6 Cartoon Couples Allowed to be Queer at the Very End

So this is a thing. And it’s surprised me that I’ve been able to find six examples to make this list. But the series finale of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power provided the last piece of the puzzle and I finally finished this article. It’s a sign of the times. There have been multiple instances where a cartoon show’s series finale finally allows certain characters to come out of the closet and be true to their gay, lesbian and/or bisexual selves.

I think it’s great! But it’s still weird that it’s only allowed to happen in the series finale, right?

Gay at End List 01

Give us some series premiere action!

Some day, we are going to get a show where the main character and their love interest are both openly queer. Or are both somewhere on the LGBTQ+ spectrum. It’s gonna happen. Some day we’re going to get a lesbian Disney Princess. Some day, a big fancy company is going to purchase the rights to my own self-published queer comic, Gamer Girl & Vixen, and turn it into a popular, award-winning show! And no, that’s not the only reason I’m doing this list! I just wanted to shamelessly self-promote for a little bit.

Join me after the jump for the phenomenon that is LGBTQ+ cartoon couples allowed to come out and be proud at the very, very, very end of the series. SPOILERS for the end of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power.

Gravity Falls: The Anime!

Anybody else watching the excellent Gravity Falls? It’s a delightful cartoon in its own right, but the writers have also packed it with so much mythology that there are whole websites dedicated to unraveling the mysteries. I like that in a show. I loved it in Lost, and Gravity Falls definitely has a good head on its shoulders. This is a video made by Mike Inel, taking a scene from a recent Season 3 episode and redoing it as an anime. I think the animation looks pretty slick!
