I don't remember seeing anything about this series here, so I thought I would make a comment.

Heartstopper , by Alice Oseman, started out as a web comic. It was sufficiently popular that the author was able to get it published as a comic book, which now has four volumes.

It was picked up by Netflix, who have done a video series based on the comics, which has got some pretty good reviews.

The story is a classic 'boy meets boy', both pupils at an English Grammar school. There are also other gay and trans characters.

In a short space of time I have got to be fond of the characters! <grin>

Have you noticed the broad similarity between the main actors in Young Royals and in Heartstopper?  Except the Young Royals prince has awful acne

He does indeed. Pretty sure I could overlook that though. He's still a cutie. 😁

FYI in case you haven't heard, season 2 is now in production, and there is a season 3 planned.
