10 Awesome Same-Sex Couples Featured on Your Fave Cartoon TV Series
There are LGBTQ+ characters all over TV lately (even though some of them met an unfortunate fate), and we’re definitely here for it! In addition to being featured on live-action television dramas, Disney classics, etc., some of our fave same-sex couples come at the hands of awesome TV cartoons.
We’re not going to beat around the bush — there are nowhere NEAR enough LGBTQ+ romances on the small screen in general, but especially of the animated variety. As much as we love watching Adventure Time‘s Princess Bubblegum and Marceline the Vampire Queen together, there seriously needs to be more openness to ~unconventional~ pairings soon. In the meantime, check out 10 current same-sex couples on your fave toons!
Asami Sato & Korra on The Legend of Korra
In 2014, the creators of The Legend of Korra confirmed the relationship between Asami and Korra.
"Korra and Asami fell in love," they explained. "Were they friends? Yes, and they still are, but they also grew to have romantic feelings for each other." This only made the show more amazing because Kora and Asami were one of the first female same-sex couples to be featured on a Nickelodeon cartoon!
