooked up with Kit.

And, of course, it'll drum up a lot of publicity for their movie when they begin doing press for it.

There's a lot of positives to be gained for them both being in a PR relationship.

I think R378 probably has the Occam's razor explanation, but what fun would this board be if we always went with that. lol

Has Kit torpedoed the PR benefits by coming out?

by Anonymousreply 380November 25, 2022 2:14 AM

R380 I don't think so. If anything, it helps, sorry to say. Being seen and in a relationship with a woman as an open Bi actor is only going to help Kit.

It establishes several things:

1. That he's not gay (which, again sad to say, is still a huge stigma for actors vying for leading male roles in Hollywood).

2. All his fangirls can still daydream and fantasize that someday he might hook up with them (they can't do that if Kit was gay or dating a man). This keeps his teenage heartthrob status intact.

3. Casting agents see him as straight passing and capable of being cast in leading hetero roles (not as easy to do if you're dating a men publicly).

4. Maia is hot. Never a bad thing to be dating a hot actress when you're the current "IT" guy.

This is all a very cynical reading of things, of course. Maybe they truly dig each other in a romantic way. I'm just not as convinced as I was before.

Oh well. There's no major HS or Kit news lately, so just idly gossiping over here.

R380 agree with R381 and to add to it - a lot of the conversation about his coming out has not just been “don’t force people out” but also “bi people are valid and don’t need to prove it through same sex relationships”. Being with Maia for that adds another layer as they’re both bi.

People exaggerating what she said. Doesn't seem like the most serious relationship in the world, but she wasn't talking about running around fucking everything while dating Kit. She didn't seem all that comfortable talking about it, but did mention she had someone she liked. They are young and live thousands of miles apart. It's pretty realistic they keep it casual. Her career was doing just fine pre-Kit. She's actually the lead in their movie and now she's getting death threats. Not exactly sure she's gaining a whole lot.

And I like Kit, but calling him "the hottest young actor right now" is a bit of a stretch.

It's going to be pretty crazy if Kit or Joe win an Emmy for HS.

I think, of the two, Kit had the meatier material to work with in season 1, so I think he'll probably win it. That coming out scene with Olivia Coleman was pretty amazing. Pretty hard to top that.

Joe will have more emotional material to work with in the coming seasons. However, I sort of wish Joe would end up winning it, just to top off his Cinderella story. In just a year, he went from obscure nobody, to a lead in a hit Netflix show, awarded GQ man of the year, cast in the Marvel franchise, and was nominated (and might potentially win) an Emmy. What a crazy success story.

I think it’s likely Loretta too but I’m not 100% sold because it’s a vote by a peer panel that was required to view all of the submissions, not a vote from the entire membership, so a name check seems less guaranteed. It’s a brand new show, so it’s harder to figure out how these things will go.

R409 agreed - my guess is there are only so many events they could reasonably take off time for. attitude is the major gay publication; GQ and the NTAs were both huge for them. Gay Times is more minor but still an LGBTQ publication that supported the show since day 1; so it’s smart to still acknowledge it and have some cast go to give a speech/a thank you, but no need to have it be Kit and Joe. Plus kill 2 birds with 1 stone and also give minor cast a chance to attend - a lot of fans thought (maybe fairly) that it sucked Yaz and Will but not kizzy and Cori got to go to attitude.

R454 babe they were asked to do that, that's how promos work, calm down, they are still their natural selves whenever they're at a restaurant eating their hearts out, or on set teasing each other. They're good friends that like to take piss out of each other, like Kit said.

You guys are fucking weird. The footage from the shoot between poses is clearly of Kit and Joe shooting the shit as themselves, they didn't go method for it.
