Disney XD’s Animated Series Just Featured Its First Same-Sex Kiss


Popular cartoon series Star vs. the Forces of Evil, which airs on Disney XD, just went full 2017 and aired its first ever same-sex kiss in the episode “Just Friends,” according to Complex.

The headline-making scene involves a moment at a boy band concert that inspires crowd-wide romance with their tune, “Just Friends.” As the camera pans the audience, you spot not one but two same-sex couples kissing. The revolutionary moment has yet to be met with major opposition, but we’re not holding our breath.

Disney is no stranger to diversity and inclusion. Their series Good Luck Charlie (where the network’s first gay character appeared) and Gravity Falls have addressed similar issues in the past.

The ever progressive Nickelodeon already has an interracial same-sex married couple in their animated series, The Loud House.

Star vs. the Forces of Evil was reportedly renewed for a fourth season.
