One of the main characters in ‘Sex Education’ is Eric Effiong, the migrant gay Black kid from Nigeria. The character is played by Ncuti Gatwa. Eric is open about his sexual orientation, but he faces bullying and harassment, which throws him off. However, he regains his identity and flaunts it. The character is a good representation of the intersectionality of identities.

During an interview with Elle, Ncuti Gatwa talked about how the character of Eric helped him undo a lot of hate and taught him the importance of representation. He said, “I’ve experienced racism my whole life, and while I always believed in myself, always knew [racists] were stupid and uneducated, I guess it did misinform my view of how the world works.”

Ncuti thanked creator Laurie Nunn for “giving nuance to this gay, Black character and gifting him to the world.” He added, talking about the character, “He’s so fierce and unashamed. It was healing for me, and great for people to see themselves represented. It taught me the importance of representation: it’s so powerful and necessary.”
