The stars of heart stopper were spotted dancing at Pride in London and giving the middle finger to homophobic protesters.
The young actors from Netflix’s LGBT+ teen series, which was a huge hit for the platform, were present at the Pride celebrations in the capital on Saturday (July 2).
2022 marks the 50th anniversary of Pride in London and is taking place for the first time since the pandemic.
The group – consisting of Joe Locke, Jenny Walser, Kit Connor, Sebastian Croft, Tobie Donovan, Corinna Brown and Kizzy Edgell – wrapped themselves in Pride flags.
The parade was seen clashing with homophobic protesters in a clip that went viral on social media.
As a Pride-goer attempted to snatch an anti-LGBT+ sign, the show’s cast could be seen hopping and dancing to Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.”
Members of the cast, including lead actor Locke, also gave the protesters the middle finger.
The clip was shared by Sky News journalist Scott Beasley, who wrote: “The stars of heart stopper I absolutely love it when anti-LGBT protesters are challenged by a young Pride supporter.
On Friday (July 1), Locke and Connor, along with their co-stars Yasmin Finney and William Gao, appeared in a Pride special from celebrity glasses box.
In it, the cast got emotional watching the coming out scene from the Channel 4 sitcom big boys.
