Disney Channel Confirms First Bisexual Lead Character!

The first bisexual lead character on a Disney Channel series has been introduced to viewers!

The new animated series The Owl House follows a 14-year-old Dominican-American girl, Luz Noceda, who is bisexual.

The show’s creator Dana Terrace, who is bisexual, opened up on Twitter about how it took a lot of effort to convince Disney to let her include an LGBTQ+ character.

“I was very open about my intention to put queer kids in the main cast. I’m a horrible liar so sneaking it in would’ve been hard,” Dana said on Twitter. “I was told by certain Disney leadership that I could not represent any form of bi or gay relationship on the channel.”

“I’m bi! I want to write a bi character, dammit! Luckily my stubbornness paid off, and now I am very supported by current Disney leadership,” she said. “Representation matters! Always fight to make what YOU want to see! As OH continues I can’t wait to explore things that are important to me and my crew. Looking forward to the next chapter.”

While it wasn’t confirmed back then, the director of one of Disney Channel’s most beloved movies just confirmed a character is gay.
