Please for the love of God watch DIARY OF A FUTURE PRESIDENT on Disney+
If you're looking for a diverse cast and queer representation this is the show for you. It currently has 2 seasons and needs your views to get a 3rd. And we NEED a third because there's so many cliffhangers and I'll die if I don't have conclusions.
If you liked One Day At A Time, Boy Meets World, Girl Meets World, Andi Mack, and even High School Musical The Musical The Series you'll love this show!
So here's why you should watch the show:
1) The main character is a young Latina girl named Elena. She is strong, intelligent, and highly independent with big dreams and goals. She wants to be President of the United States, which she achieves in the future and the show shows how she gets there. She's a great role model character for young girls because she's very goal driven, passionate, and ambitious but she's not perfect. She messes up sometimes and makes mistakes, but she bounces back every single time. She's just the kind of leading lady that yound tv needs right now.
2) Bobby is officially my all time favorite gay character. When you first meet him he's the typical cool older brother who is captain of his tennis team and likes a girl. But after some self reflection while having a girlfriend he realizes that he may like his new guy friend more than his girlfriend. Disney FINALLY has a show that accurately shows the struggles of discovering your sexuality and finding the courage to own it, accept it, love it, and come out to those you love about it. Bobby's journey of discovering his sexuality has been so beautifully done, the writers really just NAILED it. And to top it off we get an ACTUAL coming out where he actually says the words "I'm gay". Disney is getting brave and we love to see it!
3) And there's MULTIPLE queer people in this show. From the mom's best friend and her girlfriend, to the mom's co-worker, to Elena's classmate having two moms. There's so much representation to show that queer people exsist in everyone's day to day lives and its NORMAL.
4) The show does such a good job of representing a latinx family as well as including other cultures
4) The mom, Gabby, starts dating a coworker, Sam. She hasn't dated anyone since losing her husband a few years ago. Its an adjustment for her and the kids, who aren't the most accepting from the start. They show the struggles of one of your parents dating someone new and does a great job showing how hard it can be to accept but ultimately how great it could work out in the end.
5) The show isn't scared to talk about a bunch of different, important, topics. From friendships ending, to what it means to work in politics, to liking boys, to not judging people based off rumors or appearances, to the consequences of trying to grow up too fast, and so much more.
So please, GO WATCH THE SHOW! It's the exact kind of show that needs to be on tv right now. From the diverse cast, to the accurate queer representation, to the important topics they touch on with no fear. This show deserves a season 3, and hopefully more seasons after that!

i no longer wish to live in a world where according to netflix big mouth deserves a fifth season but anne with an e or kipo and the age of wonderbeasts or one day at a time don’t deserve more than three

do you like julie and the phantoms and are impatiently waiting for the season renewal? we’re you an andi mack stan that wish tyrus wasn’t as censored? did you watch one day at a time and wish that there was another version of the show that could offer similar morals to a slightly younger audience? do you just watch media targeted toward children to cope?
then you should watch diary of a future president on disney+ (once i find some, i’ll rb with some links to watch without d+). the second season just came out (8/18/21) and it has very similar vibes to all of the shows i just listed, not to mention it also has:
a latina mc who is learning how to navigate middle school and discovering her passion in life (she’s the one who becomes president in the future)
her brother who has a fully fleshed out queer storyline and is also navigating high school
her mom who is trying to navigate welcoming her new boyfriend into the family
her mom’s best friend who is passively a lesbian
themes of how to deal with grief
themes of how to engage in activism
dealing with periods
dealing with microaggressions
found family except they’re also actually family
and SO much more
just do yourself a favor and watch it so it can get a season 3 bc season 2 ended on a cliffhanger and there’s no way it can just be left at that

guys I know I’m a broken record and old news but seriously. One Day at a Time. You need to watch One Day at a Time. Please. It’s genuinely one of the funniest shows I’ve watched in a seriously long time, as well as emotionally so real, and here’s a short list of other reasons;
Gay main character
Gay main character gets nonbinary partner
PTSD main character
Main character dealing with depression, under a loving mother who doesn’t understand mental illness
also the mother is the catholic grandmother of the gay character and she learns to accept gay people almost immediately because it’s her granddaughter and the pope accepts gay people and who is she to go against the pope
but also there’s an episode where the gay character’s mother has to come to terms with how she loves her daughter and wants the best for her but also feels weird about her daughter being gay and learns how to accept that
also the catholic grandmother talks about her struggles growing up in america as an immigrant
did I mention the entire main cast are cuban
they make fun of/insult trump sometimes
they address sexism, especially in an episode where the male younger sibling starts falling for bullshit male tropes
the grandmother has a hilarious not-affair with the mother’s boss, a jewish doctor
there’s an episode where the jewish doctor bonds with the gay daughter teaching her how to drive, with his own playlist tailored to gay women
the best friend of the family, one of the novelty white characters, deals with and addresses addiction
they address “passing white” as the daughter doesn’t look as “cuban” as the rest
multiple episodes about racism, including one where the son gets angry about his family because his peers say racist things to him
I’m CERTAIN I’m forgetting like 50 things but seriously the show manages to address so many issues SO WELL while still, and I need to make this clear, being one of the FUNNIEST sitcoms of our time. While also making you cry.
Please just watch it.
