Nickelodeon Debuts its First Gay, Interracial Parents

+

Nickelodeon has officially led the way for LGBTQ characters with the introduction of its first gay, interracial couple on The Loud House, a new animated series about a noisy family with 10 siblings. In the latest episode, premiering tonight, lead character Clyde McBride introduces his two dads, voiced by Wayne Brady and Michael McDonald, to his friend Lincoln—an exchange that’s natural and executed without sensationalism.



Since the clip began circulating on Twitter last week, the show has already received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback. Progress is a beautiful thing. See some responses, below.
