Disney continues to make positive steps on LGBT+ representation, confirming for the first time that a lead Disney Channel protagonist is canonically bisexual.
The Owl House, which airs on the Disney Channel, has previously dropped hints that its lead character Luz, a 14-year-old Dominican-American, might be queer.
In the latest episode, viewers discovered that Amity was planning to ask Luz to go to prom with her, prompting creator Dana Terrace to confirm that at least one of them is bisexual.
Terrace wrote on Twitter that it had always been her intention to include queer kids in the main cast.
When Hirsch began making his show in 2012, he said, Disney forbade him from any explicit LGBT+ representation (though its final episode revealed two supporting male characters were in a relationship).
Apparently happiest place on earth meant straightest, he said, adding that he was so proud and happy that Owl House has brought explicitly queer animated main characters to Disney television.
The upcoming Marvel epic Thor: Love and Thunder is set to explore Valkyries (Tessa Thompson) bisexuality, which has not yet been depicted on-screen.
Last year the Disney Channel introduced its first-ever gay character, Andi Macks Cyrus Goodman (Joshua Rush), who became part of its first-ever same-sex relationship in the shows series finale.
Since then, Disneys Pixar imprint has debuted an openly lesbian character, with Lena Waithe making a cameo in Onward, and has released its first-ever LGBT-themed short, Out.

Sure, they ought to save the company.
Why are LGBT type activists allowed to say “Queer”, when if you or I say queer, we get condemned??? Similar to how blacks are allowed to say the dreaded “N” word, but the rest of us aren’t??? Is that where we are with the word “queer”???
Live children alone.
My days of watching the Wonderful World of Disney on Sunday evenings back in the 1970s (complete with the late Dick Wesson as announcer) really do look like they took place in a very different time and world compared to the homo stuff being pushed now.
This will be a bigger bomb than the one in Beirut.
Streaming service now available in Hell.
“confirming for the first time that a lead Disney Channel protagonist is canonically bisexual.”
Was the confirmation performed in person or did the Disney execs watch a taped bisexual performance?
Disney has been overtaken by the gay community for a long while now.
Dizzyland? What is Dizzyland?
While I hope and pray Disney goes bankrupt, the eternal punishment these Disney decision makers will face by leading little children into the abyss will be horrific. It will be eternal punishment they will fully and rightfully deserve.
If only there was a word to describe the Left’s incessant need to sexualize the lives of children.
Children don't watch this stuff. Children are watching YouTube videos.
An entire generation of children are being raised that watch nothing on the corporate cable channels.
A 14 year-old pervert? She should still be playing with dolls.
“canonically” bisexual? really?
