Joining “Arthur,” the cartoon series “My Little Pony” will feature a same-sex couple in Saturday’s episode to coincide with LGBT “pride month.”
The show’s ninth and final season will feature a lesbian pony couple in an episode called “The Last Crusade,” BuzzFeed News reported on Wednesday.
“‘My Little Pony’ has always been about friendship and accepting people (or ponies) that are different from you. So it just felt like something important to do,” Michael Vogel, the show’s writer and producer, said in an interview with the outlet.
Nicole Dubuc, co-showrunner, added: “I think it’s fantastic that we can show that what truly defines a family is love — that, to me, is the core of ‘My Little Pony’.”
