Creator Laurie Nunn says that presenting such interactions -- such as chest-binding among nonbinary characters -- matter-of-factly with plenty of detail, is part of the show’s effort “to progress these conversations forward.” “It felt important to me that we see two nonbinary characters communicating with each other onscreen,” Nunn tells The New York Times. “It’s not just representation; it’s having as much of it as possible within the scope of the show.” To portray such intimacy, Sex Education uses intimacy coordinators and a healthy dose of communication. “The show goes to great lengths to make sure that our actors are as protected as possible,” says Nunn. George Robinson, who, like his character Isaac, uses a wheelchair, found themselves serving as both performers and de facto consultants, ensuring that the details and dynamics of their scenes were accurate. “Obviously, he’s playing a character, but it’s making sure that it feels authentic and true to his experience as a disabled actor,” says Nunn.
