Heartstopper Cast Drowns out Anti-Lgbtq Protesters at London Pride

During London Pride, the cast of the Netflix series trolled anti-LGBTQ protesters with an impromptu Whitney Houston dance party. The footage has gone viral.

Joe Locke (who plays Charlie Spring) and Sebastian Croft (Ben Hope) can be seen dancing to “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)” using rainbow flag capes to block the protesters on the other side of the barricade.

One of whom was involved in a tug-of-war with another parade-goer over a flag in the video, which has since garnered 9.3 million views.

Tobie Donovan as Isaac Henderson, Corinna Brown as Tara Jones, Kizzy Edgell as Kissy Olsson, Jenny Walser as Tori Spring, and Kit Connor as Nick Nelson could all be seen dancing and flashing a middle finger or two to the demonstrators in the background.

Connor, an 18-year-old Twitter user, posted the video, writing: “In case you were under the impression that it was ‘Kit Connor and the rest of the cast,’ please note that it was actually @joelocke03 and @SebastianCroft who were in the spotlight. Don’t forget to give them some props for pulling off something so impressive!”

Locke, 18, responded with the words “It was all of us.” It was “Had to perform my job correctly” in another tweet, in which he shared the video on his own account.

As Charlie Spring in Heartstopper, a film based on Alice Osman’s graphic novel of the same name, Locke was chosen from 10,000 young performers.

With Nick Nelson, a popular rugby player who sits next to him at school in this British coming-of-age series, Charlie, who was recently outed, falls head over heels.

For its portrayal of the LGBTQ+ community, the show also has a talented young cast as Charlie’s buddies. Rotten Tomatoes has given the Netflix film Heartstopper a perfect score since its premiere in April.

Netflix has since picked up the show for a third season. Netflix has released the first season of the show.
