Mr Ratburn From Arthur Just Officially Came Out As Gay



Believe it or not, kid favourite TV show Arthur is still going strong. It’s 22 seasons in (!) and in the most recent premiere, Arthur’s teacher, Mr Ratburn, got married.

The episode’s plot was about Mr Ratburn’s wedding. The children in his class initially confused Ratburn’s sister (voiced by Jane Lynch) as his wife.

However, it turned out that Mr Ratburn’s fiance was, in fact, a man.

It’s great to see more representation on TV, and the kids’ reactions were exactly as they should be – it really doesn’t matter what gender your spouse is, it’s all about love.

In similar news, get out some rainbow-coloured spandex because Avengers: Endgame finally featured the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first openly gay character.
