This marks the first time the Disney Channel has EVER aired a same-sex kiss on one of their animated programs.

To their credit, this isn't the first time the cable network has included LGBT characters in their shows. In 2014, Good Luck Charlie featured a lesbian couple, and in 2016, the creators of Gravity Falls confirmed that two male characters were in fact gay, and in a relationship.

We are so proud of Disney for highlighting the beautiful diversity of our world!
