Degrassi: Next Class

[Spoiler Alert] Degrassi Next Class Character Comes Out As Genderfluid In Season 4



Degrassi: Next Class has a history of grappling with real-world, serious topics as they apply to today’s teens, from crippling depression to sexuality to drug addiction.

Season four, which debuts on Netflix July 7, is no different, and in a new clip, it deals with an entirely new topic for the show.

In a new Entertainment Weekly clip, Yael (Jamie Bloch) tells Lola (Amanda Arcuri) that they have been feeling like they don’t identify as a girl or a boy.

“I don’t feel like a girl, or what everyone thinks is a girl,” Yael explains, “I don’t like makeup or stuff like you do. I really, really hate my boobs… But I’m definitely not a boy either.”

Lola responds in a totally positive way, encouraging her friend to consider the concept of genderfluidity, and showing Yael a gender queer vlogger as an example.

“They feel like they’re between a boy or girl. Or both. Or neither,” explains Lola. “If being a boy or girl is made up, then you can make whatever you want.”
