‘My Little Pony’ Features First Ever Lesbian Couple During Final Season

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is making a splash during it’s final season!

The animated series introduced it’s first ever lesbian couple on the episode airing this morning (June 15) on Discovery Family.

In “The Last Crusade”, Scootaloo’s long absent parents were revealed and as a same sex couple, Aunt Holiday and Auntie Lofty.
