‘The Owl House’ Gets First Bisexual Character Ever On A Disney TV Series
Disney Channel is being praised by the creator of Disney Channel’s The Owl House for featuring an LGBTQ teenager in an animated series. Luz Noceda, the fourteen-year-old character in the series, is the first bisexual character in a Disney TV series. Disney has featured a gay character as the main character in a movie but never in a series.
Dana Terrace, an executive producer for the show, has been publicly sharing her thoughts about how it is important for all people to be represented in the show and as a bi-sexual person she has always wanted to “write a bi character.”
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. (Thank you @NashRiskin and team!) Not to mention the amazingness of this crew.

Although Terrace, received the approval to move on in production, not everyone on Disney leadership was pleased with the idea of representing LGBTQ relationships.
After the show premiered, the doubts were silenced and the series is now fully supported by Disney TV and has already been renewed for a second season.
