Draped in a Pride flag, Joe Locke, who plays the curly-haired protagonist Charlie Spring, and Kit Connor, who plays rugby hunk Nick Nelson, held hands and waved to the crowd. Fans of the show lost it — in person and online.
Joe and Kit were joined in the parade by Sebastian Croft (Ben Hope), Corinna Brown (Tara Jones), Tobie Donovan (Isaac Henderson), Kizzy Edgell (Darcy Olsson), and Jenny Walser (Tori Spring).
When the group came across anti-LGBTQ+ counter-protesters, the actors drowned out their chants by singing Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody and gave the middle finger while jumping up and down.
Joe and Kit posted proudly about the interaction on Twitter.
The lovable show has already been picked up for a second season, likely to release in 2023.
