Best Netflix show I’ve watched in a while!

I loved this show and am currently watching it for the 3rd time! All the characters are so well made and the show touches upon numerous things that occur to people of the LGBTQ+ community.

Comfort show

This is such a great coming-of-age show, good representation, great cast, and heart-felt. So much diversity, such a comfort show. Really hoping for a season 2!!

AMAZING SHOW!! :))

Heartstopper is such an amazing show!!!!!! It has good characters, and it is SO INSPIRING, especially to kids out there that are hiding there sexuality from their parents or peers. There's a few scenes where characters come out, and it makes other people that watch it feel more comfortable with who they are or maybe even comfortable enough to come out to their parents. :) This show is definitely okay for kids 11+, there's no sexual content, just a few kissing scenes. But kids 11+ would 100% enjoy this show!! :D

Beautiful piece of LGBTQ media

This was a wonderfully directed, acted, and in general show. A trans woman of color, lots of characters who aren’t just white and straight, and diversity bring this movie together. Recommended watch for sure.

I LOVE IT SO MUCH! POSITIVE REPRESENTATION! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

OMG OMG OMG!!!! I LOVE THIS SO MUCH! It is the exact embodiment of feel good. It has a beautiful romance mixed with a meaningful plot and a TON of diverse characters and actors! This is such a great show that it’ll make you cry and make your heart smile at the same time. I enjoyed this so much I watched it in two days, although I don’t recommend binge watching it because when you are done you will be dying for more. I watched it a few days ago and I already want to re watch it. Things to watch out for: Language: bullies use words such as the fa word (you might want to speak to your kids on why you should never use it and about homophobia) Sexy stuff: heavy kissing that could make some people uncomfortable

I LOVE THIS TV SHOW!!!

I. AM. IN. LOVE. WITH. THIS. SHOW. It is such a sweet romance tv show. And there little to no swearing. The most sexual thing in this show is kissing and there is no drinking. It is a innocent tv show overall. As long as you are ok with LGBTQ+ then it is amazing!!!!!!

Heartwarming, wholesome show has positive LGBTQ+ representations

Overall: Heartstopper is a super cute, heartwarming show with positive messages, role models, and diverse representations. It’s very clean as well, with hardly any iffy stuff. The story is centered around a gay couple with multiple LGBTQ+ side characters—all teenagers—so if parents want to introduce their kids to the idea of LGBTQ+ and/or have some conversations about it, Heartstopper is a clean, wholesome way to go. I recommend it to all and any tweens, teens, and adults—it’s entertaining, feel-good, adorable, and a comfort show. ___________________________________________________ Violence: A boy’s ex-boyfriend aggressively shoves him against a wall and kisses him, while the boy asks him stop. (It doesn’t last long before someone intervenes). Characters play rugby and get tackled/tackle opponents in games, one boy gets a bloody nose from a tackle. One school fight between two teen boys. One punch and some shoving as a boy defends his boyfriend. ___________________________________________________ Sex: Flirting and kissing, both opposite- and same-sex (but mostly same-sex). ___________________________________________________ Language: occasional use of mild words such as “piss”, “ass”, “damn.” Some insults. Characters are made fun of for being gay/LGBTQ+. ___________________________________________________ Drinking/Drugs/Smoking: A teen throws a birthday party, some teens hold plastic cups but we don’t see what they’re drinking and no one acts drunk. ___________________________________________________ Positive Messages/Role Models/Representations: Themes of love, friendship, courage, being yourself, standing up for yourself and others, etc. Don’t let what other people think and say stop you from being who you are. Many positive role models—teens, teachers, parents, friends, male and female, straight and LGBTQ+. The only negative role models are bullies and are clearly portrayed as so. Lots of diversity—although the main characters are white boys, there are several supporting characters of different skin colors and ethnicities. Several LGBTQ+ characters, including the protagonists. ___________________________________________________

Adorable and Great Representation!!

This show was adorable!! I loved the character, and Charlie was so adorably awkward, and I loved Nick! There is also some great reputation, and it was so refreshing. There is some kissing, nothing too heavy, and there is use of a homophobic word, and there is some language, but this was incredible. Definitely a series I could watch over and over again.
