Cartoon Network, a TV channel primarily targeting children, is encouraging its viewers to celebrate Pride month and to “stand proud all year long!”
A tweet to followers showed the “Powerpuff Girls”, and included the hashtags “#powerpuffyourself,” “#pridemonth” and “#powerfuffgirls.”
This is not the first time Cartoon Network showed its support for the LGBTQIA community.
In 2018, two female characters, Sapphire and Ruby, got engaged on its show “Steven Universe,” making it the first children’s show to feature a same-sex engagement.
On a separate occasion also last year, the show “Adventure Time” featured two female characters kissing on the lips.
