Disney is making history with The Owl House. Dana Terrace, the creator of the animated series, confirmed on Twitter that the show’s lead character Luz Noceda (Sarah-Nicole Robles) is bisexual, a first for Disney and a big step in LGBTQ representation in kids’ television.

“I was very open about my intention to put queer kids in the main cast,” Terrace wrote. “I’m a horrible liar so sneaking it in would’ve been hard.” She then shared that, after the show was greenlit, she was told by “certain Disney leadership” that she would not be able to “represent any form of bi or gay relationship.” Terrace continued, “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.”
