In the show Luz tries to become a witch after stumbling on a portal to another world instead of going to a juvenile detention camp. She makes friends with a witch, Eda the Owl Lady, and her demon roommate King, and Luz becomes Eda’s apprentice.

In an episode last week, Luz was asked to go to a dance by another girl who “framed in such a way that it’s fairly clear her feelings are more than platonic,” wrote Julie Muncy on io9.

On Twitter, Owl House creator Dana Terrace confirmed that Luz is bi.

She said that Disney at first told her that she “could NOT represent any form of bi or gay relationship on the Channel.”

“Luckily my stubbornness paid off and now I am VERY supported by current Disney leadership,” she wrote on Twitter. Terrace is herself bi.

On Twitter, Alex Hirsch, the creator of the Disney series Gravity Falls, which ran from 2012 to 2016, said that Disney “FORBADE me from any explicit LGBTQ+” representation.

“Apparently ‘happiest place on earth’ meant ‘straightest,’” Hirsch wrote.
