Its run on The Disney Channel is coming to a close, and “Good Luck Charlie” is standing up for gay rights before the final curtain.

According to a report, the popular kids’ program will show a lesbian couple as the mothers of one of Charlie’s friends, and there has been mixed reaction across the board.

A spokesperson for Disney told press, “This particular storyline was developed under the consultancy of child development experts and community advisors. Like all Disney Channel programming, it was developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness.”

Former Disney darling Miley Cyrus added in, “I commend Disney for making this step into the light of this generation. They control…so much of what kids think! Life isn't bright sets & wardrobe & kids becoming superstars! This is INSPIRING.”

However, One Million Moms issued a statement to voice their disapproval of the decision. “Conservative families need to urge Disney to avoid controversial topics that children are far too young to comprehend.”
