‘The Owl House’ makes history with Disney’s first bisexual lead character

Series creator Dana Terrace noted, “I was very open about my intention to put queer kids in the main cast.”

‘The Owl House’, a Disney Channel animated series, has made history by featuring Disney’s first bisexual lead character. Luz Noceda, a fourteen-year old who travels to another world to become a watch, has shown she’s attracted to male characters in the show, and in the two most recent episodes, a relationship between Luz and the recurring female character has been explored more extensively.

“In [development] 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 wrote. “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,” Terrace commented on Twitter.
