Loud House same sex couple

Nickelodeon’s Loud House made history Wednesday night. For the first time ever the cable network introduced a biracial gay couple on one of its original animated series. The Loud House, which first aired in May, is about Lincoln Loud, his 10 sisters and his relationship with his best friend, Clyde McBride. This Wednesday evening audiences were introduced to Clyde’s parents, who are a same-sex married couple, as they dropped him off at a sleepover. Clyde’s parents were voiced by Michael McDonald and Wayne Brady. Well, here’s hoping that this is the first of many times we see Clyde and his parents make primetime.
