In a first for Disney Junior, a recent episode of the TV network’s animated children’s program “Doc McStuffins” featured lesbian moms as the heads of one household. The show, now in its fourth season, is geared toward children ages 2 to 5, according to Common Sense Media.
The episode entitled “The Emergency Plan” aired on the Disney Channel last weekend. It showed two doll moms who are a couple, played by well-known lesbian Wanda Sykes and Portia de Rossi. LGBT activists are applauding Disney for the move.
“Children like mine deserve the chance to see their families reflected on TV, and this episode does just that in a beautiful and positive way,” said Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD.
