The star is the hearthrob of the year, and there’s no denying it. The To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and Sierra Burgess Is a Loser star has been dubbed “the internet’s boyfriend,” but he’s actually been stealing hearts for years. However, now that Netflix has catapulted into the spotlight on a whole new level, people are invested in his life like never before. Just take his recently resurfaced photo, for example. In the picture, he’s seen kissing his guy friend – and fans are curious about the story behind it.

Noah once kissed his male friend, Chase Austin, on the lips in a social media post – and it has people wondering if the star is gay or bisexual. But Noah’s intention in posting the photo was to let everyone know that showing your friends love is totally normal – no matter what your gender or sexual identity is.

“Kiss your friend’s faces more, destroy the belief that intimacy must be reserved for monogamous relationships. Be more loving. EMBRACE PLATONIC INTIMACY,” he wrote in the caption. “Embrace vulnerability use Emotionality as a radical tactic against a society which teaches you that emotions are a sign of weakness. Tell more people that you care about them. Hold their hands, tell others you are proud of them. offer support readily. Take care of the people around you.”
