Well-informed person has created a database that tracks the inclusion of LGBTQ + and gender minorities in animated shows for children.
Ursula, Bugs Bunny and Asami Sato. That’s three of the 259 LGBTQ characters Insider found in cartoons.
Queer culture has historically been present in this space. But, LGBTQ representation on the small screen has skyrocketed and changed over the past decade. https://t.co/h2WhmIPhfU pic.twitter.com/VzphTmG10V

The database includes shows from different programming networks like Netflix, Nickelodeon, ABC Kids, Cartoon Network, and more. In addition, it has programs like 3Down, 6Teen, Adventure Time, Young Justice, She-Ra Y Steven Universe.
It’s great, but the list isn’t 100% perfect. Young Justice it’s one of my favorite shows and I definitely noticed a character was missing.
That said, it’s still a great list and interesting to watch shows as old as Corset face, Clifford the big red dog Y Arthur offering LGBTQ content.
