Disney’s Good Luck Charlie to Air Episode with Lesbian Mothers, No Surprise

By Angeline Acain

Although only at the start of its first season, my teenage daughter loves watching the new ABC Family television series “The Fosters” exclaiming after the premier, “It’s so great to watch a television show with parents like mine – two mothers!” (The cast of The Fosters were on Gay Parent magazine’s May-June 2013 issue cover, see image below).

And like many American teenage girls, my daughter enjoys watching the Disney Channel including its show “Good Luck Charlie.” When I read the following in TV Guide, “ In a first for the Disney Channel, next season an episode of Good Luck Charlie will feature a family with two moms,” I was not at all surprised.

What some viewers don’t realize is that ABC Family is a subsidiary of the Disney-ABC Television Group division of The Walt Disney Company. And ABC Family has already broken ground by featuring a family with two moms with their new television series “The Fosters.” In fact two of the main actors from The Fosters, Jake T. Austin and Maia Mitchell have starred and currently star in Disney productions. And that is another reason my daughter loves watching The Fosters – she’s  familiar with these actors from the Disney Channel because she’s been watching them grow in their careers since she was in elementary school. On top of that, my daughter has always thought Jake T. Austin was cute ever since she saw him in the 2007 Disney movie, “Johnny Kapahala: Back on Board.”

With all this positive progressive programming being planned I was surprised to see the negative feedback posted on an unofficial Good Luck Charlie Facebook page from angry parents. Some of the posters said they will stop their children from watching the show (good luck with that). The episode is set to air in 2014 and Disney has not yet announced who will play the lesbian moms. But until then I recommend all LGBT parents and allies to go to this unofficial Good Luck Charlie Facebook page and show your support, here’s the link: www.facebook.com/GoodLuckCharlie
