Heartstopper, released on 22nd April 2022, is an LGBTQ+drama that presents the friendship and love between teens Charlie and Nick. It is a story taking place in Durham Grammar High School, where a gay schoolboy named Charlie falls in love with classmate Nick when he is assigned to sit next to him.
It also explores the love bidding between Tao, Elle, Tara and Darcy. The story and comic deal with the LGBTQ+ community; which makes it more relevant because it isa form of normalizing the issue and making people comfortable about it but rather making it, and such stories or issues need to be put into the limelight for all to get familiarized about it.
