Nickelodeon is sending a message Loud and clear.
The company will introduce a biracial, same-sex couple in an upcoming episode of its animated series Loud House, making it the first show in Nickelodeon history to feature a married, same-sex couple, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Many have taken to Twitter to praise Nickelodeon for the progressive move.
“Can we talk about how AWESOME it is that Nickelodeon’s #TheLoudHouse feat. An interracial gay couple? #YesEquality,” one person tweeted.
Another Twitter user wrote: “The Loud House was already our new favourite cartoon and now they’ve gone and done this brilliant thing.”
