The Disney Channel has confirmed that its “The Owl House” series will feature the first bisexual character to debut on a television series.

The series’ creator, Dana Terrace, said that the decision to add an LGBTQ+ character was not supported by “certain Disney leadership” at first.

“I was very open about my intention to put queer kids in the main cast. I'm a horrible liar so sneaking it in would've been hard," Terrace tweeted.

“When we were greenlit I was told by certain Disney leadership that I could NOT represent any form of bi or gay relationship on the Channel,” she added.

“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,” Terrace tweeted.

The character, 14-year-old Dominican-American girl, Luz Noceda, is not Disney’s first LGBTQ+ character, CNN reports.

Pixar’s short film “Out” features a main character who is gay. The film revolves around a man named Greg who is afraid to tell his parents he’s gay and worried they will see a picture of him and his boyfriend when they help him move.
