The First Cartoon LGBT Representation That No One Talks About
With many people talking about the 2010s cartoons being progressive by representing LGBT such as
Main characters confirming their gay/lesbian/bi
and side characters being gay
But as someone who was born in 2000s in Canada, there’s one cartoon LGBT representation that I barely hear anyone talk about and that is Jean from 6teen.
She first appeared on the 89th episode of the show where Nikki befriends her and was curios if she’s lesbian or not. Unlike most shows where they have to hints that they are gay and show it by the end, 6teen just spill the beans by having her say “Yes, I’m into girls”.
And then they show her going to prom with a girl
This is probably the first cartoon show that represent LGBT in the most chillest way by telling that she’s into girls. No hints, no waiting till the end of the series or anything, just flat out saying she’s a lesbian.
