Disney’s Andi Mack concluded its three-season run with a series finale that included the first gay romance on Disney Channel. Spoilers ahead.

The show already made history with its character Cyrus, who earlier in the show admitted to his friend Buffy that he had a crush on Andi’s boyfriend, Jonah. Later, Cyrus became the first character on Disney Channel to say the words “I’m gay” when he came out to Jonah.

Andi Mack pushed that storyline even further during its series finale episode where Cyrus and his friend TJ appear to embark on a romantic relationship. TJ shares with Cyrus his real name and the conversation progresses from there…

The series finale concluded with the gang singing along to Born This Way by Lady Gaga.

The very queer cartoon series Steven Universe just dropped a trailer for its upcoming movie adaptation. The show follows a group of genderless aliens called The Crystal Gems. They, along with half-human, half-Gem Steven, attempt to save Earth from the uncaring rulers of the Gem Homeworld.

The show, which also featured a same-sex wedding, made history when it won its first GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Kids & Family Program this year. It was, in fact, the first animated series to do so.

The seven-minute film The Real Thing, which screened at the 2017 Outfest in Los Angeles and the 2018 New England Film Festival, follows Allie (Sophie Giannamore), who has transitioned while her soldier father has been on an active tour of duty.

Unfortunately for Allie, her classmates and teachers have yet to accept her as her authentic self ― and when she returns home to spot her dad standing in her room, she’s worried he’ll react similarly.
