Noah’s post comes more than five months after he came out as gay in a TikTok video.

In the clip, he mouths the words of a viral TikTok audio that say in part, “You know what it never was? That serious.”

Noah added text to the video, writing, “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.'”

He also gave a nod to his “Stranger Things” character Will Byers in the caption, writing, “I guess I’m more similar to Will than I thought.”

Last summer, Noah confirmed fan speculation about Will’s sexuality in the series.

He told Variety, “Obviously, it was hinted at in Season 1: It was always kind of there, but you never really knew, is it just him growing up slower than his friends? Now that he’s gotten older, they made it a very real, obvious thing. Now it’s 100% clear that he is gay and he does love Mike.”
