Over the weekend, the cast of Netflix’s Hearstopper gave us one more reason to fall even more in love with them.

Series regulars Joe Locke, Kit Connor, Jenny Walser, Sebastian Croft, Tobie Donovan, Corinna Brown, and Kizzy Edgell attended the London Pride March on Saturday, July 2, draped in Pride flags and radiating joy.

At one point during the parade, the cast and other marchers faced off with anti-LGBTQ+ protestors, who stood behind a police barricade along the sidelines of the parade route. Committed to keeping spirits up and shutting out hate, Joe and Sebastian started dancing and singing along to Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” in front of the protestors. As they gleefully jumped around, Joe and Sebastian flipped the protestors off and waved their Pride flags in the air.

Kit captured the moment on video, and made it clear on his Twitter account that Joe and Sebastian were the leaders behind the movement.

“uhhh I was videoing and screaming at them but please don’t be mistaken, it wasn’t ’Kit Connor and the rest of the cast’, it was @joelocke03 and @SebastianCroft front and centre. Please give them the credit for doing something so powerful,” he wrote.

“Had to do my job properly 🤷♀️,” Joe penned in a separate tweet, while Sebastian wrote, “Love always wins.”

Other photos and videos from the parade show the cast waving to crowds and posing with fans, while Joe and Kit walked arm in arm and held hands. And at one point, Kit carried Joe on his back.
