Gay Dads to Be Featured on Netflix's Upcoming 'She-Ra' Reboot
Hurrah for She-Ra! Netflix's reboot of the popular 80s show includes two gay dads.
During New York Comic Con earlier this month, the case of Netflix's reboot of "She-Ra and the Princesses of Power" revealed that the character of Bow will have two gay dads.
The secret was revealed after Aimee Carrero, who voices She-Ra, was asked who were favorite characters on the upcoming show were, and she responded "Bow's dads."
Marcus Scribner, who voices the character of Bow, added: "It's not some topical thing that really needs to be discussed, it just is. Bow has two dads. I feel like [She-Ra] just reflects a lot of modern families and things that are going on in the world around us. I don't want to talk too much about their personality types and how they each factor in, because that was a bit of a Comic Con spoiler alert session, but it's definitely super cool. … Just know that they play an integral role in a couple scenarios."
As reported by Into, animated series have become increasingly LGBTQ friendly in recent years, with shows like The Legend of Korra, Steven Universe, and Voltron: Legendary Defender all featuring queer characters. And gay dads in particular are popping up in television shows of all varieties. We're happy to see She-Ra added to the list! The show debuts on Netflix on November 17th, be sure to check out the teaser promo video below:
