Disney Confirms 'The Owl House' Lead Character is Bisexual

Disney Confirms ‘The Owl House’ Lead Character is Bisexual. Disney has only recently begun representing LGBTQ+ characters in films and shows on their various networks, but now the company is beginning to explore more opportunities to feature these characters on Disney Channel.

Show runner Dana Terrace was very open from the beginning that she wanted to explore queer characters, specifically children coming to terms with who they are, and never intended to hide her intentions. Terrace shared via Twitter, “In [development] I was very open about ny intention to put queer kids in the main cast. I’m a horrible liar so sneaking it in would’ve been hard haha. When we were greenlit I was told by certain Disney leadership that I could NOT represent any form of bi or gay relationship on the [Disney] Channel.”

She continued, “I’m bi! I want to write a bi character, dammit! Luckily my stubbornness paid off and now I am VERY supported by current Disney leadership. (Thank you [Nash Riskin] and team!) Not to mention the amazingness of this crew.”

Executive-produced by Terrace, “The Owl House” is a horror-comedy series that follows Luz, a self-assured teenage human girl who accidentally stumbles upon a portal to the Demon Realm where she befriends a rebellious witch, Eda, and an adorably tiny warrior, King. Despite not having magical abilities, Luz pursues her dream of becoming a witch by serving as Eda’s apprentice at the Owl House and ultimately finds a new family in an unlikely setting.

Variety shared the synopsis of the confirmed moment, stating, “Luz has shown she’s attracted to male characters in the show, and in the two most recent episodes, “Enchanting Grom Fright” and “Wing It Like Witches,” a relationship between Luz and the recurring female character Amity is explored. It is revealed that Amity had intentions to ask Luz to Grom, their world’s version of Prom, and the two share a dance together.”
