Heartstopper is the most positive and progressive representation for all under the LGBTQ+ Umbrella. It first originated from Alice Oseman’s graphic novels “Heartstopper” where we first meet the main characters Nick Nelson and Charlie Spring, who are two unlikely friends. Charlie Spring is a 15-year-old gay boy who was outed and severely bullied in Year 9 and Nick Nelson, who is 16 years old, is the school’s star rugby player. Throughout this novel, we witness Charlie’s attraction for Nick grow and Nick’s realisation of his bisexual identity despite his popularity status and being surrounded by casual homophobia. 
It has been converted into an TV series with hopes of more seasons and I would love for a disabled queer character to be featured within this show. 
I, myself am a disabled person who identities as queer as well as being nonbinary. There hasn't been many positive representation for disabled people as often the characters are either played by abled bodied actors or have ableist writing. Heartstopper would absolutely be the place for this type of diverse lgbt representation to be featured. 
Disabled people need to see more positive and realistic representation and people have been sharing their support for an disabled character who is played by an disabled person to be featured within the show on twitter and on TikTok.
