GLAAD, the world’s LGBTQ media advocacy organization, has announced the very exciting news that Nickelodeon's hit animated series The Loud House for a award in the 28th Annual GLAAD Media Awards!
The GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives.
The Loud House has been nominated for the "Outstanding Individual Episode (in a series without a regular LGBTQ character)" award in the 28th Annual GLAAD Media Awards for the episode "Attention Deficit", in which Lincoln begins spending time at Clyde's house when Clyde McBride's fathers, Harold and Howard, give him more attention than he gets at home. The episode has been nominated for the award for including and portraying gay parents in a positive light. Clyde parents are voiced by comedians voiced by Wayne Brady (The Wayne Brady Show, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Everybody Hates Chris, Let's Make a Deal) and Michael McDonald (All Grown Up!, Invader Zim, Futurama, Ghostbusters: Answer The Call (2016), Spy, Scrubs).
Although the networks first-ever married same-sex couple, Harold and Howard McBride aren't the networks first same-sex couple. In 2014, the series finale of Nickelodeon's hit original animated series The Legend of Korra ended with Korra and Asami, two of the shows female characters, embarking on a romantic relationship, with fans endearingly calling the couple 'Korrasami'.
