Disney Channel to Introduce the Network's First Gay Character

The Season 2 premiere of Disney Channel's Andi Mack is set to air Friday, and it will feature a major first for the network -- a youngster's coming out story.

[Andi Mack is the latest show from Terri Minsky, who is also responsible for giving us the iconic Lizzie McGuire.]

Sources say that the character Cyrus Goodman -- portrayed by 15-year-old Joshua Rush -- will grapple with his feelings for another boy in their friend group.

 

In a statement, the Disney Channel said:

"Andi Mack is a story about ‘tweens’ figuring out who they are. [Show creator] Terri Minsky, the cast and everyone involved in the show takes great care in ensuring that it’s appropriate for all audiences and sends a powerful message about inclusion and respect for humanity."
