The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
A character on a Disney Channel show called "The Owl House" is reportedly Disney's first bisexual lead character.
Series creator Dana Terrace wrote on Twitter that she identifies as bisexual.
"In dev 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 haha. 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 wrote in a tweet. "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," she said in another tweet.
Disney has previously made forays into including LGBT characters, such as the gay main character in a short Pixar film called "Out."
