Nickelodeon cartoon Loud House to feature married gay couple
Nickelodeon’s animated series Loud House is making some noise with its pioneering decision to feature a same-sex married couple into the show — a first for the children’s network.
Clyde McBride’s parents, Harold and Howard, are a gay, interracial married couple in the series, EW has confirmed. The characters will be voiced by comedians Wayne Brady and Michael McDonald. Loud House, currently in its first season, follows Lincoln Loud, who struggles being the only boy in a family where he is outnumbered by his 10 sisters. Clyde McBride is one of Lincoln’s friends.
So far the reaction to the same-sex couple has been positive, with Twitter users praising the decision and an excerpt from the cartoon featuring the new characters.
The groundbreaking episode of Loud House will air Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on Nickelodeon. The news was first reported by Variety.
