Nickelodeon Makes Network History With First Married Gay Characters

Role models.

Nickelodeon has done a real cool thing with the introduction of a pair of gay dads to its kids' cartoon The Loud House. But they haven't stopped smashing the status quo there — to make matters even more progressive, the couple is biracial. Take that, conservatives!

The two dads will appear in an episode called 'Overnight Success', which sees main guy Lincoln Loud hosting a sleepover for his friend Clyde McBride. Clyde shows up at Lincoln's house with his two dads in tow, just casually making history for the network.

Exposing young minds to normalised, positive portrayals of gay parents is so essential, so we are cheering hard for Nickelodeon for doing their bit. Take a look at the episode preview below.
