    “My Little Pony” has introduced a same-sex couple on the show for the first time.

    Coinciding with Pride Month, the Discovery Family cartoon series "My Little Pony" has introduced a same-sex couple on the show for the first time.

    Writer-producer Michael Vogel told People on Thursday the timing of the episode, "The Last Crusade," is a happy coincidence. The episode introduces a lesbian couple, Aunt Holiday and Auntie Lofty. They care for Scootaloo.

    Co-showrunner Nicole Dubuc told Buzzfeed News the core of "My Little Pony" is to embrace what truly defines a family — love.
