Arthur has hosted its first ever gay marriage!
The long-running children’s show which is currently in its 22nd season outed their first gay character, Mr Ratburn.
The elementary school character wedded his fiance Patrick in an episode called “Mr. Ratburn and the Special Someone” on Monday.
Its received widespread applause for teaching kids about different types of relationships and families.
So I was watching the new episode of Arthur and they just confirmed Mr.Ratburn is gay by him having a same sex marriage. Wow…that’s huge for them to do 🎉👏🏾
