ABC’s ‘Once Upon A Time’ To Feature Major LGBT Storyline

It’s been confirmed that season five of Once Upon a Time will feature an LGBT relationship. Between which characters, however, still remains a surprise.

“We know that community have been big supporters of the show and we would love to be able to tell a love story that reflects that,” executive producer Edward Kitsis told Entertainment Weekly of the LGBT community.

Adam Horowitz, also an executive producer, agreed.

“It’s something we want to do this year,” he said. “It’s something we think is due and important to do on the show. This is the world we live in.”

Season three revealed Mulan (Jamie Chung) was in love with Princess Aurora (Sarah Bolger), but because Aurora was pregnant with Prince Phillip’s (Julian Morris) baby, Mulan never told her.

However, the producers haven’t disclosed if the LGBT relationship is even involving Mulan.

“We want the show to reflect the world as it is now,” Horowitz said. “Whether that’s going to be with any particular character, we’re not going to say.”

“…it was like an ongoing inside joke between Sara and I. Like, ‘I secretly really care about you,’” Chung recalled. “And the audience as well, there was this conspiracy online, like, ‘Mulan loves Aurora!’ And I’m really glad that the writers listened because I really do think that’s what they planned from the beginning. They’re all about twists and like, why not? It felt so natural to begin with.”

The first episode, “The Dark Swan,” will premier September 27 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

With the passage of marriage equality last year, laws have been quickly changing across the United States.

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
