According to Pride, Double Dare, a Nickelodeon game show, had its first same-sex couple of the show!
The game show, currently on its third season, features families who compete against each other in trivia and obstacle courses. Well, in this past episode, the show decided to change up their contestants. In addition to their typical contestants, the show features a family with two dads.
This is one of those things that I hope won't be a big deal soon, but right now I think it's worth noting:
Last night's episode of Double Dare featured a family with two dads competing, which I think has to be one of the first real-life examples of same-sex families on kids' TV. pic.twitter.com/Fd5Fm3UBiB

The announcer said this when introducing them:
“In Blue, we have Oscar and Marcos and their dads Liberty and Bryan. They love football and they love each other. They are team Double Dads. That’s right! It’s about time we had double dads on Double Dare.”
Also, more family game shows need to have gay couples of their show. Their exclusion from these shows contributes to homophobia, by making it appear that they are not worthy of being included. By featuring more gay couples, homosexuality can make further steps to be normalized. In addition to this, it can show that gay couples are indeed human!
