My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is rounding out the final season by celebrating Pride. The cartoon will reveal a lesbian couple on this week’s episode.
The episode is titled “THE LAST CRUSADE”
From USA TODAY:
Young Scootaloo’s family, who have been missing in action for the entirety of the series, are finally introduced in the upcoming episode and it’s revealed that her current guardians, Aunt Holiday and Auntie Lofty, are a same-sex couple.
The couple have appeared in the book “Ponyville Mysteries: Riddle of the Rusty Horseshoe,” but this is their first time on screen.
Michael Vogel, producer and writer of the series, confirmed on Twitter that Aunt Holiday and Auntie Lofty are not just friends or siblings.

Aunt Holiday and Auntie Lofty have already been a Ponyville Mysteries book. This will be the first time they appear in the cartoon.
Hasbro’s head of global communication Julie Duffy said,
“We have featured many types of families in the show over the past nine seasons and we hope this helps to provide kids and fans from all backgrounds an opportunity to identify with our characters and learn from their stories.”
Way to go HASBRO!

Where do you watch MLP? (You are a future Brony aren’t you?) If you’re in the US and have Discovery Family Channel, you’re at the top of the list for new episodes as well CCas re-runs! NETFLIX also has a large supply of previous seasons. No worries about boy cotters calling for the end of the show for this choice, as this is the final episode of their final season.
