We’ve written about the lack in representation of diverse families — especially those of the LGBT community — in the media and in kid-friendly films and TV shows. Well, we can celebrate tonight because Nickelodeon is making a great move by debuting interracial gay dads on the animated show, “The Loud House.”
In tonight’s episode, Lincoln Loud invites his friend Clyde for a sleepover. Clyde arrives with his two dads who are slightly overprotective — like any parent upon their child’s first sleepover.
Immediately before Clyde and his dads arrive for the sleepover, Lincoln exclaims, “This is it. Time to make history,” which is just a bit ironic, in all the right ways.
Check out a short clip from the upcoming episode:
