Disney Channel series “Andi Mack” has made history by depicting the network’s first teenage gay couple.
The season three finale of the series, which aired July 26, concluded with the scene between Cyrus Goodman (played by Joshua Rush) confessing his attraction to his classmate TJ Kippen (Luke Mullen).
“Is there anything else you want to tell me?” Cyrus asks TJ, to which he replies, “Yeah.” Cyrus then reaches out and holds TJ’s hand.
The homosexual declaration was made in the episode along with another scene in which the pair sang along to Lady Gaga’s LGBT anthem “Born This Way.”
In 2017, Disney announced that the show’s second season would begin showing Cyrus Goodman’s “self discovery” path.
The series was not renewed for a fourth season.
While this was Disney’s first depiction of a teen same-sex relationship, the first same-sex adult couple in a Disney show for kids occurred in 2014 on “Good Luck Charlie.”
