Disney Show Features Channel’s First Gay Couple

The Disney Channel introduced the first same-sex couple in the network’s history, on a recent episode of its hit show Good Luck Charlie.

In Sunday’s episode, the main character, Charlie, has a playdate with a classmate, Taylor. As they prep for the playdate, Charlie’s mother and father argue over the name of Taylor’s mother: One thinks it’s Susan, the other thinks it’s Cheryl. When Taylor arrives, the family realizes she has two mothers, explaining the confusion.

In June, the children’s network announced it would feature a same-sex couple on an upcoming episode, citing a desire to reflect a sense of diversity “relevant to kids and families around the world.” Since the episode is the second-to-last of the series, Sunday’s introduction will likely be Susan and Cheryl’s only appearance before it goes off the air in February.
